What is the schedule for the day?
We have a planned itinerary that allows for you to have the freedom to do what you want and enjoy all the valley has to offer. We do not bundle fees into your tour price, so if you would like to buy one tasting and split it with your partner this is up to you, or maybe you just want to buy a bottle and enjoy it on the patio.
After we depart Santa Barbara we will head up into the wine country and the first stop will be a beautiful full production vineyard and tasting room. Here the tasting room staff will educate you on their specific wine making process and share with you a flight of 6 to 8 different tasting selections they are offering at that time. You will have about an hour to spend at this first winery.
Next up is some free time to explore the beautiful tiny town of Los Olivos. Here you will find great delis, sit down restaurants, as well as over a dozen different wine tasting rooms. Although they are not on vineyards these are amongst some of the finest wines in the valley, with vineyards in the area but just a little to far to visit on a day trip. You will have about 2 hours to eat, taste and explore this beautiufl location in the heart of the wine country.
Last but not least we will visit another one of our favorite full vineyard and tasting room, with about another hour to enjoy the views of a picturesque vineyard.
Your tour guide will help load up your purchases and we will whisk you back to Santa Barbara.
We allow you the flexibility to do what you want for lunch. Some guest choose to bring their own lunch with them, thus saving money and time so they can enjoy more of the tasting rooms in Los Olivos, others choose to take advantage of the various options available on our stop in Los Olivos. Blow is a list of some of the different choices.
