We’ll take care of all the details while you enjoy the heart of Santa Ynez wine country, home to several very popular California vintners. This tour is a great opportunity to sample and learn about the region’s wines.
Your group will be picked up by air-conditioned van in the morning at a prearranged meeting spot. We will preview the day and head up to our first winery in the Santa Ynez Valley. Your guides will cover local human history and insight into Santa Ynez wine region along the way.
Lunch will be served in the shade at a favorite winery. Your guides will prepare an enjoyable deli style lunch catered by our private chef. Cold beverages will be provided.
We visit 3 of our local favorites in the area. Each winery has its unique vintages and award winning selections. Winery staff offer insight into specific blends and selections, and several wineries extend discounts on wine purchases to our guests.
We are usually done by 3 or 4pm, heading back to town. Departure and arrival times are flexible.
