Our most popular tour and an experience you will never forget! This wine country tour will escort your party out of Santa Barbara and through the Los Padres National Forest, offering amazing views of mountains, lakes and sprawling hills.

We then head into the famous wine country town of Santa Ynez for lunch at Trattoria Grappolo. (Lunch not included in the price. Monday a different lunch location will be chosen.) After lunch we will head into the Santa Rita Hills wine region where you will taste at 2 of the area's top estate wineries. The Santa Rita Hills region is famous for their Pinot Noir & Syrah wines. As we return to Santa Barbara you will be treated to breathtaking views as we descend the mountain while overlooking the ocean, the islands and the American Riviera. (Sometimes the itinerary will be in reverse.) The price includes door to door transportation, as well as all tasting fees. We start this tour between 9:00 & 9:30 and drop back off around 4:00 & 4:30.
