Full description
Enjoy a memorable day exploring California's famous wine culture and take off on a fun-filled, cultural tour of some of California's finest wineries, each with a character as rich and individual as the wines they produce. Leave your Santa Barbara-area hotel at 10:00 AM aboard a spacious custom shuttle. Throughout the day, stop at 4 different wineries to get an insider's look into wine-making and wine-tasting while sampling a full selection of wines at each of the various wineries. Pause during the day for a delicious picnic lunch in a scenic winery setting catered by one of Santa Barbara's top lunch restaurants. Santa Barbara Wine Country offers more than 120 wineries, and this tour supplier is one of the few companies that does not limit tours to a small portion of these. Instead, your day is flexible and takes into account your preferences in wine and scenery, as well as any special events or offerings at the wineries. In addition to the exciting tour, you will receive your own Value Passport that will enable you to get great discounts on a variety of top-quality wines that you may wish to purchase.

We had a wonderful wine tasting day with Grapeline Tours, with Chris at the wheel . The van was comfortable and we ran on schedule. We had time to relax at each of the 3 stops and as a bonus stopped at a fruit stand. Chris dropped us directly at our campsite with all of our winery purchases. She even doubled back an hour later with our flat of forgotten strawberries, that’s great customer service. She has a knack for capturing a great picture, so take advantage of her keen eye to frame a shot. Her singalong playlist was fantastic. We got a quick tour and local color of 2 cute towns, Solvang and Ballard. All in all a great day.
