Santa Barbara & Santa Ynez Pick-Ups Available
This one of a kind Santa Barbara wine tasting tour highlights the region’s rich history and covers both sides of modern winemaking, from farming the grapes to producing the wine. Therefore, we don’t just limit our touring experience to the tasting room, but explore vineyards as well. During this ecotourism adventure, you’ll not only learn the difference between organic wine and wine made from organic grapes, but also how this important Santa Barbara industry of viticulture became what it is today. Our experience has taught us that wine tasting is enhanced when we slow down the process, making each visit a more meaningful and memorable encounter.
