Wine Tour of Santa Barbara
Many of us have seen the film Sideways, and were impressed with the humor of the movie, the seamlessness of the story, the gorgeousness of the scenery and natural beauty of the surroundings, and wondered, "Is that place real?" Well, we're here to tell you that it's more than real, and that the wines of Santa Barbara County are among some of the most respected in California, and therefore, the world.
Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah are king here, perfect for the climate of Santa Barbara's warm days and cool nights; but you'll also find pockets of micro-climate for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and others here. Among the forty or more wineries of Santa Ynez, Santa Rosa and Los Olivos (the areas depicted in the movie), you'll find a wide array of different styles and grape varieties that will astound you, and draw you into this magical and untouched paradise of the central coast of California.
Trained Sommelier Guide
Our expert wine guide will take you from Los Angeles to the eminently less crowded and more pretty wilds and semi-wilds of Santa Barbara County wine country, just two hours or so north of Los Angeles; but, in a way, a world apart. There, you'll sample wines from three different wineries during a mystical and special day that you won't soon forget. People return here again and again, and we're willing to guess that you will, too. Let us take you there for your first, or maybe not your first, Santa Barbara wine tasting experience on the Wine Tour of Santa Barbara
