Visit Beautiful Wineries in Idyllic Santa Barbara Wine Country

$135 Per person Monday – Friday*

$140 Per Person Saturday – Sunday*

With breathtaking coastal mountains to the east and sublime beaches to the west, Santa Barbara is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Their wine country is no exception. The ebb and flow of ocean breezes makes the Santa Barbara Wine Country region a jewel in the crown of California viticulture. 

Santa Barbara Classic Wine Tours is committed to providing you with an unforgettable experience in the Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez wine country. They offer a fun, carefree, and educational tour that includes a variety of beautiful estate wineries, unique tasting rooms, private wine clubs and an artisan picnic lunch. Join us for a day exploring all that Santa Barbara wine country has to offer!

Our most popular offering, an all-inclusive small group tour (max of eleven guests) with four winery tasting fees and lunch included in the price! (Driver/guide tip not included.)

We provide door to door pick up in our comfortable Mercedes Benz vans at hotels in Montecito, Santa Barbara, and Goleta.  Please note, we do not pick up from private residences or Airbnb’s.

 If you are driving up from Los Angeles or booked at an Airbnb, we can meet you at the Santa Barbara Visitors Center parking lot at 1 Garden Street in Santa Barbara.

Please note, the campgrounds north of Santa Barbara (El Capitan & Gaviota) are out of their pick-up zone. Also, due to the extreme unreliability of the Amtrak train schedule, we do not except train station pick-ups.

The morning of your tour, your friendly local guide will pick you up at your hotel or designated location in one of their luxury 2016-2018 Mercedes Benz Sprinter or luxury 2016 Mercedes Benz Metris vans. Enjoy a scenic and carefree drive up to wine country.  Each small group tour (a maximum of eleven guests) includes visits to three beautiful estate wineries and one unique tasting room with all tasting fees included.  Also included is a relaxing artisan picnic lunch at one of the wineries.  Please see their menu for the various meal options that they offer.

Our pick-up time in the Santa Barbara area is between 9:15-9:45 am. The tour lasts approximately five to six hours.  To learn more about the wineries we visit, please check our Wineries page.
