What to Expect
This tour is Santa Barbara Backroads Wine Tours' most popular excursion and you will soon see why as you set out from Santa Barbara in an open-top H1 Hummer. It will take you into the San Ynez Valley, familiar from the movie “Sideways” and famous for its Pinots, Cabs and white wines

You will be picked up from your Santa Barbara hotel for a short visit to the city’s historic neighbourhood and a drive by the famous Santa Barbara Mission. The tour then follows the old stagecoach trail route to San Ynez and Solvang. The most scenic route, it takes in spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and islands.

Sit back and enjoy the sun as you cruise along. The 6-hour tour gives you time to chat and enjoy the scenery in comfort. It includes reservations and tasting fees at 4 beautiful vineyards, where the wines are lent their unique flavor courtesy of the coastal fog that lingers in the valley every evening.

Throughout the day you will taste about 30 different regional wines, all handpicked by the knowledgeable staff as the best examples of San Ynez’s gold medal-winning wines.

Departing Santa Barbara at 10:30 allows time for a leisurely lunch where you will get to pick from a selection of 27 sandwiches, all prepared using freshly baked breads. To make the experience extra special, your meal will be served right at a vineyard where the amazing sights and scents will delight all of your senses.
