About Us

Dear Adventurer,

I’m Julia, founder and content creator at Grape Adventures. We curate wine travel information to help you plan your next self-guided trip to Central or Southern California Wine Country. And, starting in late May of 2021, we will offer Customized Guided Tours of Santa Barbara Wine Country or the Ojai Valley for up to 6 People per trip. We are unable to offer tours to Northern California or outside of the state of California. 

Thank you for visiting this page to learn more about who we are and why we do what we do. Originating in the New Year of 2020, Grape Adventures is an online resource and YouTube channel where we provide insider information to help wine country lovers and those less familiar –  learn more about:

Wine, Wineries, Wine Trails, Tasting Rooms, Winemakers, Vineyards, Local Cuisine, Lodging Options, Things To Do, Wine Country Wedding Venues and Vendors, Events, Pet-Friendly Wine Country Businesses and More.

Follow us here and on our Grape Adventures YouTube channel as we bring you features on wineries and wine country to help make planning your next trip easy. 

Eventually, we will feature additional written and video content on the famous Northern California areas of Napa and Sonoma, which are indeed spectacular. But initially, we are turning our focus on the lesser-known wine countries in our own backyard of Central and Southern California. 

It would seem that this time of the Covid-19 pandemic would be less than ideal to start such a venture. In most ways, that is more than correct. 

However, as the pandemic and March lockdowns began in the United States, we did not give up, expecting it would surely pass soon enough. But, when it didn’t, we quickly began to recognize the struggle of the wine country-related businesses we had been photographing and writing about and the human beings behind them. 

Today, our mission has evolved to share not only opportunities to explore the fine wine, beauty, and adventure that await in every wine country outing as things open back up and you personally feel safe in doing so, but to share the heart and stories of the people behind the wine country magic. 

By sharing their stories, we hope that you will feel a connection to the winemakers, chefs, hoteliers, and other wine country business owners and their employees. Please support these businesses as you are able – in person or online. 

This platform is dedicated  to…

the people of wine country – their dreams, their blood, sweat, tears, and their stories-

and equally as important…

YOU, the Grape Adventurer. 

For one most certainly does not exist without the other. 

Our desire is to share with you the things that we know, continually discover and love – and to connect you with the wine, food, people, places and things that will make your next wine country getaway your best trip ever. 

Wishing you all safe and happy Grape Adventures ahead,
