    How long is the wine tour?

    Our Santa Barbara private tour is an all-day adventure typically lasting between 5 – 6 hours allowing time to savor each moment and indulge in Santa Barbara’s exquisite wines and views. Morning departures are typically in the 10:00 hour, varying slightly with each hotel location. Expect to return in the late afternoon about 4-4:30 pm.

    How many Wineries do we visit?

    We will visit 3 wineries, spending a leisurely 1 hour at each location. This allows for an immersive experience without feeling rushed, giving you ample time to appreciate the winery’s unique offerings and ask any questions you might have about their wines or winemaking process.

    Do I need a reservation?
    Yes. Grape Adventures offers scheduled pickups only, so reservations are required. Please book online as soon as you have determined your tour date and pick-up location.

    What type of vehicles do you use?
    Our vehicles are new Mercedes Sprinters with leather seats, high ceilings, and large picture windows

    How much wine is served during a tasting?
    Most wineries serve 4 to 6 one-ounce pours of different wines you select from their menu. After visiting a few wineries, these seemingly small tastings can add up to close to a bottle of wine, making it very important to have a designated driver.

    How much do wine tastings cost?

    Tasting fees at the wineries are not included and are charged extra by the wineries. The cost of visiting a vineyard in Santa Barbara can vary widely depending on the vineyard and the type of experience you are looking for.

    We select wineries with warm & friendly service, and excellent wines that are moderately priced. Wine tasting fees typically run about $25-$30 per tasting. Most wineries will waive the tasting fee if you purchase bottles of wine to go. The number of bottles required varies from winery to winery.

    How many people are on the trip?
    We avoid having large groups on our scheduled tours. Our wine adventures are typically 6 to 8 guests but are limited to a maximum of 10 guests to ensure the best experience.

    Is this tour escorted by a group leader or host?
    Yes, this tour is escorted by a Grape Adventures group leader/host who is knowledgeable and fun.

    Can I cancel my tour?
    Yes. If you need to cancel outside of 24 hours of your tour, we will refund you 100%. If your trip is within 24 hours, we will credit you for a future trip.

    Am I required to purchase wine from the wineries?
    No, you are not obligated to purchase wine from the winery.

    However, if you enjoyed the wine, the best way to support local wineries is to take home a few bottles. Your Grape Adventures host can store your purchased wine in the air-conditioned tour vehicle.

    Is lunch included on the tour?
    There are picnic box lunches available for purchase. You may enjoy them at one of the wineries or vineyards we visit.

    Are there any additional fees?
    No. Taxes and fuel surcharges are included. Gratuity for the host and driver is at your discretion.

     Are gratuities included?
    No. Customers may provide gratuity at their discretion to their host and driver at the end of their tour as a personal “thank you” for a job well done.
