Santa Ynez Wine Tours
Connoisseurs and Collectors Tour
Join Santa Barbara County’s Wine Experts for an amazing day!
Having been based here in Santa Barbara wine country for over 15 years, we have gained respect and have established relationships which have opened doors to the most unique and amazing experiences that the Santa Ynez Valley has to offer.
Hands down this is the best experience Santa Barbara County has to offer. We take you to amazing places based on our research and relationships. It’s crème de la crème and top notch – and all the things to make one amazing experience. Meet some of the top winemakers and/or owners in our area and travel to undisclosed locations to experience some of the best scenery Santa Ynez Valley has to offer. Most of our tour partners are not open to the general public, we cannot list them on our website and we do have to pre-qualify our guests. (In the ‘Notes’ section of the reservation form please enter ‘C & C Tour’, and a reservation specialist will contact you to discuss your options)

* This tour includes tasting fees at 3 premium locations, a delicious picnic lunch (see menu), door-to-door service, plenty of bottled water, and a 15% gratuity (12% for the tour host and 3% for the administrative staff). When we arrange these private VIP tastings with the winemakers, owners, family members or a GM, our reputation is on the line. They expect us to bring qualified guests who enjoy collecting wine. It is with this understanding that they pour wines they wouldn’t typically have open and will spend time getting to know you. So, there is a fine line between us being allowed to bring you and them wanting us to bring you. Therefore, we need to make sure you understand that purchasing is expected. Based on our experience we encourage a minimum of two bottles per person at theses exclusive locations. A few of these exclusive wineries may charge an additional $35-$60 per person to taste, which would need to pay directly to the winery. We will let you know which these are when arranging your tour.
