Connoisseurs and Collectors Tour
Join Santa Barbara County’s Wine Experts for a magnificent day!
Having been based here in Santa Barbara wine country since 2001, we have gained respect and have established relationships that have opened doors to the most unique and impressive experiences that the Santa Ynez Valley has to offer.
2-8 Guests | 7 Days a Week
Hands down, this tour is the best experience Santa Barbara County has to offer. We take you, as our guest, to the properties that, based on our research and professional relationships, are the crème de la crème in this region. Guests will meet some of the top winemakers and/or winery owners and enjoy some of the Santa Ynez Valley’s most pristine scenery. Most of our tour partners are not open to the general public, so we cannot list them on our website and we do have to pre-qualify our guests. Each tour is customized for your needs.
(In the ‘Notes’ section of the reservation form please enter ‘C & C Tour’, and a reservation specialist will contact you to discuss your options).

*All inclusive pricing includes pick up at your location, tasting fees at 3 locations, delicious picnic lunch, and 12% gratuity for your host.
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 12% gratuity. 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.
