Santa Barbara Vineyard to Table Taste Tour by Bike
From US$149,00
Overview
Ride through the towns and vineyards of the Santa Ynez Valley wine region on this bike tour with transport from Santa Barbara. With a guide, you'll pedal a specialized hybrid bike to a winery and other spots for wine tastings, an olive-oil tasting, and an Italian-inspired picnic lunch. A bike tour allows you to enjoy better views of the scenery than from inside a car, and three distance options are available to suit your ability and preference.
What to Expect
Depart your Santa Barbara pick up location at 9am in the comfort of a brand new air-conditioned high top shuttle van for a scenic drive over San Marcos Pass and into Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Barbara's gorgeous wine country.  Upon arrival, get fitted to your Specialized comfort hybrid bike and begin your guided tour of the region.  The ride will take your past a Lavender Farm, beautiful ranches, small private vineyards, and gorgeous sprawling estate vineyards.  Get a chance to trek through the local towns and experience a quaint Danish village. We have three versions of our riding course to ensure the right amount of comfort or challenge to suit your desire.
At the conclusion of the ride in the noon hour, experience the fruit of the vineyards you just passed in the glass at an award winning tasting room in Los Olivos.  Expect to be treated like a VIP when you arrive and enjoy learning about wine from your guide and the friendly tasting room staff.
Afterward, whet your appetite before lunch with a tasting of local olive oils and balsamic at a charming olive farm.  From there, stroll the grounds of and established and lovely estate winery where another tasting and thoughtfully prepared and presented gourmet picnic lunch await you.  The fresh locally sourced ingredients are just the thing to both pair with your wine and re-invigorate you after your active tour.
The estate winery experience concludes early in the 3 o'clock hour and you are brought back to Santa Barbara in the comfort of the van by about 4pm, recharged and ready for an evening in our fair city.

We have seating for 14 in the van. We can take a private group that large fairly easily. For mixed groups, we have held the number to 8 and now occasionally 10 with our larger van to ensure everyone gets enough attention... More
