A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE

Sustainable Vine Wine Tours offers once-daily, all-day, Premium Winery and Vineyard Experiences to Santa Barbara County’s small production, family-owned wineries that are committed to sustainability.

NO HIRED DRIVERS
We are a two-person operation. With an outstanding reputation in the industry for over a decade, we provide a personalized and educational wine tasting experience hosted by the company owner, NEVER just a hired driver or employee. 
 
APPOINTMENT-ONLY ACCESS
Our tour gives exclusive access to premium estate vineyards, barrel rooms, and the people and stories behind the wine. Tastings typically take place in a seated and reserved location with a dedicated host. We do not visit public, standing bar, “walk-in” commercial wineries or tasting rooms. Our premium tour caters to guests serious about quality wine and unique experiences that are often hard to find on your own. 
 
PREMIUM, NON-COMMERCIAL WINERY AND VINEYARD LOCATIONS 
Select list of locations are based solely on top-tier, quality wines AND the quality of the unique experience. Tours are always customized based on wine preferences. Our premium list of locations are some of regions’s best and their wines often receive the highest scores in Santa Barbara County. Most locations are not open to the general public for a more intimate and private experience. 
 
Please note our select list of vineyard and winery locations DO NOT ACCOMMODATE BACHELOR OR BACHELORETTE parties. 
 
FULL-DAY ONLY: Tour day typically runs from 10:00am to 4:30/5:00pm departing from your location.
