Santa Ynez Valley – Where Wine is Divine
Our Sideways Wine Tour Enjoys Fruit of the Vine
Los Angeles boasts a number of local vineyards and wineries so we can please our wine loving private tour guests and visit the immediate area for wine tasting on a sightseeing tour. However, we can also pull out all the stops and take our custom tour VIP guests up to the Santa Ynez Valley north of Santa Barbara and retrace the route of the the characters of Rex Pickett‘s wonderful book (and Alexander Payne‘s award winning film) Sideways. As we are on a custom tour we can pull up to the signposts at the head of the valley and decide from there which wineries to visit as we sample the vintages across the valley floor. The tour is always open ended so we can visit as many tasting rooms as our guests desire. We also know some special dining rooms if a lunch or dinner stop is requested. We have plenty of room in our luxury SUVs for wine purchases. The drive up to the Santa Ynez Valley is beautiful with the Pacific Ocean on one side and the coastal mountains on the other. Lake Cachuma above Santa Barbara is as blue as the sky. Speaking of sky, we do not have to drive to this fabulous wine region. We have luxury twin-engine helicopters at our disposal to get us there in a jiffy. Of course, we will drive once there but flying means more time for wine tasting.
