A few of my co-workers went out for a fun day in Santa Barbara. We decided on a wine tour, so we wouldn't have to drive. The Grapeline wine tours was the way to go! Mike N. was our driver and was so knowledgeable about the area, as well as other areas. He was funny and made the trip a delight! We will definitely do this trip again!

This tour is such a laid back way to see all that Santa Ynez wine county has to offer - beautiful vineyards & delicious wine - all without the worry of transportation. The driver puts you at ease by seamlessly handling the driving, itinerary & lunch so you can focus on the important things - wine! Pete was amazing and made our trip perfect. Looking forward to another tour in the future!

Took a girlfriends trip to Santa Barbara for a long weekend, and being wine lovers, a tour to Santa Barbara wine country was a must. Grapeline offered convenient pick up at Sambo’s - a short 5 minute walk from our VRBO - and a fabulous place to eat breakfast before the big day of wine tasting! Our driver and host, John, was very personable, friendly and started our trip out right. He engaged us with facts about the area, sights we were seeing along the way, and made great conversation. We met up with the rest of our wine tasting party in Solvang then took a short trip to the wineries for the day. We had a private tasting area at Koehler and even got to venture into the vines and taste grapes that weren’t harvested yet. John picked up our catered lunch for a picnic lunch at the next winery. During the picnic John opened a bottle of bubbly for us to enjoy our lunch at a wonderful, picturesque spot. Throughout the day we discussed the movie ‘Sideways’ and the various spots the movie was shot. He told us stories of where everything was located and the before, during and after affects of the movie. To my surprise at the end of the day, John brought us to the Hitching Post for a quick photo opportunity and pointed out the Windmill completely making my day!!! We took a different route home that went along the Pacific Ocean and it was simply amazing. And in what could have been disaster, I left my cell phone on the shuttle but John came to the rescue and arranged to meet us to get my phone back. What a guy! Respectful, grateful, knowledgeable and professional. Thanks Grapeline and John! Will certainly be touring with you again. Cheers!
