Annual Wine Road Trip: Santa Barbara County April AND May 2024!

Each year, Chef Erin selects a different wine region to tour in VIP style! These trips are like no other, with a small group size of 16 or less and full VIP access. This all-inclusive trip starts once you make your way to the selected destination. From there we take care of airport transportation, and everything else during your stay! We rent a luxury estate for nightly accommodations, where you can take full advantage of the amenities of the estate. A typical day starts with an included continental breakfast at the estate, followed by a variety of VIP winery experiences (typically 3 per day), that include tours, reserve tastings, winemaker one-on-ones, cave tours and more. Each afternoon includes a winery lunch stop which varies from cellar experiences to casual picnics atop vineyards. Each day there is a dedicated driver who takes us around to each winery and back to the estate. Dinners are crafted by Chef Erin, these family style dinners also include a guest winemaker who shares their wines with the group in this unique tasting experience! 

Even with the pandemic, we have managed to make this trip happen every year since 2008! For our 20234trip we'll be heading to Santa Barbara County in April and May 2024. Each trip will have space for 12 attendees. As of January 2024, both trips are sold out.

Annual Guadalupe Valley Wine Road Trip!

 

Guadalupe Valley has a growing climate similar to the Rhone Valley, unfortunately most of the Country's wine production is not exported, but we're not going to let that stop us!  Join us on this full day trip to Baja California's Wine Region where we'll visit three different wineries and learn how our Southern Neighbors make awarding winning wines! This day starts our early with a warm breakfast from Chef Erin, Mimosas and fun as we head south on a passenger tour bus. From there we hit three wineries for tours, cave tours and VIP tastings of wine, as well as olive oil, grappa and mezcal (where available). Mid-day we make a stop for a gourmet 4-course wine lunch.

 

This trip is all inclusive and includes travel to the valley, breakfast, lunch, snacks, tasting fees and winery/driver gratuities!

 

Changes to crossing the boarder have prevented us from scheduling a current road trip, but we're hopeful we'll be able to get another one scheduled as soon as possible. To check out our last trip (Saturday, October 19th 2019), click HERE
