5 Things to Do When Visiting Santa Barbara Wine Country

With a beautiful combination of rolling foothills, shallow valleys, and ocean breezes, Santa Barbara is a haven for microclimates. In turn, this makes for one of the most diverse grape producing regions we have.

Whether you fancy a quick weekend getaway or you’re planning a special bachelorette or anniversary trip, there’s plenty to keep you busy in Santa Barbara Wine Country.

Here are 5 of our favorite things to do in the area.


  • Spend the Day Wine Tasting


Prepare a picnic, book a wine chauffer and spend the day visiting the local wineries.

While it may be tempting to try and hit all the wineries in one day, it’s better to try just three or four in a day.

Fortunately, with a dedicated driver, you won’t have to worry about spitting during a tasting.


  • Plan a Big Night Out


Santa Barbara wine country is filled to the brim with delectable restaurants, plenty of shopping, and a vibrant night life. Book a party bus or limousine and explore Santa Barbara by night.


  • Watch a Performance at the Santa Barbara Bowl


This open-air venue is more intimate than the Hollywood Bowl and offers a year-round lineup of exceptional talent and live performances. Don’t forget to visit the Scranton Overlook just above the seats, where you can indulge in a glass of wine and take in the views that stretch from Carpinteria all the way to the bluffs of Hope Ranch.


  • Explore Santa Ynez Valley


If you really want to explore the best wineries in town, take a trip out to Santa Ynez Valley. The best way to explore the Santa Ynez Trail is to book private transportation for the day. Your driver will know the area and transport you to and from your destination safely.

Once you arrive in the valley, be prepared for majestic horses, sprawling gardens, and great picnic spots. There are also plenty of spas around for the ultimate pamper session.


  • Solvang


Stop in Solvang during your getaway. You’ll feel as though you’ve landed right in the middle of Denmark. Marvel at the half-timbered architecture and taste the pastries. You’ll feel like you’ve had a getaway from your getaway.

Santa Barbara wine country offers ample opportunities for rest, relaxation, and wine.
