Nothing says “luxury” like a bottle of exquisite wine, served at a stunning winery—overlooking idyllic grape rows blessed by Greek god of wine and fertility, Dionysus himself.

 

Wine is a necessary indulgence and an unparalleled pleasure—a revelation nothing short of a religious experience, made more special when enjoyed with a group.

 

It is in this spirit of festivity that wine connoisseurs from around the world spend lavishly on wine tours—hobnobbing with fellow wine enthusiasts to celebrate the finer things in life.

A Toast to Life

Most of us love wine, and even more enjoy traveling with friends and family—which is why it makes perfect sense to combine the two for an epic wine tour that promises a lifetime of memories!

 

You may think wine tours are an expensive investment, reserved only for a highbrow audience.

 

Contrary to popular opinion, however, wine is loved by people from all walks of life, which is precisely why wine tours are available in various packages for people with all kinds of budgets.

 

When selecting an affordable wine tour in California, for instance, you may come across a number of options—some on the expensive end; others, just the opposite.

 

Regardless of which package you choose, follow these simple dos and don’ts to ensure a truly memorable experience!

Do: Visit Santa Barbara Wine County.

Whether you live in California or intend to travel all the way from the East Coast—when planning a trip to the wineries of the Golden State, don’t forget to add Santa Barbara Wine County to your list!

 

Unlike the pricey, modern vineyards of Napa Valley, Santa Barbara’s historic viticulture offers a unique story told and retold by Danish immigrants. Explore the stunning wine region located in the heart of Santa Ynez Valley, and take a walk down the “sunny fields” of Little Denmark, known widely as Solvang!
