  • Steven was our Host/Driver for the day. He was tremendous as he transported us to the Santa Barbara wine country. Steven’s knowledge of the area, wineries and wine varietals were very impressive. We were able to walk among the grape vines, while being educated about the vineyards and wine growing process. The 3 tasting venues we experienced were all unique to the wine they craft. Beautiful views, welcoming owners and amazing wines. The properties we visited were all small production wineries, and the quality of the wines were outstanding We were even lucky enough to witness a rocket launch from the nearby AFB. This is the best way to visit and taste in the Santa Barbara area and we can’t wait until we return. Leave the driving and worries to Sustainable Wine Tours and enjoy the experience.
  • We highly recommend this company! My husband and I booked a tour with them for our minimoon and were so impressed! Our tour guide, Scott, went above and beyond to make the experience truly memorable and personal. He was so accommodating when we needed to change our pick up location at the last minute. We loved meeting all the talented winemakers on our tour and getting such a hands on and up close look at how wine in this region is produced. We also were able to meet some other incredible guests which made the tour even more memorable. The small group and private tastings made this tour one of a kind. This company truly stands out.
  • BEST WINE TOUR EVER! I highly recommend Scott and Sustainable Wine Tours! We had a fabulous day visiting 3 small local wineries. Scott took great care of us making sure our water bottles were full and served a delicious lunch! He shared his knowledge of the wine country and surrounding area! The winemakers poured our wine , shared their “stories” and love of wine with us. Each were happy to answer our questions, no matter how “novice” they may have been! You will have a memorable day!
  • We went to three different wineries in beautiful settings and got to meet and talk with the owners/winemakers. All three offered a wealth of information about wine growing and wine making. They were passionate about their wines and were more than happy to entertain questions. All of the wines that we tasted at each site were excellent. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to learn more about wines. You will not be disappointed.
  • What an extraordinary adventure yesterday on Scott’s sustainable wine tour! He curated the mix of personalities, vineyards and of course styles of wine to perfection. These were wineries not generally open to the public so we were able to enjoy the vintners in a more intimate way. His background as a Sommelier came into play whenever asked a question regarding wines as he drove us along in the comfort of his luxury van. His goal is towards making each tour an experience and he certainly achieved that for me! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his services to anyone interested in gaining more ground into the history, mysteries and delights of the wine industry here in Santa Barbara.
