At Santa Barbara Taste, we specialize in customizing one-of-a-kind tour packages that are perfect for friends looking for a fun day, couples, birthdays, special events, and corporate retreats. We invite you to travel through wine country in luxury and comfort aboard one of the many Mercedes-Benz cars, SUVs or limousines used for our transportation services. We can even arrange helicopter transportation if it tickles your fancy. Our travel options offer an experience like no other on the Central Coast. We can guarantee you will not receive a more personalized experience with anyone else. You are special, and your day with us will be too. Whether you are looking for a fully-customizable wine or beer tour, want to incorporate a horseback ride or cooking class into your day, or have your own itinerary in mind, look no further. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is as local as the wines and we warmly invite you to spend a day tasting with us.
