In our industry, groups of more than 10 guests are considered a “large group” and wineries charge much more based on this. Some of the reasons include having to dedicate staff to the group, a lower per-visitor purchase ratio and site fees. We have the expertise and relationships to navigate these obstacles to put together the ideal and affordable package for your group. Whether it is a corporate outing, pre- or post-wedding celebration, a birthday party or a family reunion, we can accommodate your needs. We have handled hundred of groups this size, and for us, it’s fun, as we get to be mini-event planners.
Large-group tours will visit two wineries, and while we also have catering options upon request, using our standard lunch options is both easy and affordable.
We do require a 50-percent deposit to hold your tour, and have a mandatory 14-day cancellation policy.
$225 per person All-Inclusive
Typical pickup times in the Santa Barbara Area are 10am and 10:45am for Santa Ynez Valley Pick ups. We include an expert tour host with fascinating knowledge about local history, winemaking, geography, and what makes our wine country so special. We provide a delicious picnic lunch sourced locally with no preservatives as organic as possible and provide plenty of bottled water. We also cover the tasting fees at two wineries (ranging from $25-$50 per person per location) and gratuity. Return Times are 3pm-4pm in the Santa Ynez Valley and 4pm-5pm in Santa Barbara.
Sometimes it’s best to discuss large groups over the phone so we can provide you with the best pricing and itinerary for your special event. Please give us a call at (805) 686-8347.
