      About this Santa Barbara, California Tour

      Forget France. Take a pass on Italy. You have a chance to experience the "American Riviera," also known as Santa Barbara, under the wing of a friendly local tour guide. Your guide is a bona fide expert on the city, its history and culture, and the affluent lifestyle that has captivated the nation. So if you have a question, go ahead and ask. You'll soon know Santa Barbara like your own hometown.

      Cheers! Whether you're a casual sipper or self-proclaimed snob, you're going to love the Wine Collection of El Paseo. From Jamie Slone Wines' limited production, premium Red Blends, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc to Chardonnay.Then there’s Au Bon Climat's internationally acclaimed, perfectly balanced Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs and Margerum Wine Company's  handcrafted varietals. And let’s not forget estate-grown gems from Grassini Family Vineyards and Happy Canyon Vineyard. 

      Of course, you don't want all that good wine swishing around an empty belly. So be sure to indulge your appetite at this tour's two jet-setting culinary stops. Hoffmann Brat Haus is home to nearly every imaginable style of that famed German sausage, bratwurst. You'll also nibble on local and imported cheeses at C'est Cheese, a French-style fromagerie. 

      But you won't just C'est Cheese on this tour. You'll also say cheese with stops at the most scenic spots around Santa Barbara's prestigious Presidio neighborhood. Along the way, you'll also pick up expert tips on taking masterful snaps, right on your smartphone. So sip the region's wines. Savor its cuisine. Learn the rich history. And visually capture it like a pro. Because it's nothing less than the best for you in the American Riviera.

      Santa Barbara gets sideways

      Locations in and around Santa Barbara's wine country played home to the 2004 indie film Sideways. In it, one of the lead characterstalks up Pinot Noir in one scene and bashes Merlot in another. During the holiday season that followed the movie's release, sales of Pinot Noir saw a 20% boost over the previous year and Merlot revenues took a dramatic hit. Let's all raise a glass of our favorite red to reality going sideways.
