Rebecca “Becca” Kufrin from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette joined Santa Barbara Wine Country Tours recently. Her and fiancé Garrett Yrigoyen came along to visit the best wineries in Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Valley. We took them to some of our favorite wineries, enjoyed a picnic lunch, and explored the cute Danish town of Solvang. You can do the exact same tour as we often take winery requests and are happy to cater to your choices!

Taking a wine tour to the Santa Barbara wineries is a great option as all of the details are handled for you! The price includes: tasting fees, a picnic lunch, pick up and drop off from your accommodations (no worrying about a designated driver!). Our friendly host picks up and drops off at any accommodation in Santa Barbara.
Planning for a couple, a group of friends, or even a bachelorette party? We can help make your experience to be exactly what you’re looking for to visit Santa Barbara wineries. There’s so many great options, therefore we’ve curated a list of the wineries we took Becca and Garrett to:
Located just 35-minutes north of Santa Barbara, Sunstone seemingly transports visitors to the Provençal French countryside.
Named after the vineyard estate’s exposed, sun-dappled shale and stones, Sunstone is a tranquil retreat where you can enjoy a glass of wine in the lavender and rosemary-filled courtyard or in the stone barrel-aging caves. Eat lunch at the picnic tables shaded by olive and oak trees. Guests on our tour often receive a private wine-tasting experience in a special room on the property.
Our absolute favorite place to sit down outside with a glass of wine
We can’t say enough about Vincent. You have to sit on the patio, when you look up you are fully immersed in the grapevines and wine country just doesn’t get as good as this, making this one of our favorite wineries. Take a walk down their hallway for some interesting history as well.
A hidden gem tucked away in the hills of Solvang.
Enjoy the tranquility of Rusack’s outside patio overlooking the vineyard shaded by oak trees. They even have a vineyard out on Catalina Island of Channel Islands National Park, making it the perfect winery to visit for our Channel Islands lovers.
These are just a few of our favorite Santa Barbara Wineries amongst several incredible wineries and vineyards to explore. Come out on a tour and see for yourself what the beautiful Santa Barbara wineries and Santa Ynez Valley Wine Country have to offer. We can curate an experience just like Becca Kufrin and Garrett’s.
