With its scenic rolling vineyards nestled beautifully in the Santa Ynez Mountains, the Santa Ynez Valley might be the most popular tours for our Santa Barbara limo clients and others. Besides having more wineries than other Southern California wine-regions, these vineyards might also be the most picturesque vineyards in SoCal. The wines and wineries of this valley, which boasts over seventy wineries and wine-tasting rooms, are becoming more popular by each vintage. Having more wineries than any other place in Santa Barbara County, Santa Ynez wine tours to wineries such as Bridlewood, Firestone and Sunstone have never been more popular. This valley of just about 20,000 people has for long established its name as “Southern California’s best wine country.” To find your ideal wineries, research them online or give our limousine services a call for more information. Tasting locations here vary significantly, from outdoor tastings by the vineyards to indoors by the fireplace. There are also various wineries here serving dinner, although the favorite activity for many ordering limos for rent are picnicking. Great wineries for outdoor tastings and picnicking includes Bridlewood Estate Winery, Sunstone Vineyards & Winery, as well as Gainey Vineyard. These are all highly popular wine-tour destinations and places we could absolutely recommend for the signature tastings experience. Combine your tour to the vineyards with a nice meal at Brother’s Restaurant At the Red or S.Y. Kitchen, two great choices for dining. The quaint small-town of Los Olivos is an experience of itself, and should be added to any trip with limousine services in this area. In fact, we often transport international tourists arriving at LAX and booking LAX sedan vehicles to spend a few days here upon arriving in LA. A party bus rental is common for larger groups.

Movie Wine Tours
Did you know that numerous movies and TV shows have been filmed in the Southern California wine country?
On our Santa Ynez wine tours you can follow in the footsteps of Miles Raymond (Paul Giamatti) and Jack Cole (Thomas Haden Church) in the film Sideways (2004). Some popular stops for Sideways themed cinematic tours of Santa Ynez include for example Kalyra Winery, where they meet Stephanie. Other stops include Firestone Winery, where they sneak from a boring lecture, and the Foxen Winery, where Jack and Miles fill up some glasses. Besides this movie, Firestone Winery has also appeared in the episode “Mr. Monk Gets Drunk” in the TV-series Monk (2005). In this episode we can see Monk visiting the fictive Allaccano Winery, which actually is a combination of the Crossroads Estate and Firestone Vineyard, two popular vineyards for Santa Ynez wine tours. Many cinematic tours by limo here goes to destinations featured in the movie Return to Mayberry (1986). Some of the scenes from the movie filmed here includes the courthouse scenes, Opie’s office, a church and cemetery, a flagpole by a wine-tasting room, and more. Santa Ynez is also featured in Violet (2013), Generation Cap (2008), Greener Mountains (2005), and many more TV-series and films. So why not jump in a Santa Barbara limo and head up the mountains for movie wine tours of Santa Ynez?
