Rooted Vine Tours offers several variations of tours and services, from the Santa Barbara Wine Country Tour with guided tours, tastings, a gourmet picnic lunch, and door-to-door transportation at as many as four wineries, to private wine tours, exclusive wine tours with wine concierge, and even hot air balloon flights with champagne and breakfast. 


Ticket prices for Rooted Vine Tours depend on which tour you decide to take. The Santa Barbara Wine Country Tour is priced at $140.00 per person. Private wine tours, which require a minimum of two people, cost $240.00 per person. Exclusive wine tours and morning hot air balloon flights are priced at $350.00 per person. And transportation services without a tour cost $100.00 per hour per vehicle, with a six-hour minimum. 


Tour times vary based on the tour. Pickups for morning hot air balloon flights begin at 6:30am, with the flight time lasting around 45-50 minutes and returning to Santa Barbara by 10:30am. The Santa Barbara Wine Country Tour has pickups beginning in Santa Barbara at 10:30am and in the Santa Ynez area at 11:30am, with tours lasting about six hours.  


Private and exclusive wine tours and transportation services can be customized to your schedule, though the company recommends pickup times for 10:30am in Santa Barbara and 11:00am in Santa Ynez, as most wineries open between 10:00am and 11:00am and close between 4:00pm and 5:00pm. It’s also recommended that you call ahead to the wineries you want to visit, as some close early for special events or require reservations for five or more people.
