The modern history of the Santa Ynez Valley is told through horses and grapes. We have partnered with local equestrian outfit Vino Vaqueros to create a tour that blends vineyard walks and amiable, four-legged tour guides. Here is your chance to explore wine country at a saunter.
We will escort you to the Estelle Ranch & Vineyard in the heart of Santa Ynez, where you will be led at a leisurely pace through their ranch and vineyard on horseback. Upon your return, you will dismount your horse, climb aboard your tour vehicle, and venture further into wine country. Your knowledgeable guide will help you pick the ideal wineries for your tastes and will prepare your picnic lunch with a vineyard view.
