Price: $149 Per Person

Escape for the day to the Santa Ynez Valley, the secluded region of rolling hills dotted with horse ranches, vineyards, olive trees, Scrub oak, and early California-style architecture. Enjoy an included boxed lunch, as well as an opportunity to pick your own blueberries (for an additional fee on-site) at a 16-acre u-pick berry farm nestled in-between rolling hills of majestic oak trees. Recognized as one of the best u-pick farms in the country by USA Today, the farm features a farm store where you can purchase freshly picked berries, stone fruit and jams. This afternoon we’ll continue to a working lavender farm and learn how the lavender is grown, harvested and distilled into an oil known for its culinary and healing qualities. The lavender shop here sells a variety of lavender products including essential oils, lotions, soaps, sachets, spices, tea, honey, scone mix and more. Later, we’ll arrive in Los Olivos, the charming and historic town tucked into the picturesque Santa Ynez Valley. At a family-owned tasting room in town we’ll enjoy an included wine tasting paired with wine-infused cupcakes! Featuring a 1940s feel (you can imagine Jimmy Stewart enjoying a vintage), the winery parlays humor and family tradition into their wines with loving names like “Father”, “Son”, “Mother” and “1945″ (when their grandparents married). Your “flight” of 6 mini cupcakes – all prepared on the premises – will include three vanilla-based cupcakes and three chocolate-based cupcakes with flavors such as Cherry Vanilla Merlot, Blueberry Lemon Chardonnay and Chocolate Blackberry Syrah (chocolate cake infused with Syrah, filled with dark chocolate Belgium fudge and topped with blackberry frosting and a wine-soaked blackberry rolled in sugar crystals). Regardless of the flavors featured, they’re sure to pair well with the flight of 6 wines (white and red) paired with them. While this is the time of year that lavender is generally in bloom and blueberries are ready for picking, the duration and intensity of lavender blooms and blueberry ripeness varies from year to year and are never guaranteed.
To ensure a healthy and enjoyable travel experience for our guests, this tour will operate with additional health and safety measures in place.
