My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the private wine tour with Rooted Vine. They offered the convenience of being picked up and dropped off at our Santa Barbara hotel in a comfortable SUV. Along the gorgeous drive into Santa Ynez Valley, Iaon shared his extensive knowledge of everything from the topography of the area to the winemakers. His passion for wine and the bounty of offerings in this area shone through our entire experience. Iaon crafted the perfect tour for our preferences and curiosity, and truly curated a one-of-a-kind experience for us. On top of all this, he was fun to spend the day with! The winery and vineyards we visited provided personalized, friendly service as well as excellent wine! We appreciated the educational component and touring of the grounds, all of which heightened our appreciation of the wine we were tasting. There are not many tours we would repeat, but this is the exception! We would absolutely do another tour with Iaon and crew, knowing each experience would be unique and memorable.

Outstanding and memorable experience! Iaon planned two days of private guided wine tastings for us and we couldn't have been happier and more satisfied. Everything was done to perfection. We visited a total of six wineries and each was different and excellent in their own way. Our tour guide Eyton was really fun to be with and easy to talk to. He went above and beyond to be helpful, by getting us our picnic lunches both days, carrying our cases of wine, and transferring them to our car at the hotel! He even took us to an olive oil tasting because we had extra time. We would not have had access to many of those wineries and wouldn't have been able to find them without Eyton. It was a fantastic, memorable way to celebrate our 24th anniversary. Worth every penny, and we'll definitely use them again the next time we're in the area.

Awesome tour. Rooted Vine was highly recommended by our hotel, and they surpassed expectations.

Iaon was superb. He was friendly. Very talkative about the area and wine. His wine knowledge and ability to explain things was the best we’ve heard.

We were picked up on time in a very clean and spacious SUV.

Felt very safe in the environment from Covid. He wore his mask the whole time, and wore the mask properly over his nose!

The 3 private vineyards we went to were good. The wine and the environments and the servers were perfect.

He also gave us recs for places to go on the following days.

Overall it was a very special day in the Santa Barbara area.

We went on a private tour for six people and had a fantastic time. The tour that the owner Iaon created showcased great wines, beautiful locations and very friendly people. But more than that, it also gave us an excellent insight into both the winemaking process and the winemaking industry in the Central Coast. It was a great day for everyone on the tour; and whether you're a wine enthusiast or just someone who just likes opening a bottle with friends, I'm confident you'll have a great time.

What a great afternoon. Iaon did all the hard work so we could relax and enjoy. Three gorgeous vineyards, umpteen delicious wines. Iaon is very knowledgeable about wine in general, with a keen specialty with Santa Barbara wines. A+ experience.

Wow! What a fantastic tour.
The locations we went to were absolutely beautiful and had extremely friendly tasting room staff. I was glad to see that COVID-19 precautions were taken and happy that we were able to sit and taste outside.
Lunch was great, a lot of options so it might be helpful to take a look at them before the tour.
The private tour was defiantly worth it!
