Considering a vineyard escape? At Los Angeles County Limousine, we have offered award-winning and top-rated wine-tasting tours throughout Southern California for sixteen years strong. As of 2021, these are our recommendations for the best wine-tasting tour experience in 2021:
LA County’s own wine country is also the site of most limo wine tours. For wine tastings in Malibu, most customers will arrange a stopover at Saddlerock Ranch. Home to acres of vineyards and a private zoo, this gem in the Santa Monica Mountains often offers live entertainment and on-site food trucks. Another Malibu winery, Rosenthal, is scenically placed along the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH). Although this venue lacks the traditional surrounding grape vineyards, it is nonetheless worth the pitstop on Malibu tours by limo. The third recommendation for tastings in Malibu is Cornell on Mulholland Hwy. The devastating 2018 Woolsey Fire led to the destruction of Sip Malibu Grapes, a beloved tasting room visited by limousines for years.
II) Santa Ynez
Santa Ynez Valley consists of a number of wine-tasting venues and wineries north of Solvang, CA. Vineyards in this region, first planted in the 1970s, have begun to give Santa Ynez the wine recognition it deserves. Close to LA and Santa Barbara, wineries here are in high demand for limo tours. The region is particularly known for its Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and White Riesling. Popular vineyards for limousines include Firestone, Carrey, Zaca Mesa, Sunstone, and Roblar. While Firestone is especially known for its Johannisberg Riesling and Gewurztraminer, Zeca Mesa is renowned for its Chardonnay and White Riesling varietals. Overall, the valley is said to be home to California’s best Sauvignon Blanc wine grapes. Limousine rides to picturesque towns such as Los Olivos and Lompoc are ideal ways to begin Santa Ynez wine-tasting voyages.
The hills of Temecula Valley have become the most established wine region in Southern California. Vineyards in the area are centered around an area known as Rancho California, where several vineyards exceed four sq. miles. The valley is renowned for its exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Petite Sirah, and Chardonnay. The largest and pioneering wine-tasting venue is Callaway, which is also the most visited Temecula destination for limo services. Callaway is famous for its world-class white wine varietals, and, as Temecula’s first winery, it is a beloved destination for tastings, weddings, dates, hot air balloon tours, and more. Other wine-tasting rooms and grape farms worth the visit are Baily Vineyard, Palumbo Family Vineyards, Carter Estate, Hart Winery, Ponte, Miramonte, and the Robert Renzoni Vineyards.
