Go behind the scenes of the largest winery production facility in Santa Barbara Wine Country.
Ever gone to a small "mom and pop" winery tasting room and wondered where they actually make their wine? Or maybe you were in a "big box" store, a supermarket, or a restaurant and wondered how they were able to have their own wine brand?
That's where Bottlest comes in. Bottlest, and our parent company Terravant, are what is known as a "custom crush" winery. That means that while we do have our own wine brands, for the most part we are a “behind the scenes” winery that makes wines and develops brands on behalf of others, including retailers, restaurants, wine clubs, small wineries, and even for individuals like you.
During the Bottlest Winery Tour, you will:
- Craft your own personalized wine online at Bottlest.com.
- Go on a guided tour of our winery production facility, which is the largest in the Santa Ynez Valley/Santa Barbara County and one of the largest in all of California.
- Tour our massive barrel room and sample wine directly from the barrel.
- You will taste 6 (Six) wines along the way- from the bottle, the barrel and the tank- while learning about the "down and dirty" back end of the winemaking process.
Your $25.00 fee includes your custom crafted bottle of wine to take home with you!

"Bottlest is incredible. Definitely do the behind the scenes tour. I can't recommend it enough! It's one thing to see the smaller winery productions but what they are doing here is not to be missed. Allison was my tour guide and she was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and friendly. We even had the opportunity to check out their bottling room which was amazing. Bottlest is a 5 star experience for sure."Malia C. from Victorville, CA
