What We Do

Gourmet Wine Getaways (GWG) has been creating unique, fun and affordable wine tasting dinners and wine & appetizer events throughout the Greater Los Angeles area for over 20 years. We also take groups of wine enthusiasts on private wine tasting trips up to Santa Barbara County wine country. Join us as we take you ‘backstage’ to uncover the secret life of wine in some of the Central Coast’s most interesting wineries.

Become part of our growing GWG family! Our guests range from first-time tasters to seasoned aficionados. Together we celebrate great food, memorable wines and the joy of talking wine & food in a relaxed conducive setting. Come alone, come as a couple, come as a group – you will surely leave with new wine-loving friends!

Each Gourmet Wine Getaways event is distinctive as we explore the art, the science and the never-ending supply of great wines and wineries from California, the U.S. and around the world.

Let us make your next special occasion (birthday, anniversary, promotion) even more special with a private wine event or wine tasting trip to Santa Barbara County Wine Country.
