With Laura as your Tour Guide, come along on a walking tour of Capitola-by-the-Sea, where you will hear about our colorful local history and enjoy a taste of fine California wines!
Tour this charming village on-foot, and discover why people have been coming to vacation in Capitola for almost 150 years. We will walk the hidden streets and paths, and take in amazing views of the Pacific Ocean.
At 2:30 p.m., we begin with a Welcome tasting of a sparkling wine at a lively restaurant/bistro. Then we depart on our walking excursion around the village. The walking portion will last about 1 ½ hours and is 2 1/2 miles long in total.
Learn about the history and architecture of Capitola Village and discover the lesser-known back streets, stairways and viewpoints.
We head downhill and finish our walk in the heart of the Village at a fun wine bar. Here we will enjoy a tasting of a flight of 3 California wines, and also nibble on snacks paired with each wine. You can continue to enjoy your perfect evening by either lingering to enjoy the wine and music, taking a sunset walk on the beach, or having dinner at a local restaurant.
Tours generally run Wednesdays through Sundays, from 2:30 to 5:00 p.m. The cost is $69 per person. To see additional information, view calendar or register, please go to:
