Breakaway Tours & Event Planning
Ask Jill Tweedie why she started Breakaway Tours and Event Planning and she jokingly replies “I needed to support my habit!” founded in 1995 by Tweedie, a Level 1 Sommelier and WSET Level II in Wine & Spirits. Entering their third decade, her passion and energy is as contagious as her commitment to continually reinvent and deliver the finest wine, spirits and culinary experiences on the Central Coast, as their 5-Star rating on TripAdvisor, Yelp & Google can attest. Breakaway Tours deep roots and long term relationships afford their guests access and privileges that no other operator can provide.
Fanatically Obsessed Specialists
That’s how one might describe the Tour & Event Specialists at Breakaway; collectively possessing 35+ years’ experience, they are eager to work their magic for you and yours. Boasting a diverse assortment of services unique to the Central Coast; all tours & events are hand-crafted and personalized to each and every client to the very last detail.
Delicious Fun Made Fresh Daily
Known for their signature “Deliciously Fun, Educational Wine Tours”, Breakaway looks to dispel the myths and intimidation that can follow wine tasting but you won’t find any wine snobs here, maybe a geek or two… but education makes all the difference and is where Breakaway Tours stands out. Their guides are the best in the business and Tweedie describes them as “a cross between a museum guide and a party DJ; after all, its wine not rocket science”. Tweedie adds “Our guests are looking for more than just a DD, they are interested in learning about wine, but still have a good time.” Self-described by Tweedie as, “as much foodies as we are winos,” they source only the top food purveyors in each region for a delectable winery picnic in the most beautiful of settings. All prearranged and set for you and yours.
Private & Shared Group Wine Tours
A Private Wine Tour is your answer if you’re a larger party or have a list of “must have” wineries. Also available in the Santa Barbara wine region, these tours are created to suit your size, ambition, interests and budget. If you’re looking to “drink a little deeper” their in-depth wine experience options abound; consider a seated focused tasting, barrel tasting, food/wine pairing, blending trial or how about a vineyard tour (on foot or in a jeep). Lunch can be a casual picnic or hot, plated and paired with wine in a cave! Vehicles range from SUV’s, passenger vans, mini coaches to full sized tour coaches. Breakaway even has Dog Friendly Wine Tours!
Shared Group Wine Tours are a tremendous value for the individual, couple or small group, enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. Tours are priced by the person with easy on-line booking and are currently available in Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo. They include: door to door service, visiting four wineries, gourmet picnic lunch and winery requests are welcome. No matter the mix of people on-board, they connect and blend in a unique fashion, often exchanging email address and even making dinner plans together.
