Uber Wine 2019 – How much does Uber Wine cost?

What is UberWine?

UberWINE is a new program being introduced by Uber in Santa Barbara, California, which lets riders request a specialized Uber driver who will take them on a tour of the region’s famous wine country.

How does Uber Wine work?

UberWine overcomes one of the major obstacles of visiting Santa Barabara’s world famous wine country — namely, it was impossible to drive through the area and sample wines, at your leisure, without having a dedicated driver who was willing to tour the region but not drink.

Now, Uber riders are able to conveniently request a personal driver who will stay with passengers all day, allowing them to enjoy Santa Barbara’s wine tasting scene for as long as they want.

UberWINE offers two vehicle options:

  • WINE — an uberX vehicle seating up to 4 riders
  • WINEXL — an uberXL vehicle seating up to 6 riders

Where is UberWINE operating?

When you’re in Santa Barbara, simply request WINE or WINEXL, and a driver will requested. Set your own itinerary and decide where you’ll want to go.

Feel free to leave belonging in the car — your UberWINE vehicle is your personal vehicle for the day. Continually enter new location into your Uber App, and the driver will simply head to the next location of your choice.

    Any driver that sticks around for $.29/min (minus Uber’s 25% commission) while you spend 1-1.5 hours in a winery is out of his d*mn mind… $10/hr waiting when they could easily make $20+ driving individual trips. UberWine is a HORRIBLE option for drivers.
