Malibu Wine Safari ūü¶íūüć∑


Nestled in the mountains of Malibu lies a beautiful vineyard in¬†Saddlerock¬†Ranch. ¬†This unique estate is also home to exotic animals which are¬†spread throughout the 1,100 acres of¬†rolling hills enclosed with¬†white picket fences¬†¬† From the moment I jumped up on their large open air custom safari vehicle for the tour, I knew I was in for a¬†fun¬†ride.¬† You‚Äôll make several great stops to take in the scenery, taste¬†local wines and get up close and personal with exotic animals like zebras, camels, alpaca, bison along with the local celebrity¬†‚ÄúStanley‚ÄĚ the giraffe ūü¶í who starred in Hangover¬†3. ¬†He‚Äôs so friendly and ate right¬†out of the palm of my hand. ¬†The property is owned by the Semler¬†family and their original dream was to farm avocados but they kept freezing over¬†so in 1994 they decide to take a risk and grow grapes. ¬†This turned out to be¬†a winning¬†prospect for them¬†as they now have many¬†wonderful red and whites for both private and public consumption¬†. As an¬†animal and wine lover, I had the time of my life at Malibu Wine Safari and a¬†return visit is definitely in order!¬†
