Wild wine tasting with Malibu Wine Safaris.

A visit to Saddlerock Ranch with Malibu Wine Safaris was one of the best experiences during my time in LA.We joined the Explorer Giraffe Safari, this is a wine tasting gone wild! As well as enjoying the area’s best wines, you get to meet the wildlife on the ranch. We got to feed llamas, zebras, yaks and alpacas – all of which have amazing names. From Llama del Ray and Kendrik Llama to Justin Zeiber!You explore the ranch and vineyards in an open air safari vehicle! The tour includes two wine tasting stops where you can sample the delicious local wines, trying three reds and three whites in the picturesque surroundings. Of course, the highlight of the day is meeting Stanley the Giraffe! He’s a true Hollywood star and  we got to feed him lots of lettuce – which he couldn’t get enough of. He always has time to take some selfies with his fans and definitely knows how to work the camera angles haha!Malibu Wine Safari

  1. Wine trails are one thing but Wine mixed with Safari? That’s new and I must say that it is an interesting idea. They also seem to have collected a lot of exotic animals. Hope they are taken care of well.

    1. Hi Jitaditya,

      The animals certainly are well looked after – they are mostly rescue animals and now have a whole ranch to live on.
      It’s a unique tour and definitely one to check out if you like wine and beautiful Californian scenery 🙂
