If you have been following my social media for a while now, you know how many times I have spent lovely days at Malibu Wine Safari! This week, we made another trip there to spend the day on the winery! It is seriously the best place to go for amazing wine, beautiful views, and cute animals! ... animals?!... yes... keep reading :)
Now I know many of you are probably thinking.. what is so special about this winery!? Well.. let me just say that I think this winery nailed it in the concept department! Malibu Wines Safari mixed the adventure and joys of seeing and feeding animals all while tasting many different wines (hence the name "Malibu Wine Safari"). It is literally a safari through the Malibu mountains on 1100 acres of land! You pass through wedding venue areas, really cool antiques, grape vines, gorgeous look out spots... and of course animals!
One animal in particular you can book a tour to see is Stanley (insta: @a_giraffe_named_stanley). Yes, Stanley is an 18ft giraffe who lives on the property, and is very very special! He's actually a famous giraffe that has grown up in the Hollywood scene staring in The Hangover Part 3, and doing many commercials for companies such as Verizon and Doritos. Anyways, he is a super friendly giraffe that you get the opportunity to get up close and personal, feed, pet, and take fun photos with! Definitely a highlight and an experience like no other!
Other than the zebras, lamas, horses and camel... my other favourite part is getting to see all the amazing antiques the owner has collected over the years and displayed on the property! From airstreams, to Volks Wagon vans, to old doors and carousels, there is always something beautiful and special to see!
In between all the special finds we stopped at stunning locations to sip some wines! We tried three reds, and three whites! This was a great opportunity to discover new wines, their characteristics, and flavors! Also to finally figured out what "dry" wine means! haha... now I know! And in case you're wondering "dry" wine leaves a weird sticky dry feeling on your tongue. Maybe that should have been obvious...but I never knew.
My favourite was the sweet riesling! So so good! (btw in the background of this photo below is a little wedding venue) .. cute right?!
I want to start sharing some of my favourite places in LA, just incase you are ever thinking about coming to California... I want to let you in on all the hidden gems :) This is for sure one of those special places hidden in the mountains!
Anyways, It is always an amazing day coming to Malibu Wine Safari! Sunshine, views, animals & wine!! That's my kind of day!
