Malibu Wine Hikes is a small business offering a unique and educational Californian experience in the hills of Malibu. A short drive from the ocean takes you to Saddlerock Ranch, where guests get to visit with Stanley the Giraffe and his exotic animal friends, get a glimpse into a working ranch and the Semler Estate Vineyard, enjoy incredible views, explore Chumash cave paintings, and more. The 2-mile loop hike ends with a wine tasting for those over 21 years of age.
Malibu Wine Hikes teams up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation Los Angeles Chapter for an annual fundraiser. Canceled this year because of COVID-19, the ranch is offering another way to raise funds to help create life-changing wishes for children battling critical illnesses. Hikers can make a donation and receive a painted rock on which they can write inspirational messages, and then place it along the trail to add to the vineyard's whimsical art vibe. All proceeds benefit Make-A Wish.
