Do Mother’s Day At Malibu Wine Safaris With Patrice Majorie!By Delaina Dixon | May 1, 2019 | Lifestyle
Our LA Gal Patrice Majorie finds an incredible gift idea for Mother’s Day 2019!
With MotherΓÇÖs Day just around the corner, I thought now would be the perfect time to start thinking about gift ideas for mama. How about a wine tour?
I absolutely LOVE a nice wine tour. Everything about the whole experience just makes me feel so happy, alive and carefree. Last April I went to Napa Valley for the first time and spent three full days touring, tasting and exploring.
This spring, my mom was in town and I wanted to share a wine tasting experience with her, but I wanted to remain local to SoCal. I heard so many great things about the Malibu Wine Safaris and I thought this would be a great treat for the both of us.
Malibu Wine Safaris offers a variety of different tours to suit your preference. My mom and I booked the Giraffe Safari Tour, which includes 105 minutes of six wine tastings: 2 whites, 1 sparking ros├⌐, and 3 reds. It also includes meeting exotic animals, eating complimentary crackers and spreads, and feeding the Hollywood star, Stanley The Giraffe.
The tour takes place on Saddle Rock Ranch in Malibu and it is absolutely stunning! We were lead by to lovely tour guides, Mitch & Ruby. There were about 16 guests on our tour truck and we all drove around the ranch sipping and exploring together. The weather was gorgeous with clear blue skies and just the right amount of breeze in the air — the perfect amount of sun for an outdoor wine tour!
On our first stop, we tasted three different wines; a Sparkling Ros├⌐, a Sauvignon Blanc and a Pinot Grigio. My mom and I both enjoyed the sparkling ros├⌐ the most. As a guest on the ranch, the guides allow about 15-20 minutes to enjoy some relaxation time to sip on wine, take pictures, enjoy the scenery and come back for seconds, of course.
