An Extraordinary Tour and Tasting for Wine Enthusiasts
The Safari Wine Adventure is an exploration of Lester Estate Wines and Deer Park Ranch. Experience a wine adventure like none other. Up to eight guests will tour the 210 acre Deer Park Ranch, located in bucolic Pleasant Valley, while enjoying a delicious gourmet picnic and bag “The Big 6” Lester Estate Wines. Meet at the eclectic Tasting Barn and begin the adventure with a walking tour of the nearby vineyards. From there board Lester Estate Wines’ lovingly restored 1981 Land Rover Defender, affectionately known as “The Ranch Rover” for adventure through Deer Park Ranch. Your tour will include a trip to the top of Elephant Hill where you will enjoy panoramic views of Corralitos, Pleasant Valley and Monterey Bay as well a visit to our serene hidden meadow nestled in the back of the ranch surrounded by mature redwood groves and dotted with sprawling oaks. Keep your eyes open and cameras ready as we typically encounter herds of deer that graze year-round on their namesake ranch.
Comfortable casual attire with a brimmed hat and sturdy walking shoes are highly encouraged. Safari hats and attire are perfectly appropriate (and a lot of fun) but not at all necessary. An ability to have fun, an adventurous attitude, and willingness to explore the possibilities of the wines of the Santa Cruz Mountains are the only requirements of your Safari Wine Adventure at Deer Park Ranch.
Safari Wine Adventures will be offered the first 2 Saturdays of each month at 1 and 3:30 pm and may be booked on our reservation website page at http://deerparkranch.com/contact/. Cost per person is $65.
