California has so many different things you can do for a celebratory occasion. For our 1-year anniversary, we stuck with what now seems like a tradition and traveled to Malibu to enjoy a day at a winery; Malibu Wines to be exact. I’ve only been to one other winery before visiting here so I was excited to see what this one had to offer. This winery gave me a very memorable experience and here’s a bit about what all happened that day.
So let’s start with my attire. Seeing that this was my 2nd vineyard trip, I wanted to steer away from a long maxi dress or a plaid top with jeans. I don’t know why but those make me think of vineyard attire. So I went with a plain white top with huge ruffled sleeves and floral printed light denim. I purchased both pieces a while back at H&M and decided this look would be perfect for a vineyard. I paired this with camel colored open toe Steve Madden booties and went about my day. The look was multi-purposed for sure; very comfortable for the safari and winery day activities but also easily complimented a scenic ocean view dinner at Geoffrey’s for later that evening.
Okay now back to the actual winery visit. The drive to Malibu itself can be very rewarding. The canyons and mountains are very beautiful to see and often makes me forget that I am even still in California. Upon arrival, we decided to grab kettle popcorn to take on the safari which wasn’t a bad idea. Perfect snack for the road 😊. Along the safari tour we fed llamas, zebras, and even Stanley the Giraffe. Stanley is a fan favorite of the safari and let me get some great pics! There are two stops throughout the duration of the safari. On the first stop you try the white wines. The second stop is saved for the stronger red wines. A huge thank you to our driver for the day that shared the extras from each wine bottle. I think I had two extra glasses for the road. To say we enjoyed our time at Malibu Wine Safaris would be an understatement. The tour guide, driver and amenities offered were all great and I will definitely be back. Especially since I haven’t used my wristband for the 15% discount of a wine purchase. Enjoy the gallery from the safari adventure below.
