Take A Wine And Bike Tour Through A Vineyard In The Mountains Of Malibu

Ashlyn Davis

Sip and cycle your way through some gorgeous scenery.

Wine and a set of wheels might be the best possible way to discover the breathtaking Santa Monica Mountains while enjoying the fruits of the land. Hop on a beautiful, retro-colored electric-assist bike and ride through the scenery of Saddlerock Ranch with the wind in your hair (if you’re a fast pedaler) and warm California sunshine on your skin.

Beyond this sensory feast, the acres of land holds a rich and fascinating 300-year history. It’s also home to a range of exotic animals like zebra, camel, giraffe, llama, alpaca, yak, highland cows, and more. When lockdown ends you’ll be able to continue the adventure with a wine safari if you’re up to it.

You’ll stop along the way to take in the most picturesque vistas around Saddlerock’s vineyard and all the quirky art installations dotted around the landscape, including old wagons, an airstream trailer, and a wooden door that opens up to the heavens. Of course, you’ll need something to quench your thirst as you coast through the winding paths—like a selection of two red and white wines. But don’t worry if you’re not much a drinker, you’ll still have a range of non-alcoholic refreshments to sip on instead.

On the other hand, if your tasting worked up an appetite to explore more fruits of the land you can head to the beautiful Malibu Wines & Beer Garden in West Hills. While you won’t be able to soak up the experience at the shaded al fresco seating area just yet, you can head beyond the stone archways and grab a bottle or two to-go. All the red and white wines from your tour will be on offer along with a range of local wines and beer to enjoy.

malibu wine bike tour

The drive in the safari truck was a bumpy uphill route that took us around the vineyard. Looking around, we saw the Malibu skyline, a lake, and vineyards. A few minutes later, with some informative commentary, we arrived at the destination. At the bottom of the other side of the hill was a line of electric bikes waiting for us. The bikes being electric took out pedaling difficulty and made it as easy as pushing a button. We adjusted the bikes for ourselves and turned them on. The tour guide was a friendly man wearing a pumpkin t-shirt, appropriately so, because it was Halloween.

We got the run-down on how to use the electric bikes and pushed the button to go. Weather bike route took us through the ranch. We arrived at a famous cliff area for the giant yellow frame that created a photo for itself. We took pictures and stared off at the cliff’s edge in awe of the daylight skyline. Getting back onto the bikes, we rode to an open garden with everything from cornhole, giant Jenga, and an acre of different kinds of flowers. The oversized swing chair was a great scenic photo with lavender in the background.

Once more, we rode away on the bikes. Going up the final hill leads to one of the best surprises. We could see a stable full of horses, donkeys, and even a very famous giraffe in the distance. This 17-foot tall giraffe is known as Stanley. He has since retired from his work in Hollywood for being too tall to transport. After waving goodbye to Stanley, we went for our last stretch on the bikes. Our guide got off his bike and took action-photos of everyone riding with their groups. The photos came out great, and they make for the perfect gift to share from the bike tour.

We returned to the safari truck that took us further up the vineyard hills where portable tasting rooms were waiting for us. We were able to sample four different kinds of wine that each tasted amazing. On the next hill, we were able to see a wedding taking place, giving us a drink and a show. It was a beautiful sight that made our drinks even better. With each tasting, we received local information about the vineyard and the wine-making process.

The first wine we drank was a Rosé of Grenache – pink, sweet, and a great choice to start. The second wine we tasted was a Chardonnay. This white wine, in my personal opinion, is my favorite of the selection. We changed pace with going with a Cabernet Sauvignons that tasted perfect with a perfect balance of sweet, oaky, and dry. The final tasting was of a more dry Sangiovese and paired wonderfully with the piece of dark chocolate given to us. We were happy to hear that every tour has a different wine selection, in case we want to come back and try more. The wine, the conversation, and skyline views, was the perfect finale for this wine tour.

After our tastings, the safari truck took us back to the first open field we parked in.

Wine tastings are always glamorous and exciting because of the wine. The once Malibu Safari Tour is now the Malibu Bike Tour, and we really enjoyed it. Adding bike riding to the tour has become a whole new memorable experience full of fun. We were told that every tour is different, with new routes through the ranch to take. With the season changing to cooler weather, now is the best time to visit. We would recommend the Malibu Bike Tour to anyone who loves wine, the outdoors, and experiencing new exciting adventures.

In the heart of sunny Arcadia, California, nestled amidst the breathtaking San Gabriel Mountains, lies Santa Anita Park—a beacon of excitement and luxury in the realm of Thoroughbred racing. While the park itself is a well-known destination, its hidden treasures remain largely undiscovered by many—an array of exclusive rooms and venues that evoke the clandestine allure of a speakeasy.   But what exactly is a speakeasy, you may ask? For those of you who don’t know, let’s journey back to the Prohibition era of the 1920s in the United States. It was a time when the sale, manufacture, and transportation […]

Top Wine Tasting Experiences in Malibu for 2024

For Winetravelers keen on wine and waves, Malibu is the place to go. What’s more, you’ll have opportunities for celebrity spotting, surfing, beachcombing, hiking, cycling, yoga, and of course wine tasting.

If you’re picturing vineyards and wineries along the beach, you’re in for a surprise. Tucked away in the Santa Monica Mountains between the Pacific Ocean and the Mulholland Highway lies the Malibu Coast AVA. This 46 miles long and eight miles wide terrain rises to above 3000 feet and is home to 198 acres of vineyards and 52 vignerons. While the Woolsey Fire burned many of Malibu’s vineyards, this is still a robust and beautiful wine touring area.

The Malibu Coast was granted AVA status in 2014, but wine grapes have grown in the area since 1824. Interestingly enough, before Prohibition, Los Angeles County was California’s largest wine producer. The first contemporary vineyard was planted in 1985 by restaurateur Michael McCarty, under one of California’s most respected wine professionals, Dick Graff of Monterey’s Chalone Vineyard.

Where to go wine tasting in Malibu California

Fun Fact: Much of the Malibu AVA sits on highly coveted red lava soil formations. This is similar to deposits on the Sonoma Coast, making the soils of the two regions nearly identical.

Only recently has Los Angeles County permitted the combination of vineyards and wineries, so “at the vineyard” tasting rooms are relatively few. Compared to larger California wine regions like Napa or even Santa Ynez, you can’t really bike from one winery to another or walk through the front door of a Malibu winery’ tasting room.

In fact, a Malibu winery is not necessarily the best place to sample Malibu wines. Instead of driving to visit the handful that does, head to Cornell Winery & Tasting Room , an Old West-themed wine bar on Mulholland Highway. Although initially planned as a winery, zoning laws couldn’t be changed, so it’s a retail and wine tasting hub featuring almost all wines in the Malibu wine scene. Here you can order Malibu wine tasting flights, wine by the glass, or purchase a bottle of wine to take away. You can also check in to the neighboring Old Place Restaurant next to Cornell, a legendary Malibu restaurant hangout.

As Malibu evolves from celebrity sand and surf local into an A-list wine region, you don’t have to look far for activities to pair with its wines. Hiking, cycling, yoga, al-fresco movie-going, and of course, beachfront wine tasting are all part of Malibu wine country’s one-of-a-kind personality.

Travel Logistics

Flying into LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) is your best bet to get as close to Malibu as possible. You can browse current flight deals on Kayak , but book soon as prices are rising quickly in 2022. Rent a car , and then make the convenient 15-minute drive on the N9 highway for the best way to discover Malibu Wine Country. It connects US 101 at Malibu Junction in Agoura Hills and ends at California SR 1 ( Pacific Coast Hwy ) in the Point Dume region of Malibu. At Approximately its midpoint, the N9 intersects The Mullohalland HWY; this is the heart of the Malibu Coast AVA, and from here, you can start exploring.

Looking for a hotel?  For one of the most upscale and immersive experiences in the Malibu region, stay at the opulent yet relaxed Calamigos Guest Ranch and Beach Club .  It’s conveniently located near both the mountains, beaches, vineyards, and one of the drop off / pick up points for one of our favorite wine tour operators we mention below.

some highlights from clients

Our guide, Roger was super fun,  and energetic. The mountain bike experience was phenomenal and challenging but extremely worth it. I would suggest this experience to anyone visiting. You won't be disappointed.

Rock N Rope (Malibu Bike Guide) is a must do for anyone looking to get an amazing outdoor experience. Roger is amazing and will make you feel comfortable during the entire time! The way he educates you throughout makes you appreciate the wonder of the great outdoors!

There's who you are and what you do Rock N Rope (Malibu Bike Guide) is the rare example of something who's exemplary in both. The care, guidance, and fun is unmatched. My highest rec!

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this e-mtb work.

These electric assisted mountain bikes have a small motor under the frame where the cranks are. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery powers the motor. The motor only provides power when you are pedaling. It adds power to each of your pedal strokes, so it feels like pedaling a normal bike, except with supercharged legs.

what is the TOUR TIME?

The tour time depends on the trails you want to take, and the speed of the riders in your group. It can run from 2-3 hours total.

are there age or other requirements?

Minimum height required is 5' because that's the size of the smallest bike. It can be a kid or an adult, as long as they meet the height requirements. We will ask for your height and weight on the booking form in order to properly adjust the bike's suspension beforehand.

How far will we go?

It will depend on your group's experience and ride goals. We could cover up to 23 miles in 3 hours. This covers most of the easy trails and fire roads of the park. Battery will last another 10 miles after the ride, so no reason to worry about running out of battery during the ride.

How hard is the ride?

Your very experienced and knowledgeable guide will tailor a ride that fits your ability, experience and goals. You can expect to learn and improve a lot during your ride, while having fun!

what is included?

We provide all safety gear: knee and elbow pads, helmet and gloves. And rental of this amazing bike you will want to take home with you (sorry, we don't sell them!)

Wine Tasting in a Classic VW Bus

The VW Bus tour is a fantastic way to experience the ranch and the Malibu area, including nearby wineries. 

This tour is unlike any other, so don’t miss the opportunity to ride in this fun and stylish vehicle and drink wine while the sun shines! *Must book minimum of 6 guests*

per vehicle

Cruise malibu's wineries in style on our classic vw bus wine tasting tour.

Our fleet of VW busses are available in fun vintage colors—classic teal, bright sunshine yellow and more. These vehicles are known as the “first van” and were once a symbol of protest and counterculture in the 60s and 70s, often transporting marginalized members of society to rallies and polling stations during times of great political and cultural upheaval. 

Then, they became trendy in California because of their usefulness to campers and outdoor enthusiasts, who enjoyed the simple styling and roomy interior that made transporting people and equipment easy.

Now, they have a new purpose– transporting wine lovers at Malibu Wine Tours who are looking to have a fabulous day in Malibu wine county and try some of the most outstanding vintages Malibu has to offer!

Experience Malibu Wineries on our VW bus tour

Embark on a journey with up to five friends or family members, chauffeured through the scenic vistas of Saddlerock Ranch . Begin your day with a stop for delightful wine tasting experiences before venturing into the captivating Malibu Canyon. Here, you’ll explore another remarkable Malibu winery, capturing beachside photos, grooving to fun tunes on the vintage VW bus’s radio, and sharing laughter with our lively and passionate tour guide.

Continuing through the winding Malibu canyons, you’ll arrive at another nearby winery. Here, immerse yourself in guided tastings led by knowledgeable wine experts, with opportunities to acquire additional bottles of your favorites.

To cap off your day, your tour guide will escort you to a picturesque beach overlook for yet another tasting, complemented by delightful chocolates, all against a backdrop of breathtaking views. With an in-depth understanding of Malibu’s history and the region, your tour guide ensures a lively and engaging experience throughout your wine tasting tour. Come, discover Malibu’s wineries the classic VW way!

While on this VW wine tour, you’ll uncover hidden gems within Saddlerock Ranch and savor a variety of exquisite beverages crafted by the vineyards on the estate, complete with a delectable cheese charcuterie board.

  • Ride in style in a cool, vintage VW Bus, which has kept its classic charm.
  • Taste excellent food and wine both on the property, and at another local winery.
  • Explore Saddlerock Ranch and the surrounding Malibu area.
  • Capture fun and memorable memories and photos at beautiful photo ops on the ranch, at other wineries, and the beach.
  • Listen to your favorite music on the radio, with the ability to plug your phone into the AUX cord and personalize your listening experience.
  • Purchase bonus bottles of wine and tastings to take home or to enjoy on the tour.
  • Sightsee around Malibu, and enjoy the combination of wilderness, beach life and public areas that make Malibu so fabulous.

This tour involves two-to-three stops on the property to enjoy some of Saddlerock Ranch’s best views and most entertaining stops, with an opportunity to eat a cheese and charcuterie board and taste some beverages at our beautiful Garden event space.

Afterward, the tour goes out onto the roads to visit other wineries that will have the option to purchase food, tastings, and bottles of wine. These items are not included in the tour price, and all purchases at other wineries go directly to the wineries themselves.

The tour will conclude after some sightseeing around Malibu and stops to take pictures by the beach or other possible overlooks. 

Meeting times will be on the hour or the half-hour at the check-in cabin at 32111 Mulholland Hwy, Malibu, CA. The check-in cabin is found down the wooden steps in the parking lot. Tours end either in the parking lot where you first arrived or at a location requested by guests and agreed upon by the tour guide, such as at a nearby restaurant. The tour will end approximately three hours after beginning.

No pets allowed.

If the windows are down and the top is open, the VW bus can be WINDY, so dress accordingly.

Frequently Asked Questions

The VW Bus Tour will take approximately 3 hours and includes 2-3 stops.

We recommend wearing comfortable clothing, closed toed shoes, and bringing a jacket just in case! It is a very windy tour. Also, it gets pretty sunny up in the mountains, so a hat is always a good idea, but make sure it fits tightly so it won’t blow away!

We do not allow guests under 21 on the VW Bus Tour. 

No. Additional tastings must be paid directly to the winery. They are not included but are available for purchase upon arrival.
