In 2018, my mom, dad, brother, and I went to Santa Barbara, California, to attend my cousin's wedding. I just turned twenty-one-year-old and was excited to drink. When looking for activities to do with my family, I discovered Malibu Wine Hikes. Malibu Wine Hikes combines jaw-dropping scenery, exercise, and wine to create an unforgettable. Unfortunately, I did not have the time to visit. However, I have always dreamed of going. I had the opportunity to speak with Haley P., Manager, to learn more about this wine oasis.

Why should someone visit Malibu Wine Hikes? Malibu Wine Hikes offers an experience like no other place can offer, just minutes outside of the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. We offer a variety of tours that allows you to explore different areas of the vineyards, see very well preserved Chumash Native American cave paintings, and visit our organic garden to pick fruits and vegetables. With the different tours that we offer you can experience the ranch in many different ways, so each time you come back there is something new you haven't seen before!

How has the Malibu Wine Hikes adapted in the face of COVID-19? Our company closed for about a month back in March of 2020 when Los Angeles administered the stay at home order. Because we are a completely outdoor experience we were able to open and operate with limitations such as face coverings, limiting group sizes, encouraging touchless payment and tipping, etc.

What are the top sites anyone should see in Malibu and how does the Malibu Wine Hikes add to that experience? Our tasting room, Malibu Wines & Beer Garden, is a great way to continue your wine experience with us after your tour! There are tons of local hot spots around us that our guides like to recommend like Malibu Cafe, Rosenthal, Malibu Farms, and many more!

How has the company shifted its efforts during the pandemic? The safety and wellbeing of our customers and employees have been of the utmost importance to us. We like to partner with different non-profits and during the pandemic we partnered with Make a Wish Foundation, Greater Los Angeles area to help raise money to grant wishes!

What is the future for Malibu Wine Hikes?

Our company has gained a lot of traction during the pandemic as it was one of the only activities that was open and people could do safely in Los Angeles. We are creating more tours and opportunities for guests to experience the vineyard in completely new ways! We are also continuing to partner with different non-profits around the Los Angeles area!
