Safari Wine Adventure


An Extraordinary Tour and Tasting for Wine Enthusiasts

Experience a wine adventure like none other! Tour our 210-acre Deer Park Ranch while enjoying a delicious gourmet picnic and bag “The Big 6” Lester Estate Wines.

Climb aboard the Ranch Rover

Meet at our 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 an experience beyond extraordinary.

Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views

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 as 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.

Safari Wine Adventures are offered the first two Saturdays of each month at 1p.m. Cost is $75 per person.  Advance reservations required.
