We’ve always said the historic Santa Margarita Ranch is a special place, and now more and more folks are starting to take notice–including the San Francisco Chronicle.

Indeed, over the past weekend the Chronicle published Christine Delsol’s magnificent feature story on the ranch, from its rich history to its role in hosting the upcoming main event at Savor The Central Coast (our region’s premier food, wine and lifestyle event).

Along the way, Delsol takes note of Margarita Adventures and our affiliated Ancient Peaks Winery as examples of the ranch’s legacy of hospitality.

She notes, “In addition to a relatively undisturbed swath of early California landscape, Santa Margarita Ranch holds some of the Central Coast’s deepest roots in history…For the most part, the ranch isn’t open to the public unless you attend a wedding or an organization’s special event. Opportunities to visit have expanded over the past several years, though…”

Those opportunities, of course, include our acclaimed zipline canopy tours: “Five zip lines, including the new, 1,800-foot Pinot Express, whisk you over vineyards, oaks, valleys and hilltops for a view the original rancheros never saw. Along the way, guides explain the vineyard’s sustainable practices and the ranch’s natural and cultural history.”

Our thanks go out to the San Francisco Chronicle and Christine Delsol for honoring the ranch with this in-depth story. We hope that you can come out and experience this majestic place for yourself with a zipline canopy tour this fall, or during Savor The Central Coast.
