Dedicated to Stewardship

Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword, it’s a true force of habitat preservation and resource conservation.

Margarita Vineyard is generating more electricity than it consumes with the installation of two new solar plants.

Santa Margarita Ranch is one of the oldest continuously operated cattle ranches in the state of California.

Margarita Vineyard is “Sustainability in Practice (SIP)” certified; administered by an independent third party, SIP is one of the most stringent programs of its kind.

Our zipline tours are part of a larger vision for sustainable agritourism here on the historic Santa Margarita Ranch. By offering a unique, low-impact adventure on a working cattle ranch and vineyard, our hope is demonstrate how agriculture, tourism and sustainability can work hand in hand.

Sustainability Highlights

During your guided zipline tour, you will learn firsthand about Santa Margarita Ranch’s numerous sustainable ranching and vineyard practices, such as:

Solar Energy

Solar plants at Margarita Vineyard generate more electricity than the vineyard operations consume, reducing our carbon footprint and feeding a larger need for sustainable energy development.

Native Plant Restoration

Progressive ranch land management methods have resulted in the restoration of native grasses and a proliferation of young oak trees on the ranch.

Abundant Wildlife

Wildlife corridors and “leaky” fences allow for interconnected habitats and provide safe natural spaces for native animals—keep an eye out for deer, turkeys, eagles, bears and more on your tour!
