Agua Dulce Winery Events, The Vineyard, Uncategorized

Play with monkeys in the morning and drink wine in the afternoon. Welcome to Santa Clarita!

A day in Santa Clarita is fabulous just on its own. How about a day surrounded by exotic wildlife and ending with a full glass of wine watching the sunset at our vineyard.

Our neighbors at Animal Tracks, Inc  are a non-profit exotic animal sanctuary. They offer a unique experience for the whole family and educates the public through exciting, interactive, live animal encounters. Monkeys, wild cats plus so much more. This is an unbelievable experience to show your kids or friends. Spend time with these animals, getting to know them and their lifestyle while giving back.  Their mission is to provide a home for animals that cannot be returned to their native habitats. Most of the residents become ambassadors for their species and assist in programs about conservation.

After you have experienced the wildlife, come by Agua Dulce Winery. Sit back, relax and enjoy a glass of wine. We have the sweetest animals too by our gazebos! Plus everything you need and deserve after your day. You can even stay the night with us in our 5,000 square foot house. More details here.



Give us a call or come by! See you soon – Cheers!
“The Animal Tracks “Tour & Tasting” was a huge success! We had an amazing lunch outside in a beautiful gazebo. The weather was perfect. Delicious chilled wine was ready upon arrival. We had a variety of yummy tastings, a tour full of fun and laughter, and of course, the company was a blast!!! Thank you to all who came out and enjoyed this day with me! I’m so excited to to do it again!” -Christina. 7
