Stretch Out on this Private Tour with Wine and Sunset
One of our many wine tasting destinations right in Los Angeles is Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate Vineyards (“MRO”). This beautiful home in the Santa Monica Mountains above Malibu is surrounded by wine grape growing acreage. A sightseeing adventure in L.A. can mean the usual expedition to Hollywood historic sights and Beverly Hills movie star homes but then, after all that history and glamor (and fun) expect a relaxing rest by the infinity pool overlooking the mountains as the sun sets at MRO. Do not forget that you will be plied with the estate’s finest wines as you breathe in deeply the mountain and sea air. Of course you will have an opportunity to wander through this Tuscan-style mansion where countless movies and television shows have been filmed and parties and gatherings for the biggest names in the entertainment industry are regularly hosted. Feel like the VIP you are so close to a major metropolitan city and yet in a quiet wilderness where you only hear the gurgling of the pumps in the spa of the infinity pool and perhaps and occasional sea gull or raptor calling. You may not want to leave…ever. Oh, by the way, if you are in Los Angeles for a special occasion we can plan a very special event at MRO for you. How about a meal prepared by a private chef? With a musician or two? A massage after swimming and a soak in the spa? Private screening of your favorite film? The possibilities are endless. Call us now and begin planning a very special private tour in Los Angeles.
This Private Tour is Private at the Destination
We have this extraordinary luxurious estate all to ourselves for an exclusive wine tasting as we watch the sun set. The drive itself from Los Angeles along the Pacific Coast Highway (“PCH”) and then up through the Santa Monica Mountains above Malibu itself is amazing, jawdropping to our private tour guests visiting Southern California from their far away home. Our staff is split trying to decide if the drive is more awesome than flying by helicopter to Malibu Rocky Oaks, a mountaintop vineyard and estate. Either way, getting here is an adventure but only part of the fun.
Spreading out into the living areas of this Tuscan-style home, enjoying the wide open decks that overlook the vineyards and steep hillsides all around, we sample wines made from the grapes growing all around us and soak in the golden colors drenching the landscape as the sky darkens. The beauty of the region is inspirational. We are blessed to have access to this one-of-a-kind destination and are delighted to share it with our guests who love wine, fine weather and the world of Los Angeles.
Add Luxury Swimming to Luxury Private Tour
Maybe swimming in the Pacific Ocean is not special enough for our guests on a private tour around Los Angeles. The beaches are very crowded and very hot lately in these dog days of summer. The swimming pool at their hotel is also crowded. What do we suggest to remedy the heat of July and August while out sightseeing? We suggest that we hurry up to Malibu Rocky Oaks for a private tour of a winery and estate so elegant and unique that film production companies are lining up to use the facility for filming. This is luxury at its best. Our guests can have exclusive access to the residence after a private tour of the vineyards and this Tuscan-inspired home. A private chef will prepare lunch and the repast can be served while enjoying the infinity pool that overlooks the Santa Monica Mountains above Malibu. We do not even have to drive up into the mountains because the estate has its own helipad. The ocean is close enough that occasional winds bring a salty breeze over the pool. Wine, lunch, cool water…this is the ultimate in luxury touring and relaxation. Speaking of which, should we have a masseuse awaiting you after your swim?
Our Private Tour “Getaway” to a Malibu Winery
We call it Urban Escape. You would not think that so many people traveling to Los Angeles, 500 square miles of city for 5 million people, would then be eager to fly to a nearby oasis to sip fine wine and enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch. This is a very popular private Los Angeles tour for us all through the year and especially in the summer. We now have two different Malibu wineries with helicopter landing facilities so that we can quickly get to our destination and spend more time enjoying the pleasant surrounds. One of these wonderful wineries has a quiet backyard area for our guests to enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch and sample the fruit of the vines that grow on the hillsides. There is also a collection of old cars and farm equipment and a menagerie of very approachable beasts that make this agricultural oasis seem so far away from the nearby bustling metropolis of Los Angeles. Our newest landing zone for an Urban Escape adventure tour is a castle on a hill. This private estate can be home to our guests for a short period of time to enjoy whatever amenities they can dream of – a private chef cooked meal, entertainment, massages, swimming. There is always, of course, a chance to enjoy the wines of this Tuscany-style palace in the mountains where movie stars party and Hollywood frequently films. Enjoy a VIP luxury tour of very local vineyards here in Los Angeles in grand style and fly with us on an Urban Escape!
Our Private Tour Guests Can Also Arrange a
Weekend Away at Malibu Rocky Oaks
Our exclusive private tour access to Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate and Vineyard up in the mountains northwest of Los Angeles allows us to drive or fly (note the helipad to the left of the infinity pool) to this fabulous estate with our Los Angeles tour guests for private tour and wine tasting of MRO label varietals. We can also arrange for our guests to enjoy a private cooked meal while musicians fill the air with music or have masseuses waiting beside the pool for some deep relaxation. Even better, we can arrange for an overnight (or more) stay up here in the Santa Monica Mountains, away from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood and Beverly Hills in a location often used by filmmakers and party planners to stage special events (take a look at this recent Mercedes promotion). The clear air and warm sunshine is perfect for growing grapes and the solitude and beauty is perfect for enjoying the fruit of the vine.
A Private Tour Adventure to Malibu Rocky Oaks
A spectacular journey lies in store for our private Los Angeles tour guests who wish to spend some high quality time at our exclusive estate getaway in the mountains – Malibu Rocky Oaks.

Or….we can fly! The estate has its own helipad adjoining the house which is the perfect spot to land our luxury Sikorsky S76 or our smaller, yet equally well-appointed Agusta, A-Star or TwinStar aircraft. This is VIP travel to a very elite location favored by Hollywood stars, professional athletes and government leaders. We offer more than just a tour of the home and vineyards, too. A private chef, sommelier, entertainment, private overnight accommodation with staff…whatever the occasion or experience desired by our guests we will see to it that it happens beyond their expectations.

Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate and Vineyard

The coast route and the mountain highway offer regular breathtaking views of Santa Monica Bay and the local coast mountain range. Celebrity mansions, movie star ranches and all sorts of historic and memorable sights appear along our various routes between Los Angeles and MRO. Once at the estate we can really appreciate the architecture and design of the structure. All our custom tours to MRO include wine tasting of the estate’s own vintages which are fast becoming prized by the wine drinking community. As this fabulous estate is a luxury home we can arrange for some of the amenities one might expect: a gourmet meal, private massage, entertainment, whatever our guests can think of we can make happen.
Buzz In and Out of Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate and
Leave with a Fine Wine Buzz
We always urge our guests to visit Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate and Winery at sunset. Located high up in the Santa Monica Mountains above Malibu we fly in by helicopter late in the day for a private tour of the estate and an excellent wine tasting session of MRO vintages overlooking the mountains as the sun lowers in the sky. Sitting by the infinity pool the aircraft idles on the helipad below as we sample the varietals produced at this magnificent estate. This is living large just like Hollywood movie stars. When the sun sets we make our return to the city in the last light of the day. The beauty and peace is indescribable on this unique private helicopter tour of Los Angeles.

Travel Writers Love a Los Angeles Tour, Too
Brooke Saward, the marvelous travel writer of WorldofWanderlust.com, visited Los Angeles recently with her father and once again relied on us to show her the sights and adventures that a private Los Angeles tour has to offer. This time we flew her by helicopter to Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate, a private home and winery in the Santa Monica Mountains above Malibu. We arrange for private visits to this magnificent structure on a mountain and if our guests are interested provide masseuses and a chef for a private massage and elegant dining experience in this distinct location. After all, romantic reality shows film here and celebrities take over the estate for their private parties and fundraisers. We and our guests prefer a little more privacy and quiet to enjoy the luxury afforded here at Malibu Rocky Oaks so we come alone. Here is a link to a short video we made with Brooke.
