Wings and Wine. A Falconry Experience

Paso Robles, United States

Experience hosted by Anita

2 hours
Up to 4 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

We will take a hawk for a walk thru a local vineyard. Our trained hawk will fly from your gloved hand to fly free over the vineyard and come back to you again. We will spend at least an hour interacting with the birds. You will meet a falcon, “Jack” the eagle owl (who you will fall in love with) and a Harris hawk that we will free fly in the vineyard. Afterwards we will go wine tasting the wine from the vineyard you were in. The winemaker “Larry” is a fun person to talk to as he will explain how he makes his wine and help you to enjoy his naturally grown grapes that make his wine unique.
Other things to note
This is an outdoor experience so dress appropriately. Rain or extreme winds will cause cancellations.

My two passions collide in beautiful Paso Robles wine country. I’ve been a falconer for 30 years and work protecting wine grapes from invading birds. I get to fly falcons and hawks over growing grapes keeping the pests out. Wine and Wings! Does it get any better? We will be joined by one of my fellow falconers to make sure you get the best experience possible.

Where you'll be

We start our experience At the winery before it opens to guest. Once everyone has learned proper hawk etiquette we will begin our walk thru the vineyard. After our walk we end at the tasting room to enjoy local wine.
Via Vega vineyard is a small family run winery that produces some of the best wines on the central coast.

This was a very unique and fun experience. Anita and Sam are experts and take exquisite care of their animals. They were super friendly and knowledgeable. We loved getting to know the Ranger, Jack, and the others. Sitting down for wine tasting afterwards was a bonus. If you’re looking for a unique experience, this is it!

We enjoyed this experience immensely. Anita is a very experienced falconer and her birds seem to have a special bond with her. Getting up close, holding and flying her magnificent Harris's Hawk, was a fantastic way to experience its unique strength, agility and grace. I highly recommend this to anyone, but if you like birds, then you especially do not want to miss this experience. The wine tasting and personalized reviews of the unique wines by the winemaker at the vineyard was also interesting and entertaining.

I was very excited to be introduced personally to these amazing birds. It was very interactive and I didn’t feel rushed through the experience. My friend that joined me was a little apprehensive but quickly adapted to the close contact with the birds with great interest. I have been looking at my photos frequently to relive the day.

Anita and her daughter were incredible hosts. Flying the Falcons and feeling comfortable around all of the birds was a wonderful feeling. Very kind and personable host. And the wine tasting at the location was incredible. Some of the best ones I’ve had. And the owners of the winery were there and answered questions about their label and organic practices.

Anita and Sammy are so kind and made this experience an amazing once-in-a-lifetime moment for us. The birds are beautiful and it was so special to be able to share it with people who were so knowledgeable.

This was definitely a wonderful experience. It was amazingly interesting and informative and the hands on with the birds was great. I would recommend this experience along with the Via Vega winery.
