Wine lovers who also happen to be adrenaline junkies are being courted in an emerging trend with ziplining tours that soar above vineyard canopies. There is a disclaimer, however: don’t drink and zip.

Pinot Express

A California ziplining outfit is the latest to take winery tours to new heights, with a ride that flies guests above a Pinot Noir vineyard in the Paso Robles wine country.

Instead of gentle biking or walking tours, riders dangle 125 feet (38 m) above ground on a 1,800-foot (550 m) long zipline that swoops low over Pinot Noir vines at the historic Santa Margarita Ranch.

The zipline canopy ride by Margarita Adventures includes a guided tour of the 18th century ranch founded by Franciscan missionaries, and an optional wine tasting.
