Margarita Adventures in Santa Margarita isn't just the place to zip through the air on a host of high-flying ziplines (before or after wine tasting at Ancient Peaks tasting room, of course). You may also see fossils hidden within the soil, gopher snakes, and even a rare albino deer (no joke—one was spotted recently, according to winery staff). Go to margaritaadventures.com for booking and info ... Born to Rhone?
