At the western end of Los Angeles' famed "Mulholland Drive", lies a few special custom and equestrian neighborhoods. From Agoura, heading southwest to west Malibu, one will find many ranches, trails, and compelling hideaway spots known to locals.
A few world-class wineries thrive here. The climate is remarkably similar to that of the most productive wine producing regions in southern France and Italy. Malibu Family Winery, which bottles under the Semler and Saddlerock labels, has a wine tasting bar, wine club membership, and hosts many themed movies and dinners under the stars. Cielo Wine Bar, also known as "Sip", located in the canyon on Kanan Road, hosts a Sunday brunch not to be missed. Sip is located right next door to the famous Rustic Canyon General Store. Here, hungry and thirsty Harley riders convene on Sundays as they take a break from their bikes while travelling on Mulholland from Hollywood or points east, to Malibu. The General Store welcomes beach goers as well on their ride through the canyon from Zuma Beach in Malibu. The grill is fired up, and there are lots of shady spots to sit and relax. Also, close by in the Cornell neighborhood of Agoura, is "The Old Place Restaurant".
The neighborhoods bordering Kanan Rd. host many ranches to board your horses and take riding lessons. Top notch equestrian facilities include Lionheart Ranch, Southland Farms, and Creekside Ranch.
