Zip and sip in Central Coast wine country

Wineries are the new amusement parks of the West. Ancient Peaks Winery, on the historic Santa Margarita Ranch near Paso Robles, CA, has added tours that zoom you down four ziplines with views of vineyards and the Santa Lucia Mountains. The first ride is a bit of a heart-stopper, but after zipping 1,300 feet across a lush valley, you’ll appreciate that first sip of wine even more. The nearly three-hour tour ends in the tasting room, where you can refuel with a glass of Merlot, cheese, and other nibbles. $99, including wine; margarita-adventures.com
