Experience wine as a Malibu Local. Malibu Wines tasting room is the cozy and chic destination favored by surf and sand loving oenophiles. Nestled high above the fabled coastline that has enchanted the famous and the fabulous throughout its storied history, Malibu Wines invites you to choose from a selection of wines harvested and produced from this legendary terroir. Ocean air, luscious sky, impeccable grapes, classic soil – each sip is a memory produced with love and affection from the locals. Viva Malibu!We proudly feature fine wine from Malibu Family Wines, proud producers of Semler and Saddlerock Wines. Malibu Family Wines is best known for integrating new-world technology with old-world artistry. The vineyards are located in the ideal environment for growing premium wine grapes – high altitude separated from the coastline, pristine weather conditions, rocky soil. Hand picked and harvested the same day, the vines are typically harvested in late September or early October. Wines are aged in a combination of French and American Oak. The final result is a perfectly designed blend of fruit, tannins, and structure, complex and drinkable. You will love the drive to our tasting room. Situated just minutes from the Pacific Coast Highway off of Mullholland Highway, Malibu Wines is located about 25 miles north of Santa Monica. Visitors are welcome to taste wines from 11 AM to 6 PM, Wednesday – Sunday. Please call us for seasonal hours.

My girlfriend and I decided to travel from Santa Monica, up the PCH to Malibu Family Wines. It was the highlight of our trip! I suggest stopping at Ralph's grocery store at 23841 Malibu Rd, Malibu, CA 90265, before heading up as you're allowed to bring your own food. We were there from 11:30am-3pm. Had the entire upper part to... More

We decided to take a ride along the beautiful PCH from the South Bay Beach communities like Redondo, Hermosa and Manhattan up to Malibu and thought it wouldn't be far off the highway to check out Malibu Wines. Having enjoyed Sonoma and Napa in Northern California and many of the wineries spread among the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New... More

The drive up to this place is lovely with views of the coast most of the way up the mountain. Nearing the top, the vegetation gives way to mostly rock and sand and you can start to appreciate the 'desert' part of LA. I went here with some friends of mine and arrived just before 4pm. We packed our own... More

Really nice selection of bruts and champagne-style wines, especially sparkling chardonnay (blanc-de-blanc). I didn't get around to trying the others on this visit but I hope to next time I get down that way. Service was very friendly and server was knowledgeable.

We made the drive up the hills to Malibu Wines. What a great location and the views are endless. Tons of places to sit and enjoy. I can only imagine how busy they are on the weekend. We were there on a Wednesday and it was still fairly busy. The staff are polite and helpful. We enjoyed our chat with... More

I liked this place for the atmosphere: great spot for a picnic, live music and relaxing with friends. The wine tasting was okay: I thought the flights were a little boring and overpriced for the wine they serve. In other words, I didn't really care for the wine at this winery. It wasn't BAD, but I didn't want to have... More

I'm a longtime wine club member and cancelled my wine club membership for two reasons - 1) they no longer donate or discount wine for local non-profits and 2) the ridiculous parking fee that has to be paid to pick-up your wine. I'll stick with Opolo, Four Brix, and a host of other lovely wineries.

Had a very enjoyable stop here recently. They are pouring estate and other wines, mostly reds, but a couple great whites. Got a fab non-oaked Chardonnay. The grounds are lovely- but no one under 21. Leave the kids elsewhere is coming for a tasting or event.

Wonderful place. Clean picnic type grounds covered in AstroTurf, so you don't have to worry about staining your nice cloths if you sit on the ground. Reasonably prices for the wine tasting with an excellent selection. Great atmosphere.

Love this place! Great wine and Mimosa Tastings on Sundays! Nice outdoor seating area with live music. Bring a picnic and spend the day! Valet parking or Complimentary shuttle just up the road. Perfect spot to relax on the weekend in the beautiful Malibu Mountains!
