Owner description: 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.

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

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

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!

As an oenophile I was less than impressed with the wine and environment of Malibu Wines. If you are a lover of fine wine and enjoy Napa or Sonoma, this will seem like a frat party. WINES Wine is only served by the bottle or in flights. In my opinion, the wine is not very good. I tried several and... More

My son and his girl friend took us to Malibu Wines and we had a great time. We brought food we had purchased earlier from the fabulous Calabasas Farmers Market and of course bought our wine there. The wine was excellent. We saw bridal showers, bachelor parties, themed groups, and groups into amazing cheese with their wine. We enjoyed live... More

A beautiful location for a picnic with friends. All they serve is wine and water, so bring your own snacks, soft drinks and picnic blanket. Web site says they don't take reservations, but when we arrived there were several tables with "reserved for" signs that stayed empty the whole time (about 3 hours). So apparently, they do take reservations. Even... More
