Had the best time at Malibu Wines with five of my girlfriends and will definitely be back!
There are three main seating areas: 1) Upper Area - has the best view of the Malibu mountains but in order to get there, you have to walk up this steep ramp which would've been pretty hard with high wedges plus there was no turf 2) Main Area in Front of Stage - table seating closest to stage and live entertainment, and 3) Side Area with Fire Pits - best location in my opinion. We chose the side area with the fire pits (even though the fire pits weren't turned on - assuming this only happens when they're open later than 6p), we arrived at noon and were lucky to get the last seating in this area. This place fills up fast! After we were settled in, more people came to this area but set up picnic style.
There were two live performances at noon and 3pm so it was nice to be close enough to hear the music but not sit in a crowded area where we can converse as well.
We took munchies like cheese, crackers, fruits, veggie chips, etc. and paired these with the yummy wines that they offered.
There are three main areas for wine tasting which includes a mimosa tasting area. We tried the mimosa flight which was amazing (1 champagne with 5 different fruit flavor mixers) and a good start to the day and then followed with just getting bottles of wine after this. Tried the Syrah and Cab Sav and loved both. They offer two types of wine, Semler, which is their estate wine grown right in Malibu and Saddlerock, which is sourced grapes and juice from different vineyards throughout the central coast of California.
Great atmosphere and super relaxing!
