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 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 ourselves with a fantastic view. Loved the Country music playing. It's a great place to tasted some wine and spend an afternoon eating and conversing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

We spent around $70 for 2 tasting flights (6 per flight) and a bottle of wine.

My friends and I were visiting from Florida and had the best time. Parking wasn't the greatest, Valet was $14 and there is a shuttle to a nearby lot. There are tables to eat your own provided lunch, or you can setup on the grass. There's a live band with a dance floor, which was packed full of happy people! Truly a great experience and the wine was good too! :-)

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 dinner and ordered the holiday flight of wine. I'm not a wine person so I can't comment on the wine but the atmosphere of this place was like crashing someone's outdoor ranch-style wedding - in a great way. The band was playing hits from the 70s and 80s, lots of people were dancing, lots of little white lights which gave the place a nice glow for light and there was a really awesome happy vibe to everyone in the place but this might have also had to do with arriving within 2 hours of closing!

We visited the place on a Sunday night. If I had to do it over again, I would still stay around 2hrs but plan to arrive an hour earlier so we could enjoy the place with the band playing in the background.

A nod to the good service at the bar, they were casual or chatty depending on your own vibe and they kept track of your tasting so you could enjoy each glass at whatever pace suited you. It probably goes without saying that you can bring your own food but you can't bring any alcohol with you to this place.

There is valet parking but you can keep the 14$ for drinking by driving 5 mins further down the road to their larger parking lot and using their free shuttle (looks like an old trolley car complete with wooden bench seating). There was no schedule to the shuttle but we only ended up waiting at the end of the night (about 5mins) for a pickup.

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.

Used to love this place. Was a member for years. Beautiful setting, ambience, and entertainment. Then the crowds hit and the place became a zoo. Not only are there typically no tables available, but there's no grass available either... which means you can't even walk along a path without climbing over other patrons. And I've heard the valet has become horrific as well, losing keys and damaging cars... It's a shame when wonderful things get out of hand...

This is the only winery actually opens the whole week to the public, most of the wineries in Malibu, even Rosenthal on the touristic highway 101 running along the ocean where closed on Monday. So we drive to one winery to other found all where closed except for Malibu wines. The flighs for the local Malibu wines were more expensive $15 but worthy, we loved the red blends, and the guy who help us was very helpful and told us a little introduction of each wine any time he poured us. We took to many pictures around the charming gardens, the fish tanks and the old vintage cars and buses around the winery,plenty of cute places for photography. The gift shop has also a unique charming array of good,cheeses, honey, jellies and jewelry. Definetely a place worthy to stop by any time of the week. Becaise different to other wineries in the region, is the only that opens 7 days a week. The parking lot is small but perfect for the public that goes there on weekdays, on weekends you have to park in another lot further away from the winery, I don't know where and climb in a shuttle that brings you to the winery grounds.

Beautiful location, great wine and friendly people (and squirrels). We came here after visiting Malibu Wine Safari and was so glad we did. The wines are excellent, the service is great and not too crowded. You can bring your own food and snacks (they also has a food truck while we were there) and had a great live band playing and were told there was a comedy act coming on after the band. I would frequent this location often if I lived in the area.

This is beautiful location for a relaxing afternoon. Pack a picnic and enjoy wine by the tasting, glass, or bottle. Live music on the weekends!

This was a perfect location for my sister's bridal shower. We reserved the gazebo area. Wines and wine service were excellent. Sunday seems like a day for crowds to come out to the winery. It was actually just fine. Outdoor music, nice crowds, and we enjoyed our outdoor reserved place!

Reserve a table if you have a group, bring some snacks, and enjoy some fantastic wine with live music and a great view. We came for a friend's birthday and it was relaxing and a lot of fun.
