Taste the Red, White and Rosé at Malibu Wines

Escape 12 minutes down Kanan to the beautiful Santa Monica for wine tasting and feel like you're hours away.

When the weather starts to get warm and sunny (um, anytime now) my girlfriends and I like to escape the suburban mommy doldrums and head 12 minutes south to the Malibu Wines tasting room, located just off of Kanan at 31740 Mulholland Highway.

There is a fabulous tasting bar where the very knowledgeable and friendly sommeliers will be happy to pour one of three flights for you–the Saddlerock Ranch flight ($10) featuring one white and three reds, the Semler Estate Flight ($12) featuring one white, one rose, and two reds, and the Cab Flight ($12).  Semler wines are the estate-grown wines from the vineyards in Malibu and Saddlerock wines are grapes sourced from the central coast of California.

Become a member of the Malibu Winery and enjoy a tasting for yourself and a friend for free anytime you like.

My girlfriends and I will usually do a tasting and then purchase a bottle of wine to enjoy at one of the umbrella-shaded stone tables set upon an old wine barrel.  Of course, the afternoon wouldn’t be complete without a picnic basket full of cheese, tapenade, a fresh baguette, and maybe a little bit of dark chocolate thrown in.  My friends and I have been known to linger for hours over plentiful small bites and a bottle (or two) of the winery’s wonderful offerings.

If you decide to escape with the one you love instead a gaggle of girlfriends, the picnic grounds also serve as a wonderfully romantic spot for an afternoon date with your sweetheart.

When you do escape to this fantastic local haven be sure to escape kid-free. This Great Escape is for adults only–no one under the age of 21 is allowed on the premises.

The tasting room is open daily from 11-6 with extended hours Thursday-Saturday in the summer. There is often live music on weekends. Check the calendar page on their website for details.
