A visit to Malibu Wines is almost a rite of passage for Angelenos. Whether you've lived here for 10 years or 10 months, you've probably been invited to a birthday, bachelorette or graduation party here at some point. It's easy to see why: the picturesque vineyard and tasting room boasts plenty of lawn space for picnicking (you can bring in food, but no alcohol); themed events include Friday night karaoke, Sunday yoga and mimosas and Thursday movie nights; and the pours behind the bar are fast and plentiful. Wines include varietals from Semler and Saddlerock vineyards, and while they're not the best of California, it's fun to taste through a few flights with friends on a gorgeous weekend afternoon. Looking for something a little more adventurous? Malibu Wine Safari combines the experience of a zoo and winery on their two-hour nature tour, where you'll get to personally feed animals while stopping to taste various wines from Saddlerock Ranch.

Malibu Wines says
Entirely outdoors, it's really more of a tasting playground with a huge stretch of astroturf ringed with a handful of tasting bars, all serving the same lineup of Saddlerock and Semler wines. It's a memorable scene, with large and small groups taking selfies in front of the vineyard or the vintage trucks, and tables of friends and birthday parties generally making merry. Malibu Wines has a variety of events Thursday through Sundays including Comedy Night, Yoga and Mimosa Sundays, Movie Under the Stars and Live Music. Call ahead to reserve table space.

It seems like everybody I know has had at least one "birthday celebration" here. Malibu Wines is a nice quick place to escape from LA proper for the day. It's a fairly nice drive, it's very inviting with it's open space and green grass, and the staff and wines are both pretty good. I took my parents once when they came to visit and it was a big hit. The crowd can certainly be huge depending on the time and day you go. Also, the crowd can sometimes be a bit preppy and frustrating. But don't let that deter you. Bring some snacks, show up early to grab a table, and enjoy some live music, wine, and the sun. Certainly worth stopping by one weekend if you haven't been.
