Cheers to California Wine Month, the best time to experience grape harvest season! Whether you’re a full-on oenophile or just looking to learn more about different varietals, a retreat to Conejo Valley will delight your taste buds. Make sure these local favorites are on your wine list:
Family-owned and operated, this boutique winery crafts exceptional Bordeaux wines, both single varietals and special blends.They hand-pick the grapes in small lots, guide its natural potential, and simply focus on hands-on, artisanal winemaking.
This family-owned wine tasting room lets you actively participate in the experience and become part of the old Italy tradition. It’s the perfect place to unwind as you sip your way through Italian and non-Italian varietals under the winery’s private label.
Head here for a taste of France. Try the Cabernet France – a winemaker favorite. Or Malbec, the wild yeast-fermented Petite Sirah, Grenache, or Carignan produced from 60-year-old dry farming vines.
Expand your palate here as Wades Wines specializes in bringing limited production sips that offer individualistic character and intensity of flavor. Their collection includes varieties from all over the world, and they offer special wine tastings with the winemakers themselves to help you navigate!
A true hidden gem, this tasting room is full of Santa Monica Mountains history, crafty treasures and wines. Keep an eye out for two resident peacocks roaming the grounds when you get here!
One of the cutest wine-tasting experiences in nearby Malibu takes you on an adventure through the rolling hills in an open-air safari vehicle. Along the way, you’ll make stops to take in the scenery of the ranch, taste local wines and get up close and personal with zebras, camels, alpacas, bison, and even Stanley the Giraffe!
The only wine bar and tasting room on the Pacific Coast Highway that is literally a breath of fresh ocean air! Grab a glass of their famous Cabernet Sauvignon or Franc and sit back, play a game of cornhole or just relax and enjoy the vibe of this nearby winery in Malibu.
