Malibu Coast Wineries
Malibu Coast became officially an American Viticultural Area only recently, thus turning the region into a true contender when it comes to Californian wine. The official designation may be new, but the tradition of making wine is two centuries old. Malibu Coast wineries have existed since the early 19th century when the first documented vineyard was founded.
Since then, wine lovers and industrialists have flocked to the area to cultivate vineyard and develop wineries according to their own personal vision. The area is perfect for growing some of the world’s top quality noble grapes, resulting into fine wines, which acquired worldwide recognition. The climate, together with the nutritious volcanic soil and the cooling fog given by the Pacific Ocean makes it possible for the Malibu Coast wineries to produce award winning wines, making the region one of the most famous ones in the country, thus resulting in more than just attention from investors and industrialists.
The Malibu Coast wineries have been built and developed in this area due to the perfect climate and geology. The area is characterized by a Mediterranean climate which makes it perfect for the growth of wine grapes in the area, especially Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the hills where the climate is even warmer than in the lower altitude regions. While the area is fairly rich when it comes to vineyards and wineries, very few are actually open for the public. This doesn’t mean that you can’t visit and have a vacation in this area in order to experience the pleasures and information a winery has to offer. Many wineries in the region simply demand appointments to be scheduled ahead of time because they allow a limited number of people in a tour at a given time.
Malibu Coast wineries offer manly beloved experiences with all the available wine tasting events in places overlooking the ocean where you could enjoy a picnic with your loved one and indulge yourself with some of the world’s best wine. While peace and relaxation as well as good food blended in with exquisite wine, is something every type of person would greatly enjoy, the wineries offer you the chance to meet the wine makers themselves and see how grapes are grown, harvested, processed and turned into the delicious wine you love. It should be noted that the majority of wineries are actually small to medium sized, and they are mostly family businesses. Some of the hidden gems are hidden in these least known and advertised wineries.
If you want to experience a relaxing vacation, with the most beautiful sights to see, exquisite wine and food to drink while also learning how the wine industry works, then the Malibu Coast wineries are the place to visit.
