Locally sourced wines taste better because they eliminate the chance of flavors losing their way during 1,000-mile commutes. Savor the freshest tastes with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of wine by the glass or bottle at Malibu and Vine Outdoor Wine Bar's outdoor wine bar, located at Malibu Golf Club. The wine bar is open Thursday–Sunday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Aided by Malibu and Vine Outdoor Wine Bar's knowledgeable wine steward, chef Matthew Zubrod, a two-time James Beard Foundation honoree, curates a refined wine list of local bottles. At the picturesque outdoor wine bar, visitors can choose from a selection of over eight wines, such as the Saddlerock cabernet sauvignon or Semler syrah ($12 for a glass). Alternatively, guests can commit to a full bottle, toasting an anniversary with the Saddlerock NV sparkling brut ($33) or analyzing the nuanced flavors and symbolic dreams of the 2005 Semler merlot ($35). All of the wines hail from the verdant Malibu Family Wines vineyards, which have been part of the same family for 27 years.
The outdoor bar overlooks sweeping views of the Santa Monica Mountains and drag-racing golf carts of Malibu Golf Club. On weekends, live musicians toss chords into the warm breezes. Though not included in this Groupon, hungry guests can snack on a variety of small plates, such as lemon-basil aioli and crab cakes, made with local and organic ingredients.
