Rosenthal - The Malibu Estate
Malibu is famed for its stunning beaches, but walk 4 miles inland and you'll find another coastal treasure—the wines of The Rosenthal Malibu Estate. In 1987, George Rosenthal began the process of planting the estate's first vines, which now spread across 250 acres of unique microclimate perfectly suited for grape growing. Sunny during the day and cool and breezy at night, the land yields red and white varietals, including more than 30 gold-medal award-winning varieties of chardonnay, viognier, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot, and cabernet franc. Winemaker Christian Roguenant oversees the entire process, from aging the wines in French oak barrels to tickling the grapes until their juice falls out.
Visitors to the Tasting Room, located on the scenic Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu just a few miles north of Santa Monica, can relax and enjoy sunny ocean views while sipping their favorite Rosenthal or Surfrider wine. Guests are invited to bring their own picnic or purchase a snack from the small selection of cheese and crackers.
