This Dreamy Farm In Malibu Is An Idyllic Escape For Wine Lovers

Venture out to the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains and discover the splendor of Cielo Farm, where over 30 acres of olive trees and vines sprawl across the rolling landscapes. At the heart of it all, a rustic Tuscan-styled stone barn beckons, offering not only one of the top wedding venues (for reasons that are all too clear), but also a tasting room that boasts an outdoor seating area replete with panoramic views that are simply breathtaking. Imagine stepping into a heavenly realm where you can luxuriate in sunsets and picturesque surroundings, while sipping on incredible California wines and inhaling the fresh, ocean-scented air.

The tasting room - aptly dubbed The Barn - celebrates the land and its rich offerings, as well as the passion and craftsmanship of those who tend to it. This family-run estate has been thriving since 1999 and exudes the peaceful seclusion of a countryside villa without venturing too far from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles.

A visit to Cielo Farm promises a tasting experience that includes both the estate and Woodstock wines. You'll have the opportunity to sample 20 wines that are exclusive to this Malibu experience. From the full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with its complex mineral notes to a white blend made with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Muscat varietals - Cielo Farm has it all.

The name "Cielo," which means "sky" in Italian, is fitting for this dreamy slice of SoCal perched in the mountains. Here, uninterrupted views offer endless blue skies juxtaposed against lush green hills. You'll bask in the serene beauty of the vineyards and olive groves while feasting on a beautiful charcuterie board or wood-fired pizza as the sun takes its final bow and the twinkling fairy lights set the terrace aglow. If you'd like to take a bit of the magic home with you, there's always the option of joining the wine club.

Reservations can be made through Tock for groups of 2 to 6 people with a $25 table charge, and timeslots starting from 3 p.m. While Cielo Farm is a 40-minute drive from Los Angeles, it is undoubtedly well worth the journey. So grab your fellow wine lovers and treat yourself to the perfect day out in this idyllic setting!
