This past weekend, I was pleasantly reminded how much I love living in LA.

On Saturday, I spent my day at the beach followed by a BBQ at a friend's house. I managed to get a slight sunburn on one of my legs (not attractive), but it's ok. The day was definitely worth it, and then some.

Sunday, I headed up to Malibu Wines. Visiting Malibu Wines has been on my list of things to do for a looong time so I was pretty excited to finally go.

In my opinion, the best part about the winery is that their tasting room is entirely outdoors. You can bring in as much food as you want to picnic, (they don't sell any food at the winery) but no outside alcohol is allowed. (and yes, they will check your bags) There are plenty of tables, chairs, and grassy areas to lay out a blanket and picnic to your heart's desire. 

Ok, so the wine wasn't the best wine I've ever tasted, but it wasn't bad either. Their Semler 2009 Sauvignon Blanc went perfectly with my turkey sandwich and kettle chips. It was my favorite wine of the day...light, crisp, and fruity.

Starting in June, they will begin staying open until 9pm. I noticed that they have plenty of outdoor lights strung, so I can only imagine how pretty it will look at night. They also have live music 1pm-3pm on Saturdays and Sundays!
