Malibu Solstice Vineyard

2700 Mar Vista Ridge Drive
Malibu, CA 90265


About Us:

Malibu Solstice is a micro vineyard located in the Solstice Canyon region of the Santa Monica Mountains in Malibu, CA.  The vineyard is solely dedicated to the variety Cabernet Sauvignon, the king of red wine.  The vineyard was planted in 1996 with Bordeaux clones.  Currently we have a little less than two acres under vine and our annual yield is between 150 and 300 cases of wine, depending upon seasonal conditions.   The vineyard is meticulously hand maintained by a small staff under the direction of the Schmitz family.  

As with every other wine grower in Los Angeles County, we are a vineyard and not a winery.  Actual wine production is outsourced to a local winery, currently C2 Cellars in Orcutt, CA.  Our Cabernet spends between 12 and 24 months in 59 gallon French Oak barrels.  The barrels are made using new and neutral oak; however, this blend does vary from year to year but never exceeds 50% new oak.  Once the wine has been bottled it is moved from the winery to a storage location for bottle maturation.  Following significant bottle maturation, a minimum of two years, we begin distribution.
