Malibu Rocky Oaks
Located in the Santa Monica Mountainside is the award-winning Malibu Rocky Oaks winery. A wine connoisseur’s’ dream, owner Howard Leight has been operating this family owned estate since 2003. The luxurious property has been in the Leight family for generations before opening its door to the public. The property is located 2,000 feet above sea level, creating the perfect setting for sun exposure, a Mediterranean microclimate, and natural volcanic California soil, creating the perfect bed of nutrients for the finest grapes found in North America. The property is an impressive expanse of 37 acres; 10 of those acres dedicated solely to growth of tall, sturdy, and fertile grape vines. Every moment of the process is handcrafted by Malibu Rocky Oaks, from the bottle to the hand sorted grapes grown at Healdsburg, one of the top wine producing capitals of the world.
The grapes are gingerly plucked from tendrils, pressed, fermented and then aged up to 18 months inside of seasoned French and American Oak barrels. Due to California state law, this sophisticated blend of tradition and flavor can never be replicated anywhere other than Malibu Rocky Oaks. Their prestigious wine can be found in stores all over the west coast or can be shipped directly to your door via a membership to the elite winery. Their rich, sophisticated creations are sent quarterly and may include a tour of the opulent grounds. Each of the bottles is hand selected by CEO Howard Leight. Affiliates of this brand are valued with the same specificity and care that made Malibu Rocky Oaks a household name.
