Where to Drink Outdoors in West San Fernando Valley: Malibu Wines & Beer Garden (West Hills, CA)

After recently moving to Woodland Hills, I started checking out the places near my new neighborhood, including the Malibu Wines & Beer Garden in West Hills. The wine and beer garden is the sister tasting room of Malibu Wines and it's set in an old Spanish estate. It's a beautiful spot to drink outdoors.

They serve Malibu wines (Semler and Saddlerock) as a tasting or by the glass, as well as selling them by the bottles. On top of the wines, they also offer a solid selection of local craft beers including from Five Threads Brewing (Westlake Village), Craftsman Brewing (Pasadena), Modern Times (San Diego) and more.

On the weekends, they also have food vendors, like Two Doughs Pizza Co.

I wasn't going to get food that evening, but I read good reviews about Two Doughs Pizza Co, and they normally only do events or set up here or at Santa Monica Brewing, so I took the chance to try it.

I tried the Margherita pizza and was pretty impressed by the sourdough! This was their thin Neapolitan style pizza, but I heard they have a good deep dish as well that I still need to try.

There was a private party going on the night I was there. It seems like a great place for a bridal shower and such events, although there is a fee to rent the space (not including wines) on the weekends. They also have live music on the weekends.

While I was there, I ran into a couple who live across the street from the wine garden. They told me about the wine club membership. As a member, they get two free wine tastings every time they visit a participating tasting room. Since they live across the street, you can imagine they visit quite a bit! If you live nearby, I would recommend this. It's a great place to hang out with friends or bring out of town visitors when the weather is nice.
