great funky place, beautiful wine, very knowledgeable owners, fantastic lovely ambiance, wonderful experience, friendly atmosphere, warm tim
Great local wines. I discovered this place while eating at the Old Place which is next door. Deana is super- she's very knowledgeable and will help you out if you want a recommendation. It's great- they feature all the local wines in Malibu. They also have a tasting room- only $15 for the tasting when i was there which is totally reasonable. Great to come over and grab a glass of wine here while you're waiting for a table at the Old Place. They'll even call over to tell you your table is ready!
If you are into wine like I am, you might have thoughts of building a wine bar, a wine store....
This is your dream... come and visit it.
Worth the fantastic drive, this destination is ideal for any visit to Malibu and very close to the 101 on your way home.
Tell them I sent you!
What a fun find!. Stumbled upon this gem of a place on way back from the beach. Great setting and fun people, this is a cool, funky place that features local wines. An there are more than you might imagine! They're set up for group functions, too. Definitely have to return to this tasting room when we've more time!
Great staff and location. I have now been to several events at the Cornell Winery and I have had a wonderful experience every time. The owners are great and attend to their clients’ every need. The ambiance is fantastic! You can feel the history of the building and it fits in flawlessly to its canyon surroundings. It is perfect for company parties or wedding receptions, both of which I have attended at the winery. I have also stopped by on a weekend afternoon to taste some good wine and while away the day. I highly recommend this undiscovered gem.
An enjoyable experience!. I went there with three friends on a recommendation and we were not disappointed. We were serviced by the owners despite the fact that they had another employee woking and they explained the wines we sampled explicitly. We were so happy with our experience, we ended up buying three bottles of the wines we sampled. I definitely would go back.
Wine, Art, History, Local Wine & Charm. The owners are genuinely charming. The building is beautiful, rustic yet elegant. The wine from this area is so good - it's exciting. Fantastic place for an afternoon wine-tasting, or a special private event. It is absolute magic, covered with amazing art, offering a unique and wonder giftshop, and fun items.... like chocolate pasta! This place is the BEST! See it for yourself and I konw you'll agree. I want to work there!
Just what we need in the Malibu hills.
Cornell has created the perfect niche for locals and visitors to connect with the broad array of very high quality wines now coming from the Malibu region.
While others are showcasing wines that are really from elsewhere, Cornell has wines that show the variety that
the terroir creates here along our coast and mountains.
Plus the staff are among the warmest, most knowledgeable, genuine folk you will find in a wine setting.
It is worth a visit, and like me, you will soon make it a regular stop!
Wine tasting at it's best!!. Wait until you walk inside and see the beautiful wood bar and the wonderful 30 foot long table in the back topped with glass candelabras. The art work around the store is all from local artists and the proprietor can tell you all about the history of the area (which is vast) while pouring you fantastic wines from the Malibu regions and beyond. Everyone is treated like family. Trust me, you will be coming back again and again.
Warm and inviting ambiance..
I have been to this winery a few times now and every time I go there, I am greeted right away by the owners, Denise and Tim. They are both wonderfully sweet and very knowledgable about the wines. I see them making sure their customers have their questions answered.
I felt right at home the second I walked in the door; the ambiance is amazing. They really did a fantastic job with desiging and furnishing the winery. I will return many times over and tell everyone I know to check the winery out.
Just a bit of country in Malibu.
The first time I went to Cornell Winery was for a private event. The tasting room is absolutely gorgeous with such amazing art. The catered food was spectacular and the wine was OUT OF THIS WORLD. The best part was the Peacock that walked up to my car and said "hi" as I was parking.
I have visited the tasting room many times since and have had a wonderful experience every single time. In fact, I think I may have my own birthday party here!
Thanks to the owners for creating such a special place!
