The Proprietor's Blog: Holidays are Approaching, Vines are Going Dormant

Hello Everyone, Happy Holidays! Thanksgiving was a true blast at our home with delicious AJA filled cocktails and AJA filled glasses. We are so grateful that everyone over here is healthy and happy. The vines are resting, we're finally done. All wine has gone through fermentation and is being barreled or steel tank settled to age and mature.  This growing season was rough. 2020 was very windy during the flowering stages which caused us to have less fruit per cluster. Our yield this year was not what we had anticipated. But I guess that's how 2020 went for EVERYONE. But...

The Health Benefits of a Glass of Red Wine

  So I went to the doctor today to get my wrists checked. Crawling up the vineyards (they're very steep) and manning the home bar hasn't been so helpful to them. We spoke about wine, as he always asks me how business is going.

So I felt I would use this platform to talk about some amazing local businesses that have been a help to AJA and how...

Farming Practices, Sustainable Methods

  Hi Everyone, It's me, Amanda, once again come to you with some more information about our LOVELY wines! Today is Monday July 20th. This week's weather forecast is going to be cool with a high of just 75 and some nice cloud coverage. The good news about this is that it means the vines get a bit more weather shifting causing them to relax a little before the home stretch! Our vines are looking spectacular. We were out in the vineyards on Friday with our vineyard consultant and manager. He said "I'm very pleased with what I see," which, in...

SOMM TV!

Hey Everyone, I'm back again for more winery news! It's been a busy week! Last Monday, we filmed with the amazing Jason B. Wise, Matthew Kaner and Bianca Vierra for the SOMM TV series Hidden AVAs, A Closer Look! For those of you who are strolling onto our page, you probably didn't realize that Malibu has wine! And that people like us make wine in Malibu! And when SOMM Tv asked us about Malibu, we said, "Well let us show you!"  They filmed a couple of segments: blind tastings, interviews about the AVA, and shots of the vineyards. We enjoyed quite...
