Malibu-Newton Canyon's seasons

Know what the best season is to visit Malibu-Newton Canyon and what to wear.

Winter
Winter

(December - February) With the coastal influence of the Malibu wine region, the winters are enjoyable, but can get cold because the inland valleys can be shielded from the onshore winds. Winter is the slowest time of the year where daytime temps range from 40-55 degrees, so we recommend you dress in layers.

Spring
Spring

(March - May) As Spring arrives, so do the temperatures. Spring awashes the hillsides in green and the vineyards become to life, showing their foliage in late April. Spring is also "release" season where most wineries begin offering their latest vintages with special parties and experiences. Reservations are recommended as many of the local wineries are small and offer limited space.

Summer
Summer

(June - August) Summer can offer temperatures from 65-95 degrees at times depending on the elevations you plan on visiting. We recommend you drink a lot of water and enjoy yourself as wineries offer many different tour and tasting events to choose from. Reservations are strongly recommended starting mid-June.

Fall
Fall

(September - November) Fall is harvest season in the Central Coast wine country, offering temperatures that range from 70 - 85 in September/October to cooler temps in November. This is the busiest time of the year as wineries host harvest parties. Most tasting rooms are small, so space is limited. Plan ahead if you want a really enjoy this region. Reservations are required.
