To celebrate my friend M, her boyfriend planned a birthday afternoon at Malibu Family Winery. There's an outdoor picnic area, live music will play and we'll be able to taste wine. So I'm whipping up some yummy food, packing a picnic bag and heading to the hills.
What a creative way to celebrate someone's birthday. It's not a dinner, a house party or a toast at a pub. It's something most of us have never done before.
Even though this winery is local, I didn't know it was there. Sure, I've been to Napa and Sonoma and enjoyed lush Northern vineyards and delicious wine. But sometimes, oddly, we tend to ignore local treasures.
