Colcanyon Estate Wines – “Malibu’s newest longstanding vineyard” – is pleased to recognise its success in both the California State Fair commercial wine competition and the Orange County Wine Society commercial wine competition.
Between them, these competitions attracted more than 6000 wines drawn from more than 1000 wineries. Achieving a bronze medal in both of these competitions is a significant start to this up and coming boutique vineyard and a major boost to the viticulture of the Santa Monica Mountains region.
These were Colcanyon Estate Wines’ first commercial wine competition entries and saw it competing alongside many of the big names in California wine.
The award winning 2007 Merlot is highly representative of the quality and characteristics of the wines that we are producing and which display remarkable consistency from one year to the next.

Established in 2001, Colcanyon Estate Wines were amongst the early entrants in the up and coming Santa Monica Mountain wineries.
Located 2000 feet above Malibu, the vineyard is situated on a south facing slope with uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean. Cool morning mists that rise from the Pacific are replaced by warmth from the afternoon sun and create a setting that is perfect for growing robust red grapes.
Until now our wines haven’t been available beyond our family and friends but this changed in early 2010 with our first commercial release.
