This is our world - and we want to share it with you.
Mountains rise toward the sky, rows of vines stretch out... and you know you’ve found your piece of paradise. That’s how we feel every morning here at Mizel, where crisp sunrises, wisps of fog, and the smells of the trees, grapes and roses intermingle. In the evening, curl up on a couch under warm skies and rest your freshly-poured glass on one of our wine barrels. “Real life” can fall away, along with your worries. There’s no place else to be.
At the heart of Mizel Estate is a commitment to bringing people, elements, and dreams together. From the estate’s name - Mizel, which is a blend of the names of our two owners, Mike and Zelene - to our celebrated and exceptional wines, right through to the work of our philanthropic foundation, everything we do is about inclusivity, connection and warmth.
This isn’t just a world-class vineyard, a breathtaking 38 acre farm and home to some of the premier equestrian dressage facilities in the country. This is a space for wonder and adventure, for new experiences with old friends, and for the creation of memories that endure.
Surrounded by magnificent California oak, sycamore and Cyprus trees, and with an English rose garden, koi pond, and waterfall, Mizel is nestled in the heart of the spectacular Santa Monica Mountains, adjacent to Malibu Valley.

The Mizel Foundation
Mizel Family Foundation’s purpose is to create genuine educational and career opportunities for people with unique abilities. A percentage of all Mizel Wine proceeds is donated to our Foundation. The story of Mizel Family Foundation begins close to our home and hearts with Zelene, daughter Izzy and son Henry. Henry is uniquely-abled, as he experiences Down syndrome. Henry inspired us to provide special opportunities for uniquely-abled young people to experience art, music, and sports both on Mizel Estate, as well as, a variety of additional prominent venues.
Further, Mizel is committed to hiring employees of diverse backgrounds and abilities. Our goal is to employ and mentor uniquely-abled young adults to facilitate the growth of Mizel Estate. Mizel Estate truly is a place where all are welcome and accepted. For more information please contact us at [email protected]
