Ojai Vineyard

The Ojai Vineyard began in 1983 with the dream of producing distinctive California wines using traditional wine making practices learned in Burgundy and the Rhone valley. Twenty-eight years later Adam Tolmach continues to pursue the craft at his artisanal winery in Ojai, California, purchasing grapes from the finest terroirs in the coolest districts of northern Santa Barbara County. His quest to bring together European sensibilities of balance and finesse with the exuberant fruit from coastal California vineyards is expressed in the wines he makes today.

For almost three decades The Ojai Vineyard has been on the cutting edge of wine production in the Santa Barbara area. We have kept true to our ideals and have stayed small and crafty, making some of the most compelling wines in the central coast region.

The wines have been recognized nationally and internationally by the top wine critics, restaurants and wine aficionados.

The Tasting Room, located in downtown Ojai at 109 South Montgomery Street, is the place to visit and discover the diversity of The Ojai Vineyard's offerings. Over 150 Ojai Vineyard wines are in stock and available for sale. The tasting menu changes regularly and includes a daily special.

We serve a flight of 6 wines. The price is $15 and includes a riedel glass.

Our highly qualified and knowledgeable staff is happy to share stories about our craft from the simplest to the most arcane.

We are open every day from noon to 5pm.
We will be closed on Thanksgiving day and Christmas day only.

For reservations please contact the hotel concierge at 805.646.5511 at extension 51.
