About Us

“Each vintage year Ojai Alisal produces less than 500 cases of artisanal wines made only from grapes grown in our vineyard.”


Ojai is a magical place. Our vineyard is nestled in the rolling hills of the Upper Ojai valley guarded by the Topa Topa Mountains. Millions of years ago this land was a shallow sea and we often find fossil shells scattered about the land. The name Ojai means “moon” or “nest” in the native Chumash Indian language.

Over the last thousand years the Chumash harvested acorns and walnuts from the trees that surround the vineyard. Today the land is also dotted with California Sycamores or “Alisal” in Spanish, giving the name to our wines, Ojai Alisal.
