' Happy Valley Red - Ojai Alisal Vineyard

Happy Valley Red

2018 Happy Valley Red

“Inspired by our neighbors, Besant Hill School of Happy Valley, this extraordinary blend has been selected as their exclusive wine for outreach, fundraising, and friend-raising purposes.”

Celebrating the rebirth of the vineyard after the Thomas Fire. With only half the vines surviving the fire, our 2018 Happy Valley Red is a true field blend with all the grapes co-fermented together in the same barrels. Made to reflect the best of the Ojai Alisal vineyard each vintage year, this medium body red, is a smooth blend of our Grenache, Syrah Mourvedre, and Malbec, with flavors of cherries, plums and blackberries, along with hints of tobacco, chocolate and leather.
