Old Creek winery: Wines and delicious exotic fruits
The Old Creek Ranch is Ventura County’s only rural winery set in the Ojai Valley and was a part of the 22,000-land grant made by the Mexican government in 1837. The Holguin family bought the property in July 2015 and brought a new vision to the winery. After around 30 years, vines are now growing on the property. In late 2019, an additional five hectares of land were planted with vines. The winery has four hectares dedicated to growing plum, peach, pomegranate, and persimmon.
Experience the wines made in respect of nature
The winemaker, Jeremy Leffert, moved to California after completing his studies. Under the guidance of Dr. Patterson, he worked hard to perfect his viticulture knowledge and winemaking skills and techniques. He has a very demanding mindset, both physically and technically. He has a lot of respect for nature, and all the wines at Old Creek Ranch have a natural taste without any additions or chemical preservatives.
Enjoy the great view of the winery
In late 2018 and the start of 2019, eight hectares of land were planted with Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Albarino, and Viognier. Later on, Syrah, Grenache, Tempranillo, and Sangiovese were also planted. The first harvest of the grapes is expected in 2022, and next year two hectares of Grenache will be planted too.
The best grapes are processed at the winery to make their natural red, white, rose, and sparkling wines
The winery has a beautiful outdoor seating area with stunning views of the vineyards and the lush natural landscape. Visitors are welcome to visit the Old Creek Ranch for a nice time.
