#11 of 20 in Things to do in Ojai
The Ojai Vineyard began in 1983 with the dream

of producing distinctive California wines using

traditional wine making practices learned in Burgundy.

Twenty-seven years later Adam Tolmach

continues to pursue the craft at his artisanal

winery in Ojai. 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.

  • I came to this place hoping to taste some wine. When I entered the tasting room, there was no CLOSED sign on the door, and inside there were 8-10 people seated at the bar tasting wine. But the man refused to serve me claiming they were closing at 6pm. But he repeatedly offered to sell me some wine instead. When I pointed out that (1) I was there to taste some wine (2) it would be difficult to decide which wine to buy without tasting first (3) it wouldn't take long to taste a few wines, and (4) there were 8-10 people sitting at the bar at the time tasting wine so clearly he wasn't closing anytime soon, the man became irritated and said "You're making me very angry." For a man in a position of customer service and salesmanship, surely you should not let anger get the better of you. Instead of focusing on your own feelings, perhaps try (however hard it may be) empathizing wth your customers? Happy people make good customers. Obviously you have never heard of this. Had you allowed me to taste a few wines in 10 minutes of your overtime, surely I would feel obliged to buy? But going home was far more important to you. It's either that, or some small-town racism at play (I felt singled out by your refusal of service when there were other customers tasting wine at the bar). However you will try to justify your behaviour, it was a totally unpleasant experience for me as a potential customer.
  • We stopped by with some friends while we were in Ojai. The staff was welcoming and knowledgeable and helped us follow up on a wine we had the night earlier at Olivella. Enjoyed the experience and bought some wines for our trip and some to be sent home.
  • Pinot Noir was delicious! Ordered some for home.
  • The best wine tasting room in Ojai! Charlie is amazing. Knowledgeable and very friendly. He made our day!
  • I always try to stop in for a glass when I'm in Ojai. Great wines, and always a welcoming and warm environment. Highly recommended.
