ABOUT OJAI ALISAL
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.
Our handcrafted wines, made by our winemakers Steve Lemley and Nate Hasper, come only from grapes grown by us in our vineyard. We have made our wines with a great Southern Rhone winemaking style in mind. We use oak sparingly to add complexity and enhance aging.
Ultimately our wines are an elegant reflection of the grapes, the land and the weather for that particular year. Ojai Alisal wines are meant to be enjoyed with a great meal, shared with family and friends.
“Our artisanal wines are handcrafted only from
grapes from the Ojai Alisal vineyard with a
deep respect for the terroir.”
