Old Creek Ranch Winery a little history

The Old Creek Ranch Winery is owned and managed by John and Carmel Whitman. Carmel is the daughter of Mike and Carmel Maitland, the original founders of the winery in 1981.During the 29 years of the Winery’s operation there have been many award winning wines produced. The Winery has been a contributor to the economy and as a visitor site of the Ojai Valley since 1981.The greatest attention to quality and detail are forefront to our winemaking process. The winery focus now are wines of Southern France, Spain, and Italy.

The Winery is open Daily from 11am to 5pm.

The Winery is located on the Old Creek Ranch. The Ranch is part of a Spanish 22,000 acre land grant awarded to Don Fernando Tico, dating back to the early history of California. In the late 1800′s Antonio Riva of northern Italy purchased the ranch. He was a chef in Paris, London and later in San Francisco. He built a winery on the ranch at that time.Today the original winery still stands and has been depicted as the logo and on the label of previous wines. At that time, wines were made without electricity and utilized gravity as a means to move the wine in the processing. Riva produced wine until about 1942, including the prohibition years. Wine purchasers would leave an order and money on the clothesline and would return later to pickup a jug of red wine left at the base of an oak tree. On one occasion he was warned the FBI was coming to raid the winery. All wine beyond what was legal for one family to produce was dumped prior to their arrival.

In 1976 the Maitland’s purchased the property with the intention of revitalizing the old ranch. A couple of years later they were approached to start a new winery on the property. In 1981 the first vintage was introduced. Many award-winning wines were to follow.As of 2007, Michael Meagher has been in charge of the winemaking. He has been making his own wines at the ranch since 2004 under his label, Vino V Wines.A vineyard of 20 acres was planted during the 1980′s. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc were produced. Sadly, the vineyard fell prey to the bacterium that causes Pierce’s Disease. Plans are now being developed for a new vineyard at the top of the Ranch that will distance the grapes from the insects that transmit the disease.The Winery now out sources grapes. We now lease portions of premier vineyards, Branham Obsidian Vineyard (Napa), and from Santa Barbara County, Stolpman Vineyards, Sanford Benedict Vineyard, White Hawk Vineyard, Vogelzang Vineyard, and Estelle Vineyard.

In the meantime, today the ranch is an 850-acre cattle ranch with a winery, and fruit orchards. We have planted at the entrance to the ranch an orchard of five varieties of cherry trees, and are extending the orchard with a variety of Japanese plums. A small blackberry patch also has been established.

 

A Great Review for Rolling Thunder !!! YEY

So idyllic, its almost like being on a movie set!!”
Rolling Thunder Ranch

5 of 5 stars*****
My husband & I are always looking for new and unique experiences and accommodations when we travel. We usually spend a great deal of time & money to find them. That is why we were shocked when we discovered this magnificent paradise less than a two hour drive from home!!!! The Rolling Thunder Ranch is so idyllic, its almost like like being on a movie set! You’ll think you died and went to heaven! It is so peaceful and serene that one can’t help but instantly fall under its spell, and completely relax. For us, it will always hold a special place in our hearts because it is the last place we took our precious 14-year old Lab before he passed away. He had an absolute blast running around freely and exploring the entire property. It was a truly magical vacation for us all. Jerry & Lisa have worked to create the most spectacular vacation rentals I’ve ever seen. We can’t wait to return!!

“The World’s Greatest Outdoor Bookstore”

Their website saysccand perhaps it is. There aren’t too many outdoor bookstores on the Planet Earth. I certainly recommend checking it out if you are in the neighborhood of Ojai, California. Very cool indeed. You may even spy a “celebrity” or two while there. They have a huge supply of books ranging from the 35 cent  honor system books that line the bookshelves out on the sidewalk to rare out-of-print first editions.

Bart’s Books, nestled under the 420 year old coastal live oaktree at the corner of Matilija and Canada streets in Ojai, CA, is the home to the largest independently owned and operated outdoor bookstore in the U.S.A.

In 1964 Bart’s Books was little more than a sparkle in the eye of Richard Bartinsdale whose collection of books had gotten so overwhelming that he constructed a series of book cases along the sidewalk so that passersby could peruse the titles.

In lieu of a cash register, “Bart” left coffee cans atop the book cases. People would select a title or two and leave payment in the cans, giving birth to Bart’s world famous tradition of selling books via the honor system.

Since that time Bart’s Books has become host to nearly one million books ranging from the thirty-five cent specials which line the outside walls and are still for sale on the honor system, to rare, out of print first editions, and art books (like Dali’s Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland) valued in the thousands of dollars.

Currently Dave Ray is Bart’s Books bookseller extraordinaire. With his unique blend of expertise, vim, and pure passion for the art of the written word, he brings new life to what The Times calls “an intellectual haven.”

Nearly half a century after its inception, Bart’s Books continues to mystify patrons, journalists, and book lovers with a character and charm that beggars description and a selection of books that is beyond compare.

 

Ojai Best Fresh Catch!

 Freshod in Ojai, Fresh, Fresh Fsh Market, Restaurant and Sushi & Oyster Bar.

In August of 1985  they opened their doors in Ojai, California, September of 1998, In Thousand Oaks, California, and Channel Island Harbor July of 2000. But the story began long before this.

In 1963 when Bill Sutton, one of the owners, was only seven,, his Dad took him on a fishing trip. From that day forward he was “hooked”. Bill as a small boy would have his Mom drop him off, and pick him up from the pier, where he fished all of his spare time. Bill brought his small catch home, and with red wagon in tow, marketed his catch to the local neighbors. This was the beginning of it all. Bill then worked on sport fishing boats part time while in school and after graduating from high school in 1972, went to work on commercial fishing boats that fished up and down the Pacific Coast.

The place is casual & the service is excellent.  Wine list is fun too!

 

Hand Crafted Ojai Ice Cream & Wine ?

If you are a sweets person & will travel for something absolutely decadent & one of a kind. Ojai Ice Cream is worth the whole trip. The Ice cream & Sweets shop has been in downtown Ojai for over 20 years & owned by the same family all these years. I think the best part is when you walk in the door you are literally punched he face with the overwhelming aromas of sweet waffaly,creamy,sugar coated goodness. I swear it happens everytime without fail!!  The local simpleness of the whole environment is so down-home & it feels as if you are in a Hansel & Gretel movie. daily and with secret recipes. The texture of the ice cream is softer & creamer than your typical  gourmet creams. They have fantastic flavors that complement the seasons of Ojai like Ojai Orange in the Summer & Lovely Lavender during our Annual Lavender Festival n Late Summer. My Favorite is there Pumpkin Spice  made in October any Pupkin you have tasted PURE PUMPIN PIE. Oh my  traditional flavors like the best Rum Raisin you’ve ever tasted and Drk Chocolate, a super Vanilla Bean, Mint Chip oh and a very chunky & festive Bubble Gum the kids will do Fairy Flips for. The sweet creams come on a variety of handmade huge Waffle cones that can be dipped in Chocolate then dipped in sprinkles. If Ice Cream is not your thing try there handmade Fudge with delightful flavors. It doesn’t hurt tha Casa Baranca Winery is right next door! what could be better that Ice Cream & Wine!!! Good Lord Sweet Jesus life up here in Ojai is so creammmmy sweet !!
