Barely got in the door and we were told we had to get out because we had our 3 yr. old with us. Children are not allowed in wine tasting rooms, they said. Funny, I've had him in wine tasting rooms all over CA, including this city, and many other states. We weren't up at the bar, we were in... More

Stopped by today and had a great experience. Faye is a delightful and knowledgeable proprietor who also went above and beyond when we bought a gift for a friend of one of their terrific signs, and she wrapped it complete with bow! We tasted 10 red wines between us. we also learned about the areas they came from and the... More

Cute historic building. $10 tasting fee per person. Servers were friendly even though it was crowded. Overall the bottles were very expensive and most of them not worth the price. We did however splurge on 2 bottles that were delicious. Would go just for a tasting and not plan on buying wines in the future.

Thank you George and Faye for the wonderful experience of your wine tasting experience. Yours is the utmost best I have tasted. From the ambience to your hospitality this was a worthwhile visit to Oxnard.

Faye gave plenty of information on how she and her husband produce their wines and she answered all inquiries. Very comfortable place. I looked around this historic building on Heritage Square and loved the building. Bought a couple of bottles of wine too. Do walk Heritage Square and see the historic buildings.

Faye and George are wonderful hosts and can teach you all about George's great red wines. Ask for my faves John's Zin and Mourvedre. You can do a self guided or docent tour of the park, which contains refurbished homes, chapel, water tower and other turn of the century structures once owned by pioneering families in Oxnard. Now these buildings... More

Did you know that Malibu is the gateway to Oxnard and Ventura County Wine Tasting? If you don't want to go up the hills you can get off Highway 1 in Oxnard and begin tasting at Rancho Ventavo. They're open Friday to Sunday 11 - 6 and most holidays also. If you want to try more wine ask Faye and... More

This is the most inviting winery we have ever been to. The owners, Faye and George make you feel like their home is your home. The winery is located in the historic section of Oxnard called Heritage Square. They have a nice porch to sit and enjoy your wine. It is a very peaceful setting. They only produce red wines... More

Tucked into one of the historical buildings of Oxnard's Heritage Square. You are welcomed by the friendly and knowledgeable owners, Faye and George, for a taste of their excellent red wines. George only produces reds because that's what he likes to drink. The best kept secret is that you can sit here (they have an upstairs room with tables) and... More

We have found this oasis tucked away in the historic heritage square in Oxnard. Located 5 blocks from the train station. Come sit and bask in the afternoon sun on it's tidy front porch and enjoy a great glass of wine. The winery works hand in hand with a fine Italian Restaraunt just a house away to provide tasty snacks... More
