“Expensive but a few great wines”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

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.

“Warm welcome, good wine!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Charming wine tasting room in a historical park!”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

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 house the tasting room, boutiques, offices, salon, community theater and restaurants. Friday nights in late June, all of July and the beginning of August there are free concerts in the square from 6-8pm, all kinds of great music. Tonight is R&B, previously there was big band, reggae and big band...If you go, say hi to all of my wine cousins!!! And walk around the block to 7th and Oxnard Blvd to Jesse's El Taco de Mexico for an authentic nibble! Or check out the other fine restaurants in downtown Oxnard.

“Got to stop here!”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

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 she'll point you in the right direction for your next tasting.
