I organised a group visit with Michael via phone/email. He was easy to work with and was very gracious when we turned up on the day, especially since we had reduced in number. He was busy working out in the fields, but came over to say hello and give us some background on the winery, introduced us to the dogs, showed us the picnic tables he had set out with tablecloths, and let us know that Claudia was waiting in the tasting room for us when we were ready.

Claudia was very informative and easy to work with, a great sense of humour, and helped us all understand the wine tasting process. Some of us were new to it and needed a little more explanation than the rest and she was very helpful. The wines were fantastic. Quite a few of us bought bottles to take home, especially one of the reds (2nd last on the list can't remember the name of it).

The area is beautiful, with a lawn and picnic tables, or a deck with tables and chairs. The dogs are very friendly and want to play ball with you. Jasper the disabled dog was a joy to watch as he rolled on his back in the sunshine. Dog people are always kind hearted, and Michael and his co-workers are definitely dog people. Running a great winery, making great wine, and sharing their special place in the world with others. Visit. You will have a great experience!

Myself and some friends spent a few days in Ojai and decided to try wine tasting. Thank goodness we checked out The Old Creek Ranch! Michael(the wine maker) was there to talk us through all of the wines that he creates, all of which were delicious. He's a great guy too, both welcoming and very interesting. The ranch is in such a beautiful spot, I really didn't want to leave!

Great tasting experience and very knowledgeable staff. The wines are a good selection of the varietals in the Ventura valley. It's rustic and so authentic too! Met some friendly locals who were equally enthralled with the wines.

It was nice to stop in and try new wines, the grounds were beautiful and relaxing it made for a great picnic. It is always nice to see my old friend (Rich B.) who works in the tasting room.

Nice tasting at Old Creek with Andrew. Mellow atmosphere, nice wine, good conversation and super close to Ventura. Moto Vino tshirts are cool, too.
