The Ojai Vineyard Grows
The Ojai Vineyard wine enthusiasts now will have plenty of elbowroom to swirl their glasses as the vineyard opens its new, larger tasting room in January. It will feature the award-winning Central Coast wines of Adam Tolmach, who has made wine in the Ojai Valley for 30 years. Immediately adjacent to the original 300-square-foot tasting room on Montgomery Street in downtown Ojai, the new space is 1,500 square feet, with 70 linear feet of bar space, newly stained and polished concrete floors, and an expanded patio area with table seating out front.
Tolmach wants the focus to be on education, so visitors can expect to see displays that will highlight the region, the winemaking process and the winery's history. Wine education classes and wine club events will be offered, and expanded tasting options will include opportunities to taste library varietals.
