For more than 30 years the Old Creek Ranch Winery has stayed in the Maitland family, bringing award-winning wines and a major contributor to the Ojai Valley wines since 1981. With a focus on the flavors of France, Spain and Italy, the wines found at Old Creek Ranch are certainly worth a tasting, making a trip to the Ranch a wonderfully romantic way to spend a day with your sweetheart.
More than 850 acres make up the Old Creek Ranch, and the majority of the wines created are Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc. There is also a wide variety of fruits and cattle grown on the ranch, with cherry trees, plums, peaches, pears, cherry plums, apples and peaches to be found. All of which are certified organic as well.
You will love a trip to Old Creek Ranch Winery any day of the week. Grab your sweetie and pack a picnic lunch.

You’ll love the scenic views and wonderful weather, while you delight in the romance of sipping your new favorite wine with your special someone.
You will want to make this trip extra-romantic, so be sure to pick up your date in the 2013 SL550 Roadster from Mercedes-Benz of Encino.
