The California Welcome Center of Oxnard joins forces with the Ventura County Wine Trail to give visitors a sneak peak into Ventura County's wine industry. Using an automated wine-tasting area inside the center, guests sip from a choice of 13 wines, fermented by leading area purveyors using sourced grapes from several prominent California growing regions. Attendees also have the opportunity to meet and greet with the winemakers themselves.
Ventura County Wine Trail
Ventura County Wine Trail is lined by 20 unique wineries. For example, Sunland Vintage evokes an Old-World atmosphere, whereas Plan B Wine Cellars serves wines in an industrial-chic space. The path, however, is not limited to fine wine and winery tours. It also features lodging and fine dining. And, if guests are interested in more than imbibing, they can check out nearby outlet stores, museums, and local alpaca parks. Wineries from the trail often host tastings at centralized locations such as California Welcome Center Oxnard, whose sleek tasting room is equipped with an automated tasting machine.
