24th Annual Ojai Wine Festival

Lake Casitas Recreational Area, Ojai Valley


eld Sunday, June 13 at the Lake Casitas Recreational Area, the Ojai Wine Festival was organized by the Rotary Club of Ojai-West, an organization of business and professional leaders who provide local and international humanitarian services and encourage high ethical standards in all vocations. In addition to wine and beer tasting, the event featured a silent auction of fine wines, a raffle, boat rides on Lake Casitas, and musical entertainment. Guests enjoyed arts and crafts vendors and paired a variety of fine foods with wines from local vintners as well as some of California’s top producers. The Ojai Wine Festival is a major fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Ojai-West.
