Visiting Oak Family Vineyard & Ranch Estate

Visiting the Vineyard

Oak Family Vineyard & Ranch Estate Family welcomes you to join us at our Cozy Grape Juice Tasting room — sorry no wine — that over looks the valley and view of Lake Cecil. Take a tour of the Vineyard and Operation, or grab a bunch and bring your picnic to enjoy the fresh mountain air. Taste the flavors of a variety of grape juices, grape juice blends, and grape juice non-alcoholic beverages. A place for the whole family. Or enjoy our adult only private areas and lookouts when you want to get away from the kids for a little while.

Grape Juice Tasting Room is open 10:00 am - 6:00 pm Monday through Thursday, and until 9:00 pm Friday & Saturday.

Private parties, and longer hours, can be booked. Call us for more information and pricing.

Oak Family Vineyard & Ranch Estates also invites you to enjoy the plentiful offerings of the land. We have walking and hiking tours of the area for birdwatching, plant lovers, tree enthusiasts, and just plain exercise. The Estate has 8700 acres of natural undeveloped land where you can camp, explore, and catch a concert by some well known, and not so well known artists; the Yuba River offers rafting, kayaking, swimming, and fishing. There is something for the whole family — including having your wedding at our Estate.

Rules, Policies, and Regulations

Oak Family Vineyard & Ranch Estate is a family affair; therefore we have a strict “no-smoking” policy anywhere on the 71,965 acres — you will be subjected to fines, removal, and banning from the property for any and all events. This is private property and we have the ability to police and hand out fines — we are friendly and cordial, but take advantage and break rules you will see the business side of us.

A love for all animals

Oak Family Vineyard & Ranch Estate has a love for animals, all animals, therefore all pets brought to the property are to be leashed when outside your vehicle; this is due to complications with our abundant wild life — remember we are a natural perserve and there are bears, mountain lions, and other dangerous animals that roam free, and have been known to enter campsites, the vineyard, and other populated areas; our rangers are there to protect both the animal and you, a loose dog or cat always escalates trouble. [leash your animals]

This is not a real location; it is created for the movies Petite Chardonnay (2012) & Chardonnay.
