The Old Bob Woolever's Tire Shop was vacant and abandoned, looking like a sad scar in the downtown "Funk Zone." We swung by one night on the way to dinner and thought the space looked mighty enticing. After a dinner drink or two, we returned to the old shop and sat in the parking lot for about an hour. With Santa Barbara Winery right across the street and Craig Jaffurs just around the corner, it seemed ideal. A phone call to a few friends filled the place up quicker than you can say "rotate the tires," and Cellar 205 was born (now Oreana Winery). The tire shop had some great winemaking attributes including lots of electric power concrete floors and a brick structure that is ideal for climate control and barrel storage.

Nearly nine years later Oreana Winery is known for two things - great wines and fabulous parties. From small batches of Pinot Noir to our sizeable Red Table Wine, Oreana has a wine for everyone. Current production is about 10,000 cases but some lots are as small as 20 cases. Our award winning Pinot program and Sparkling wines continue to generate rave reviews from Wine Spectator, the Wall Street Journal and Wine Enthusiast.      

We are never too busy to have a good time and all that time spent listening to the grape press and waiting for wine to age gives us lots of opportunities to come up with weird ideas for parties. Previous celebrations have included: The Beaver Moon Harvest Party, the annual Hangover Hat Day Extravaganza, and one time when a guy just played the bagpipes.
