Food & Wine
The flavors of Ojai are fresh and organic!
The year-round Mediterranean climate of the Ojai Valley makes it ideal for growing organic produce, citrus, olives, nuts and lavender. Many of these locally grown ingredients and flavors are infused in the creative cuisine at our bistros and award-winning restaurants.
