We’d love for you to drop by and try our wines—and see our truly unique tasting room.
The Oak Ridge Winery tasting facility is located inside a beautiful 50,000 gallon California redwood tank. As a tank, it’s so big that earlier owners gave it the name of Das Weinhaus or “The Wine House.” As a tasting room, it makes a very cozy place in which to enjoy the wide variety of Oak Ridge Winery wines.
The tank was first used for wine storage by the Roma Wine Company when it reopened shortly after the repeal of the national Prohibition law in the 1930s. It was then used by the Mid-Valley Winery until 1964.
In early 1965 the Royal Host Cellars of the East-Side Winery made plans for a “Tasting Room,” and the tank was purchased from the Mid-Valley Winery and re-erected in its present location. The floor, staves, and top of the tank are original. The doors, windows, and roof were added at that time.
