Navarro Vineyards was founded in 1973 by Ted Bennett and Deborah Cahn. In the early seventies, Ted and Deborah were searching for a perfect place to grow Gewürztraminer and settled on a 900 acre sheep ranch in the Anderson Valley. The ranch has a rugged terrain and climate similar to Alsace which promised that the grapes would ripen late in the growing season with tart acidity. During the last forty + years they have planted about 120 acres of grapes. As well as their beloved Gewürztraminer, Navarro grows estate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Muscat Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc. Ted and Deborah have been joined by their grown children, Aaron and Sarah Cahn Bennett, who are actively involved in the family business
Vinemark Cellars Winemaker Mark Wasserman grew up watching his grandfather, Papa Joe, make wine in his basement in Ontario, California for friends and family to enjoy. It was only fitting that later in his life, Mark would set out to honor his grandfather's legacy by crafting wines from premium select vineyards throughout California, including vineyards in Santa Ynez, Paso Robles, Monterey and Napa Valley. Mark believes that wine is made in the vineyard, and not limiting himself to an Estate vineyard gives him the opportunity to source fruit with the best varietal characters. Rather than forcing himself to fit a set style of wine, Mark lets the vineyards express their fruit forward flavors and attributes. By not over-extracting or overpowering the wines in the cellar, Mark is pleased to offer wines with bold fruit, complexity and delightfully balanced tannins.
ONEHOPE was founded by eight friends with a lofty vision: to create exceptional products that inspire people to indulge while doing good. We were in our early 20s, passionate enough to work hard and just naive enough to not be scared. We loaded up our cars, hit the streets and started selling the 168 cases of wine we had in a public storage unit.
In 2009, a gentleman named Michael introduced himself at a trade show and wanted to help us. We later discovered it was Michael Mondavi, of the iconic Mondavi Wine family. His son Rob Mondavi Jr. has been our primary consulting winemaker ever since.
People may buy our wine the first time because of what we stand for, but they continue to come back because the wine is great. Our commitment to quality wine is as important as our commitment to the causes we support.
To date we have made more than $2 million* in donations, providing over 2,600* clinical trials for cancer patients, 13,000* forever homes for shelter animals, 1.1* million meals for children, 33,000 life-saving vaccines and much more.
We are proud of the impact we’ve been able to make and grateful to our supporters who give us the opportunity to continue. If you have ever purchased ONEHOPE products, or even told our story, you’re part of something bigger than a brand. You’re part of a movement to make giving back part of what you do every day.
Thank you for being part of the movement and making the world a better place.
There is something special about beer. Something uniquely intrinsic about its nature that brings people together to celebrate life, feats of strength and the honor earned from a hard day's work.
So take hold of your glass, and raise it high. Here's to you. Here's to the day. And here's to the glory and the power of beer.
Enegren Brewing Company started in the dorm rooms of Loyola Marymount University where Brew Captain Chris Enegren brewed his first batches with extract on a friend's on-campus apartment stove. Chris quickly outgrew his stovetop setup and designed and built a 10-gallon all grain system that summer. At this point he had moved out of the dorms and into a house off campus where his younger brother Matt joined in brewing. As a side note this may be the first civilized meeting of the two brothers in the 18 years they had been around one another. They brewed together for a year with help from several friends before they had to move the brewery. Enter Brew Chief Joe Nascenzi. Joe and Chris played on the LMU Lacrosse team together and when Joe heard that Chris was looking for a place to relocate the brewery, he gladly offered up his backyard and garage. Thus the three EBC crew were formed.
After graduation, the 10 gallon brewery moved back to the Enegren family residence in Moorpark California where it got a complete overhaul and became an automated brewery. The goal then was create a brewery where we could repeat our batches with reasonable consistency in order to finalize recipes with the hopes of a commercial brewing future. Then one morning as the three of us were just finishing up an all night double brew, we realized that if we were going to put so much time and money into brewing, we might as well go for our commercial dreams.
And so we created our commercial brewery. We moved to a custom 3-barrel brewery in designed by Chris and built by Premier Stainless in San Diego. We opened on July 31st 2011 with two beers on tap - Valkyrie Altbier and Protector IPA. We soon expanded to additional seasonal brews, various special releases and several barrel aged brews.
We soon reached our max capacity at this small 3-BBL brewery and in 2013 began planning a new 15-barrel brewery in a new, larger location in Moorpark.
On January 24th, 2015 we opened our new 15 barrel brewery a block away from our old brewery. This new brewery increased our capacity by over 5 times with room to grow over the next few years. We also expanded our tasting room, added more taps, and expanded our distribution around the community. Currently we're ramping up production and working toward additional fermentation capacity.
Cantara Cellars began in 2002 as a private winery at Mike and Chris Brown’s Moorpark home. With their home located in the “Cantara” section of the Serenata development it only seemed fitting to name it “Cantara Cellars”.
Beginning with just 250 pounds of Chardonnay hand harvested from Mike’s parent’s vineyards in Lodi California, they fermented their first 18 gallons of wine! Over the next five years they carefully selected additional wine grape sources, increased their knowledge of winemaking, refined their wine style, expanded grape varieties, and increased production. This culminated with the opening of a public tasting room in October 2007.
The winery has consistently grown and now harvests more than 50 tons of 10 varietals each fall.
The Vineyards at Saddlerock Ranch:
Perfectly positioned at the crest of the Santa Monica Mountains, the vineyards are quite unique: The rocky terrain and steep south facing slopes provide the perfect environment for growing premium wine grapes. Planting started in 1997 with 14 acres of Cabernet and Merlot. Today the hillside vineyards consist of approximately 80,000 vines on 85 acres with eight varietals and are well on the way to reaching a goal of 100 acres. Varietals planted are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Mouvedre, Grenache, Viognier and Malbec.
The fascinating history of the property dates back some 300 years when the vast expanse of land surrounding the Santa Monica Mountains was part of the original Spanish Land Grant. The 200,000-acre site is a perfect spot for raising sheep and cattle. Up until the 1930s the area was known as El Malibu. Local caves are still covered with pictographs painted by the Chumash Indians, which date back to the Portola Expedition of 1769. These pictographs have become very rare due to erosion and weathering, but some of the most well preserved examples remain on the Saddlerock Ranch property and have been studied by archeologists and photographed for books. Today, Ron and Lisa Semler live at Saddlerock Ranch with their 9 children, as they have since the 1970s.
Malibu Family Wines The Brands:
Semler: 100% estate grown in Malibu’s own Saddle Rock – Malibu AVA featuring Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Malbec, Mourvedre and Viognier. Semler wines have their own Saddle Rock–Malibu AVA.
Saddlerock: California and Central Coast appellation varietals of Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon Pinot Noir, Rose, Sparkling Brut, Sauvignon Blanc, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Orange Muscat, Zinfandel, and Old Vine Tawny.

We came to be winery owners and winemakers by going a little overboard in our quest for enjoyable wine tasting experiences. We were pretty serious wine “geeks” for at least 10 years before we switched from the “tasting” side of the bar to the winemaker side. We knew what we loved about wine, as well as a few things we didn’t like, and we work hard to keep the fun side foremost. Much has changed since our first vintage, and we’ve learned a lot, but we have never lost sight of our goal….”make the best wine we can, and make visiting the winery and tasting the wine as enjoyable as possible.”
What Socially Appealing Beverage is Available for Non Drinkers?
There is a new and exciting product for non-drinkers, light drinkers and drinker’s alike—non-alcoholic, healthy elixir. We understand that non-drinkers sometimes seem like the odd person at a party or gathering where most everyone is drinking alcohol. The crowd may see you as boring or awkward and not fitting in with most of the other guests at a gathering. The truth is that many non-drinkers have chosen not to drink for health reasons and answering each person who questions you about why you are not drinking can be very exhausting and embarrassing to some people.
Blüm Beverages are non-alcoholic, healthy elixirs from natural botanicals with superb flavor, color and taste for the sophisticated non-drinker. The packaging could fool anyone because it looks like a very nice bottle of wine. Both the Uplift Blend and the Zen Blend, when served in a drink glass or a wine glass appear like regular wine with an extraordinary flavor.
This is not only the answer to non-drinkers at social gatherings. Some people are light drinkers and only consume one or two alcoholic beverages but then want to have transition drinks. Blüm Beverages come into play for this scenario also as a transition drink for light drinkers. A person can continue to have drinks of this extraordinary wine, without other people in the social circle realizing that it is alcohol free.
Blüm Beverages are so tasty that drinkers love to add clear spirits to it and use it as a very healthy mixer. Other mixers, such as soda, or juices are loaded with calories, sugar, dyes, and artificial sweeteners and seem to weigh your drinks down. This tasteful non-alcoholic wine is very smooth when used as a mixer and it adds all the flavor you want to a drink without the unhealthy benefits of heavy mixers. When using it as a mixer you can add different garnishes such as lemon, lime, strawberries or any fruit of your choosing to make a decadent drink that is still healthy.
This healthy alternative to alcoholic wine can reduce your risk of heart disease, lower your cholesterol and reduce your risk of having a stroke when you consume it rather drinking beverages with alcohol in it.
Blüm Beverages are the perfect pairing with all of your appetizers and dishes when you are having a dinner party. This is a great product to stock for your next party that you are hosting to give everyone a choice of a delicious beverage like a full-bodied wine without the guilt.

We Olive Thousand Oaks, located in The Oaks Mall, is one of eleven We Olive stores that specializes in California Certified Extra Virgin Olive Oil, artisan produced food products and tasteful gifts. Opened in Spring 2013 by Alan and Pam Davis and their son, Josh, We Olive at the Oaks is home to the third wine bar in the We Olive family. Here, The Davis Family shares with us their We Olive story and what to expect from a visit to We Olive & Wine Bar at the Oaks.
We enjoyed both the products and the overall experience at the We Olive stores we had visited, so much so that we decided to open a new one near our home. After decades of working at jobs vs. something we were passionate about, we decided to take the leap and start this new venture.
There are two things that we really enjoy about our We Olive store. One is being able to introduce and educate people about the wonderful California olive oils. The other is getting to meet people from a great diversity of backgrounds and cultures.
We strive to be honest and caring with all of our guests. Those that come in regularly seem to enjoy that we will try to meet their needs however we can, and try to maintain a personal commitment.
We Olive Garlic Olive Oil and Aged Balsamic are by far the best selling products. Our guests can’t seem to get enough! We also have a lot of gift shoppers so our home goods such as platters and wall art have also been very popular in the store.
Personally, we love the We Olive Mission Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the Blackberry Balsamic Vinegar, as well as the Parmesan-Asiago Dip and the Wasabi Sake Mustard…any of the mustards really!
We tell all of our guests to try making a vinaigrette with Blackberry Balsamic Vinegar and either Basil or Lemon Olive Oil, and then Pineapple White Balsamic Vinegar with Jalapeno Olive Oil. We also love suggesting Peach White Balsamic Vinegar to flavor sparkling water or plain yogurt!We have had some wonderful tips from our guests including using Lemon Olive Oil in recipes for cookies or cakes, and using Smoked Olive Oil with Pineapple White Balsamic Vinegar as a sauce for pulled pork.
We Olive Thousand Oaks is a located on an outdoor corner of a large regional shopping mall, but we are able to maintain the feel of a small family-style business with personal attention…because that is what we are. Our guests seem to enjoy that, and we sure enjoy them! We try to go the extra mile to provide the services our guests want. We love to assemble custom-order gift baskets and boxes, and take pride in some beautiful and unique ensembles that we have arranged. We are always eager to offer suggestion, advice, or information about our products, but we try to recognize that sometimes our guests would just like to comfortably browse and enjoy the tasting experience.
