Old Oak Cellar specializes in Bordeaux-styles wines, which begins its production process in the Alexander Valley of Sonoma County. The wine is then shipped to the winery in Pasadena, where it’s stored in European, American, and French oak barrels while winemakers H. Paul Overholt and David Lustig, get to know the flavors. Old Oak wines are affordable and award-winning. Their winery offers tastings, a wine club, and monthly concerts in the barrel room as part of their “Cellar Sessions.” They are located at 2620-D East Foothill Boulevard in Pasadena.
