Plan B Wine Cellars

Plan B Wine Cellars was begun because the owners, Marlow and Janis Barger took a leap of faith, deciding that looking back at life with regret was less desirable than taking a risk. “Several years of wine tasting up and down the west coast gave us a pretty good idea of what we liked about wine and the wine tasting experience,” Marlow stated. “We decided that rather than a traditional career trajectory, we would execute “Plan B” and experience the alternative by opening our own winery.” Now, Marlow and Janis share the duties of harvest, winemaking and the tasting room. “The opportunities for personal growth by challenging ourselves was a benefit we didn’t expect” says Janis, “every day brings challenges when you are a start-up business, and the wine business is particularly challenging, but we try to keep it fun and in perspective.”
Plan B Wine Cellars is a working winery located off Market Street in Mid-town Ventura. Come visit our winery to “experience the alternative” in wine tasting. A unique area with an industrial chic space, we offer wine tasting, wine by the glass or bottle, as well as private group tastings and events by appointment:
