Strey Cellars is latest addition to Ventura County wineries. Open February 2014, owner operators Scott Ballew and Katie Wiegers dare to provide a super contemporary twist to wine tasting. Far from traditional; their cool, edgy winery experience is coupled by no less than great wine!
The idea is to “stray from the norm.” Strey embraces the industrial look and feel of the neighborhood and takes “modern” to the next level. The vibe is fresh and sleek with clicks and pops of color. Concrete counters, cider block walls and 18′ ceilings leave you feeling far from cold the moment you stride through the door. You are sure to be greeted with the warmest of welcomes. It goes without saying Scott and Katie have poured their hearts and souls into giving locals and visitors alike a wine tasting experience unparalleled!
Don’t let youth fool you; Scott is a killer winemaker. With a soft spot for Zinfandel, it is a no-brainer that the Lodi Appellation is the source for most of his first-class fruit. Single red varietals prove to be the specialty at Strey but are in no way limiting to the types of wine Scott thirsts to share with local and visiting wine enthusiasts alike. Katie completes the pair by doing everything else: From demo to design and construction; budgeting to bookkeeping and events planning; website and social media management this vigorous young lady never stops! (She even ordered the kitchen sink. Lol) By weekday the film industry calls this dynamic duo to work; by weekend they are sure to be your new best friends, making wine and serving it straight up with no frills.
