We really didnt like this winery. It is pretty difficult to find wineries thought the Southeast and its really difficult to find a great one. So we are always pretty excited if we find a decent place to enjoy a good tasting. The service at Ozan was poor, with the staff seemingly having other places to be. The atmosphere is really cool. Its like a Tuscany home in the middle of Alabama. Overall, the place just seems to take itself too seriously. They charge a fair amount of money for a tasting but at least you get a glass (the one youre drinking out of). Wine is subjective but out of the three of us noone enjoyed what Ozan had to offer. We had just left another local winery in the Birmingham area and had a much better experience both with flavor and staff. I dont think we will return. All three in our party have significant experience with wineries in Virginia and have been to as many as we can find in the Southeast. Unfortunately, were still in search for our favorite in Alabama.
This business is not as it seems. I recant my, Belinda T-Norris, rating from October, 2015. My daughter ,Mariah Tripp Mobley / Cyrus Mobley had their wedding reception 10/17/15 & some of our deposit was kept, so I took Ozan to Small Claims Court. It was transferred to Shelby Co. Court & the judge RULED IN OUR FAVOR as the plantiff. So Ozan has to pay us back the $50 balance Paige Blake , tastingroom mrg kept and court cost that was granted back in January, 2016. I am still waiting on my money, as the clock ticks. Check out my fb page for view of court order, @ Belinda T-Norris . They OWE Me, take b4, during & after pics if u choose to use this VENUE. Jus video the entire thing, from the time u meet her.
Atmosphere: Seemed unwelcomed and rude. Wine: They had a variety of the same tasting wine. They were very strong and not tasteful (in my opinion). Decor: The decor was amazing, loved how they have arranged the place. People who need accomendation: Where the vineyard is located you will need to make sure you park at the very top of the hill. Its a very steep hill for those who have walkers, canes, crutches, or anything in that nature. I will not come again to this particular vineyard. The Morgan Creek Vineyard had a better atmosphere and wines.
We went there today for our 30th anniversary which is tomorrow and had a great time! Its a cute little place and our guide was awesome. She told us about the history and how things are made - nobody was rude at all. There were about six other couples as well and even they seemed to be having a good time. Well definitely be going back, only next time taking our out of town guests with us!
It seems like couples are not welcomed only large groups! Waited 20 mins and we were ignored. Rude people! I made the mistake and asked if they had anything sweet that they could recommend and the waiter sarcastically responded we are out of sugar packet! Went down to the next winery in Alabaster Vizzini and bought 6 bottles of wine a good experience!
Just tried a bottle of the peach. All I can say is Alabama wines are terrible. My wife said it tasted like kerosene! Another awfull wine I had was from somewhere around Talladega. It is too bad since I live in Bama. My favorite is muscadine made by Duplin Vineyards of North Carolina.
Wife and her best friend went for a tour, tasting, & cheese plate deal on Groupon. They were absolutely blown away and had an awesome time. She said they are also distilling vodka and whiskey, so I may have to accompany her next time! Great gift idea for your ladies, fellas!
Awesome wines, awesome people, awesome atmosphere!!! We visit every chance we get, and are looking forward to the next time we get to stop in.
Lovely experience! Late winter visit, all to ourselves. Mr. Smith was a great host, informative and witty! Loved all the wines!
Very informative. A nice treat for a couple. Probably a good place for a girls day out.
Great place great atmosphere friendly gentleman good wines will stop again
Absolutely GREAT. It was very relaxing and we just love the atmosphere!
