Local beginnings! The Patrick’s operated the Alabaster Cash Store serving Shelby County residents groceries during the 40’s and 50’s. Residents purchased there groceries of the day by cash or on-credit, and they delivered them all over Central Alabama. With no internet, orders were received in person, by phone, or US mail, and the strongest thing they offered was soda!
With long family roots in Shelby County Burt Patrick started Ozan Winery and Vineyard, planting the first Norton vines. Bye 2005 the vines were ready and construction was complete. The name Ozan comes from the train station that originally was on our grounds in the late 1800’s. In 2009 we partnered with the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum to re-open the station and allow our guest to ride the train through a tour of the countryside, with originally six trains each season. We now run the train twice on Saturdays from March-November. In 2012, the winery expanded with the Oak Room and Yella Hound Distillery, featuring seven spirits. Ozan Winery today seamlessly blends history and innovation, offering train tours and diverse experiences for visitors.
For two decades, we’ve crafted a one-of-a-kind experience in Alabama, dedicated to creating a welcoming atmosphere for all. Join us Tues-Sun for a glass of wine, charcuterie, or a cocktail!
