Likha Wine, Chai's Vineyard Cabernet Franc

Likha Wine, Chai's Vineyard Cabernet Franc


Rare and limited magnums of the inaugural vintage of Likha Wine Company, based out of the Pacific-influenced Ballard Canyon AVA in Santa Barbara. These magnums will feature a special hand-designed label art by co-founder Jhonel Faelnar to be delivered at a later date in late 2023 or early 2024, after bottling. 


This winery was founded by two ARK supporters, Chai Ooi and Jhonel Faelnar, who serendipitously met at the ARK Evening in Manila gala in 2016. "Likha" in Filipino and in Sanskrit means "to create”. Inspired by their wine soaked adventures, they decided to work together to create this new micro-winery focused on a small limestone plot at the top of Ballard Canyon, aptly named "Chai's Vineyard”. Planted to 35 rows split between Cabernet Franc, Syrah, and Viognier, Jhonel and Chai are starting their organic winemaking journey strong with these two distinctive wines that truly signify collaboration and creation.
