Nurturing Nature’s Bounty

Black Oak Mountain Vineyards is a haven for grapevines and a sanctuary for an array of fruit trees, each bearing testament to our commitment to organic abundance.

Among the rolling hills of our estate, you’ll find 24 olive trees with succulent fruit awaiting harvest. Alongside these olives, a symphony of citrus trees—lemons, limes, mandarins—add their vibrant hues and zesty flavors to the landscape. But our orchard doesn’t stop there. Asian pear, cherry, and nectarine trees contribute to the cornucopia of flavors that grace our tables. And let’s not forget the fig trees, their velvety leaves sheltering sweet gems of ripening fruit.

Amidst the arid landscape, drought-resistant flora thrives, from majestic Birds of Paradise to resilient Palo Verde Trees. Pin Cushion Cactus and Yucca punctuate the scenery with striking silhouettes, while Queen Palms and Butia Palms sway gracefully in the breeze.

Championing Bee Conservation

At Black Oak Mountain Vineyards, our dedication to ecological stewardship extends beyond the vineyards to the buzzing world of bees. Throughout the year, we nurture vibrant colonies of bees, ensuring their well-being and vitality.

During the winter months, when temperatures drop, we transport our bees southward to warmer climates, safeguarding them from the harsh cold. As spring approaches, we welcome them back to our vineyards, where they play a crucial role in pollinating our crops and contributing to the rich tapestry of biodiversity.

But our involvement with bees doesn’t stop there. Through our sister company, Ellusionist, renowned for its captivating magic decks, we’ve leveraged our platform to raise awareness and support for bee conservation. The Bee decks, adorned with stunning artwork inspired by these industrious pollinators, delight card enthusiasts and serve a greater purpose. A percentage of the profits from these decks goes towards the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) to aid in saving the bees. Our collaborative efforts have contributed approximately $35,000 to $40,000 towards this vital cause, underscoring our unwavering commitment to preserving the natural world.

A Wedding Day Unplugged

While some couples opt to craft the ideal wedding hashtag, stream their ceremony from above using drones, or even enlist robots to serve beverages at the reception, others are steering clear of such technological frills. While incorporating technology can add a playful element, it also has the potential to detract from the genuine sentiment of the occasion.

This is why an increasing number of couples are embracing the concept of an unplugged wedding ceremony. According to our First Look Report findings, 75% of couples elect to go unplugged in 2024. The decision to implement a phone ban ultimately rests with the couple themselves—it’s their special day. Here, we weigh the advantages and disadvantages of hosting an unplugged event.
