Welcome to Misty Oaks Vineyard!
Award-winning Misty Oaks is a family owned and operated vineyard and winery located just west of Sutherlin in the Umpqua Valley appellation.
Owners Steve and Christy Simmons planted and now cultivate 15 acres, growing six varietals and producing their acclaimed wines at their own on-site winery. Named for the mists that hug the hills of the Tyee Range, often leaving only the tops of the gnarly oak trees visible, the vineyard is divided into distinctive growing areas where each unique grape variety can best thrive.
As the Simmons first tended their vineyards, they named these different blocks after some physical attribute or incident related to its development. As a tribute to these unique sites, each Misty Oaks wine is labeled with its own vineyard name. To that end the current offerings of wines crafted from the vineyard are: Gobbler’s Knob Red Blend, Constitution Ridge Pinot Blanc, Jones Road Cabernet Franc, Stuckagain Heights Pinot Noir, Julio’s Hill Pinot Gris, Friendswood Gewurtztraminer and Viper Trail Malbec.
Misty Oaks wines have received many awards and accolades, including the Greatest of the Grape’s only Platinum Award for their 2006 Stuckagain Heights Pinot Noir which has also earned Gold and Silver medals as well as the Grand Award of Excellence. The 2006 Gobblers Knob Red Blend was also honored with the Grand Award of Excellence. Most recently, the 2007 Jones Road Cabernet Franc was crowned Best in Show at the 2009 World of Wine.
