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.
