Our goal is to produce full-bodied, vineyard-driven wines that are true to their varietal character. Although the current industry trend is to move toward lighter, “easy-drinking” wines, there is still a place in our hearts for big, full-bodied red wines! This is a goal, but not always the end result. Tradition and dogma are important, but so are innovation, creativity, and variety. We are still waiting to see what the “previously-avocado-grove” terroir produces in the long run, but the aim to produce enjoyable and hopefully complex wines from great grapes grown with TLC.
Rules? Who needs rules? Weather and other factors are usually beyond our control, so we work with what he have! It’s definitely a work in progress and we hope you get a chance to share in the “fruits” of our labors. Cheers!

Toasted Oak Winery is a mom and pop operation that began as a retirement hobby. Roger and Marcia bought the burned-out parcel that would become their vineyard in 2008, naming their future winery after the one surviving tree on the property, a “toasted” oak tree. Nine years later, after clearing, planting the vines, and building the winery, they were able to open their tasting room for business.
We are open for outdoor tastings on our patio Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 1:00 to 6:00 pm. You’re welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy with the wine!
