The agricultural experts at Lone Oak Winery keep oenophiles wondering with their odds-defying arbor of red wines that emerge from the difficult-but-rewarding Texan landscape. In casual, hour-long wine classes, up to six sidle up to a table and sit in rapt attention as 20-year vine veteran Joye Cooksey imparts lessons in some of the subtler aspects of tippling, like how to pair sips and sups, and the difference between fine wine and poor vinegar. Classes are customized to student's particular curiosities, and each lesson is enriched with a complimentary selection of authentic Italian hors d'oeuvres.

Lost Oak Winery

Gene Estes suspects that growing up in the "dry" precinct of Abilene, Texas, may have inspired his alcohol-based ingenuity; he crafted his first batch of wine from Concord grape juice when he was just 23. Years later, after holding various pharmaceutical jobs and putting to use his Masters in Microbiology, Estes's interest in wine re-emerged with a full and passionate force. Today, as the president and vintner of Lost Oak Winery, Gene works alongside resident winemaker Jim Evans to craft a host of award-winning wines. Among them is the 2012 Viognier, which scored a double gold in the renowned San Francisco Chronicle International Wine competition—meaning all five judges awarded the varietal with top scores before gilding the bottle twice in molten gold.

The winery itself offers both guided and self-guided tours, offering visitors a glimpse into the wine-making process complete with samples straight from oak barrels. Additionally, special events draw guests to the lush grounds for live music and wine club events.

Angela guided our tour & was easygoing yet very confident about her knowledge of wine production & the vineyard itself. The grounds are very picturesque for afternoon with a cheese platter! I will be back in the spring!

My group of four ladies had an awesome time. The tour was very informative and we even lucked out when we were in the fermentation room the Owner and the Vintner came in and talked and answered questions. Then we went back to the tasting room. Great wine tasting. They have also built a lovely pavillon for weddings, etc. We will definitely go back.
