About Tidewater Winery
Understanding the significance of Tidewater Winery requires a history lesson. Tidewater Oil Company—AKA Tydol—was a major US petroleum refining and marketing company for more than 80 years. In the early 1900s, the company built a large refinery in Drumright, which drove employees to move to the area and created the need for Tidal School. Built by John D. Rockefeller in the 1920s, the brick structure spans 8,000 square feet, including an outdoor deck, and it's listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Eventually, the refinery closed. Many families left the area, leaving behind some abandoned historic buildings—including the school.
Decades later, community members dreamt up a new life for that diamond in the rough: the schoolhouse became the home of Tidewater Winery. In addition to touring the historic facility, visitors can stop by to sip some of the winery's offerings. Read on to learn about a few:
Cimarron Red This medium-bodied red wine is made with corot noir grapes from the nearby vineyards. Its label displays a 2012 mural by Oklahoma artist Dr. Bob Palmer of a booming oilfield along the banks of the Cimarron River.
Pinot Grigio The winery's dry white wine offers a fruity aroma and crisp finish. Its label features the mural Indians and Wild Horses, which honors those who were in Drumright when the Wheeler No. 1 oil well launched the city's boom-town era.
Sweet Jimmie Jane A sweet blush wine whose label, another Dr. Bob Palmer mural, depicts a couple embracing with shotgun houses in the background. The woman on the label is rumored to be modeled after a local historian.
