Our Roots Go Deep

The story of Ox & Oak Vineyards

As above, so below. The branches of the namesake great white oak tree at Ox & Oak Vineyards may no longer stretch across the stone wall-lined road to join the two properties, but its roots still span deep and far into the field where grapes are planted.  It was a sad time when the oak tree didn’t sprout leaves that spring.

The actual age of this solid white oak has not yet been determined, however, the tree is estimated to have been an acorn growing around the time of the American Revolution.  This is one big old tree.  It is our promise to history, heritage, and the once beautiful iconic tree to live on through Ox & Oak Vineyards.

Grape vines tended with love, care and precision.

– Owners & Wine Vintners


What started as a hobby years ago grew into a passion and now a budding business.  Over 15 years ago, planted along our driveway are the original 9 plants that started our journey.  With farming in our family history, we were naturals at maintaining a growing vineyard.  Our quest was to ensure we were growing grape varietals that worked best with our terroir to produce fruity and earthy wines.

As Vintners, we love what we do and are always perfecting our winemaking skills.  We attend conferences, trade shows, webex training sessions to stay on top of the latest techniques and tools available.

Our wines have been entered in amateur competitions and have won many double-gold, gold, and silver metals.  We look forward to entering our wines in national competitions as professionals.

Enjoy our wines with good food, good friends, and make good memories.
