Their wines include Viognier, Zinfandel, Sangiovese, Syrah and a selection of varietal Ports. Slug Gulch Red, a non-vintage, very affordable red table wine, has achieved cult status with customers who have consistently found it to be the best mediocre red wine in the area.
Oakstone Winery offers different types of wine such as El Dorado Apple Wine, Slug Gulch Red, Murrill Vineyard Sangiovese, Estate De Cascabel Merlot, Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, De Cascabel Vineyard, Syrah, Boa Vista Vineyard, Late Harvest Zinfandel and Murrill Vineyard. Small lots of specialty wines are made each year in response to the annual variations in weather and grape crop from the eighteen acres of estate grapes. The tasting room is surrounded by elegant, mature estate vines, and features a tasting bar. Vineyards include small plots of Charbono, Pinot Gris, Malbec, and Petit Verdot, with the last two being combined with the three Bordeaux varieties already in production to allow unique Meritage blends each year.
