This property measures 52 acres. There are 5 cultivated acres on this site and 3 acres offsite. Gene, Lost Oak’s President, has been growing grapes since 1989. He studied viticulture at Grayson County College in Dennison and by correspondence courses but learned much through experience the Texas soil and climate. During his career in the pharmaceutical industry, he had the opportunity to live in France for two years and spent much of his free time in vineyards and wineries. His passion to become a grower and make wine in Texas was born. After retirement, he opened the winery on this property in Burleson in 2006. The entire operation was located in the building which now serves as the tasting room.
The name was changed from Lone Oak to Lost Oak in 2012 - ironically, after the winery won a double gold medal in the San Francisco Chronicle competition and it became known that a Sonoma vineyard had trademarked the name Lone Oak.
Gene joined Texas Wine and Grape Growers Association (TWGGA) in 1979 when there were only seven wineries. Susan Combs took the dry/wet issue to Congress. Fighting for Texas wineries, she presented to Congress that if wineries could sell their wine out of their tasting room, even in a dry precinct, it would draw more tourism and revenue which in turn would generate excise tax and more money for state. House Bill 892 was passed in 2003. This is how Lost Oak Winery exists today. As a result, Texas has grown from 70 wineries in 2003 to over 275 presently.
Texas is now the 5th largest wine producing state next to California, Oregon, Washington and New York. Texas wineries pumped $1.8 billion to the Texas economy in 2011.
