meet the lost oak family

Gene Estes

Gene Estes

Founder & Father
Anyone who meets Gene senses his passion, enthusiasm, and energy to grow wine grapes and produce excellent wines in Texas - perhaps the most hostile environment in the world to do so - but as Gene claims, it is a testament to the Texas mentality of doing the impossible.
President & Daughter
A mom, globetrotter, and member of the Lost Oak Winery family, Roxanne is known for wearing a lot of hats. From Tasting Room to President, she can be credited with growing Lost Oak Winery 600% in the last 13 years, developing a robust event business and helping Lost Oak to expand in to the Hill Country.
Jim Evans

Jim Evans

Executive Winemaker
Jim has had a lifetime of achievements in the Texas Wine industry. Jim has been involved in the Texas wine grape industry since 1981. He claims that wine is made in the vineyard. A winemaker should just guide the process and not interfere too much. Let the wine be an expression of the grape.
