Mystic Wines was started in Oregon by Rick Mafit in 1992. Rick spent the 80’s making wine in California’s Sonoma and Mendocino counties and came north to Oregon eager to find sites where “Big Reds” – most notably Merlot, would thrive and make wines of distinction. After scouring the state he found The Dalles region (Columbia Valley) in the Columbia Gorge just this side of the Washington Border. This area has a longer growing season and the heat necessary to fully ripen Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Barbera, and Zinfandel varieties.
Today, all our wine has been sold direct, either through the tasting room in Amity Oregon or through a small number of Oregon shops and restaurants. Our goal is to stay small, handle the wines and winery ourselves and produce outstanding hand-crafted wines in limited quantities. The wines we make are ready to drink upon release, yet will also benefit from additional cellaring.
