Backroad Vineyard

Backroad Vineyard is a unique family-owned and operated small farm winery and vineyard located near Fort Gibson Lake, north of Okay, Ok. In 2007, owner Rick Merrill began making wine as a hobby, and with Connie’s Northern California roots they decided to plant 250 vines on their property to bring a bit of wine country to Oklahoma. With the encouragement of family and close friends, Backroad Vineyard and Rustic Weddings opened as a small rustic wedding venue. Eventually, they converted the building used for receptions to what is now the winery, tasting room and gift shop, and produce quality small batch wines. All of their wines are hand crafted at the winery from the start of fermentation to bottling and labeling. From sweet fruity to semi-sweet and dry, they have a great selection to satisfy anyone’s palate. Backroad offers free wine tastings, and you will get to personally visit with Rick and Connie. Sit out on the front porch and relax with a glass of your favorite wine and enjoy the view of the vines, pond and the old rustic barn.
