- Part of the Eufaula the Leader Trail
Jim Lamb "Pa", was the original owner of Briarpatch Winery in Briartown which he sold in 2013. In August of 2020 we received a phone call that the new owner was closing and selling all the wine making equipment. Pa’s son and daughter-in-law Kelly and Janette Lamb seized the opportunity to bring back the original recipes and quality of wine that Pa has perfected over the past 20 years. He agreed to train and mentor Janette and grandson Zach Lamb in his wine making secrets. With his blessing, help, and training we opened ON THE LAMb WINERY. We “allegedly” have a long family history of outlaws on both sides. Nestled between Belle Star Landing and Robbers Cave, “being on the LAM from the law” was a common thread in the region as outlaws attempted to escape Hanging Judge Parker’s far reach out of Ft. Smith. With THREE generations of winemakers, we hope our wine will bring back some good memories of Briarpatch Winery while making many more along the way. We always enjoy seeing old friends and making new ones. Pa has been known to make an appearance at the Winery from time to time and loves to reconnect with old customers.
