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 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.

Dillon Mafit (Rick’s son) designed the monochromatic label printed on actual “cork” paper. The idea emulates Reserve bottlings of many small wineries in Portugal. Each label varies with the patterns created by the natural cork and the way it absorbs the sepia ink creating a uniquely attractive package. This label won an award for Best Use of Art in Label Design in the 2001 San Diego National Wine Competition and again in 2002.

Mystic Wines has been producing small quantities of Oregon Merlot since 1992. In 1997 we added Cabernet Sauvignon, in 1999 a Syrah, in 2001 Zinfandel, and in 2002 we offered our first Barbera and Pinot Noir. All our wine has been sold direct; mostly to high-end restaurants, select retailers and a growing (hopefully) number of Red Wine Fanatics. Our wines are available in limited amounts in five states: Oregon, Washington, California, Colorado, Maryland, and outside the U.S. in Vancouver, B.C. and Tokyo, Japan.

Our goal is to stay small, handle the wines and winery ourselves and produce outstanding hand-crafted wines in limited quantities. The wines are ready to drink upon release yet will also benefit from additional cellaring. SALUTÉ!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
