Spotlight on Southern Oregon

July 2021

We are celebrating our first ever wine tour and the launch of our mobile tasting room in Southern Oregon this month with a focus on Southern Oregon wineries.

This fast-growing region has a wide diversity of varietals planted and a vastly different growing climate than the rest of Oregon resulting in unique and delicious wines! I particularly love how they are making a name for themselves with Spanish varietals that aren’t widely grown anywhere else in the United States.

Our first red is a traditional Tempranillo from historic RoxyAnn Winery. Our second red is a modern take on the traditional Spanish varietal, a blend of Tempranillo and Mourvèdre from StoneRiver Vineyard.

Our first white is an anything-but-boring Pinot Gris from Pebblestone Cellars. And our second white is Southern Oregon’s take on the cult favorite Chenin Blanc from Goldback Wines.
