Wine Tours & Wineries

Wine making in Oregon began more than 150 years ago when Peter Britt of Jacksonville brought grapevine cuttings from California to create his Valley View Vineyard.

With wineries opening up every year, Southern Oregon boasts Wine Tours from Ashland, Medford and Grants Pass to Rogue Valley and Applegate Valley.

Not until the 1970s however was wine growing in Southern Oregon’s Rogue Valley truly re-established. Pear orchards were converted to vineyards, and wine making, rather than on a California scale,  specialized in boutique wineries tucked away along scenic country roads.
