Discover the treasures of Southern Oregon wineries
Wine writers agree. One of Southern Oregon wineries’ major strengths is diversity when it comes to wine choices. You can see it in our proprietary blends. They are a reflection of each vintner’s creativity in developing a signature voice – one that will speak volumes in terms of their winemaking abilities.
The diversity theme is also carried forward by the untold number of varietals that are grown in the Southern Oregon area. All five of the classic Bordeaux varietals are found in the region- they include: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot , Malbec and Merlot. Additionally you will find, Burgundy’s Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the Rhone’s Viognier and Grenache, Germany’s Riesling and Gewurztraminer, Spain’s Tempranillo and Graciano and of course Italy’s Pinot Gris – just to touch on a few. Several wineries also produce a Zinfandel – a varietal whose derivation is quite controversial.
