Named the “next Napa” by Vogue.com, the Rogue Valley AVA is the southernmost winegrowing region in Oregon. It’s made up of three distinct river valleys (Bear Creek, Applegate and Illinois), that extend from the foothills of the Siskiyou Mountains along the California border north to the Rogue River. It is 70 miles wide by 60 miles long. Region’s progressively warmer microclimates enable it to successfully grow both cool- and warm-climate grape varieties. To the west, the region is affected by mountain and ocean influences, making it suitable for some cool-weather varieties, including Pinot Noir. Farther east, Rogue Valley has the highest elevations (nearly 2,000 feet) of Oregon’s winegrowing regions, but it is also the warmest and the driest, making it well-suited for warm-weather varieties including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc. To find out more visit Rogue Valley Wine Country.

Inspired by the Rogue Valley’s natural beauty and bounty, Roxy Ann Winery was founded in 2002 at the historic Hillcrest Orchard in east Medford. One of Southern Oregon’s oldest orchards. Jack Day, grandson of Hillcrest founder Reginald Parsons, saw the potential of grape growing on the historic Hillcrest Orchard, and in 1997 he planted 20 acres of grapes on the property’s shallow, limestone-clay soils. In 2001, the first harvest of grapes at Roxy Ann produced only 150 cases of a proprietary red “Claret” that was a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the entire production sold out in two weeks. Today, Roxy Ann Winery produces nearly 15,000 cases of award-winning Claret, Pinot Gris, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Syrah, and Viognier that reflect balance, complexity and profound depth of flavor. Their tasting room is in a historic barn. A true Southern Oregon experience.
