Friday night brings a spectacular firework display on the river. Saturday morning features the exciting Boatnik parade that travels through downtown and ends at Riverside Park. The big event is on Monday—the World-Famous Tom Rice Memorial White Water Hydroplane Race, in which white-water adventurers compete for large prizes over a perilous 50-mile course on Southern Oregon’s Rogue River. See boatnik.com.

RICH CULTURE SURROUNDED BY INCREDIBLE SCENERY Southern Oregon is an adventureland full of contrasts and delights. Outdoor adventure, historical exploration, cultural thrills and dining delights are around every corner. Whether you’re looking for wideopen spaces or cities to savor, you’ll find it here.
Culinary Don’t worry about finding satisfying sustenance on your Southern Oregon adventures. Satisfy your hunger and thirst with bites and sips from local purveyors every step of the way. The wine and dining scenes are thriving here, and why wouldn’t they be? The land is rich and made for growing wine grapes and delicious foods, and the rivers and ocean run with fish and seafood.
Culture For hundreds of years, the people of Southern Oregon have accomplished amazing feats. From the earliest days of Native culture, to non-Native settlement, and up to the modern era, Southern Oregon has been home to visionaries. Visit historic gold rush towns captured in time, river valleys settled during the Oregon Trail era, forest hamlets built on timber and villages home to generations of fishermen. Within each, find a rich cultural undercurrent. Consider the Britt Festival, the first outdoor music festival in the Northwest, still going strong after nearly six decades. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival was founded in 1935 and has grown to become an internationally renowned repertory theater. Native American history and culture are alive at the Favell Museum in Klamath Falls, or visit the art deco Ross Ragland Theater downtown for performing arts.

From seashore to desert and river to mountain peak, natural beauty is at its best here. This region’s most famous wonder is Crater Lake, that sapphire jewel and geological marvel nestled high in the mountains. Southern Oregon is also home to wildlife refuges, sparkling rivers, publicly owned beaches and designated historical sites. Boat or hike the Rogue, Umpqua or Illinois, all designated Wild and Scenic Rivers. Salmon fish the Pacific Ocean. Watch the sky come alive with birds, catch a trophy redband trout, or paddle 15,000 acres of calm water in the Klamath Basin. Gaze upon geologic wonders or soak in a hot springs in the high desert of the Outback.
SCENIC BYWAYS Enjoy the journey as much as the destination on these lovely drives.
ROGUE-UMPQUA SCENIC BYWAY The Rogue and the Umpqua rivers are two of Oregon’s finest stretches of water, each renowned for fishing, rafting and scenery. The RogueUmpqua Scenic Byway first travels up the North Umpqua River from I-5 at Roseburg, then journeys down the Upper Rogue River to Gold Hill. The 172-mile tour delivers views of massive fir forests, whitewater rapids, waterfalls and gorges carved into mountains.
UMPQUA RIVER SCENIC BYWAY This sixty-six-mile journey takes in the lower Umpqua River on its path to the sea. Travel through historic towns known for rich natural resources that attracted fur traders, loggers, fishermen and farmers more than a century ago. Follow the highway along the river through the beautiful forests of the Coast Range, ending in Reedsport and the Pacific Ocean.
Oregon Outback Scenic Byway
OREGON OUTBACK SCENIC BYWAY The views in Oregon’s section of the Great Basin stretch across sagebrush as far as the eye can see.

CRATER LAKE Welcome to Oregon’s crown jewel. Almost 8,000 years ago, Mount Mazama erupted in a cataclysmic explosion. Rock and lava collapsed into the mountain’s center, creating a massive caldera in place of what had been a 12,000-foot peak. This caldera filled with rain and snow over centuries to become the scenic wonder Crater Lake, Oregon’s only national park.
Tour the thirty-three mile Rim Drive, stopping at viewpoints and interpretive signs along the way. Or forgo the driving and take the Crater Lake Trolley tour. Visit historic Crater Lake Lodge, built in 1915 and perched 1,000 feet above the lake surface. Explore Steel Visitor Center or Rim Village Visitor Center to learn more about the park and its natural wonders. Take a boat tour to Wizard Island, a cinder cone within the caldera that rises from the lake. Hike along trails that lead to stunning views of the lake and its surrounding region.

Thousands of visitors each year peer into the impossibly blue, pristine waters that fill Crater Lake. At nearly 2,000 feet deep, it’s the deepest lake in the United States and the second deepest in all of North America. The park is open year-round, but receives a remarkable fortyfour feet of snow annually. Only the south entrance is plowed to the rim in the winter.
THE CIRCLE OF DISCOVERY A driving tour of natural wonders Southern Oregon and Northern California are home to seven national park sites, which protect not only North America’s deepest lake, but also its tallest trees, steamiest hydrothermal areas, finest marble caves and most dramatic waterfalls. This is the Circle of Discovery, a multiday family road trip full of adventure and fun. Begin your journey in Redwood National Park on the Northern California coast. The coast redwood has existed in this region for 20 million years, can live 2,000 years, grows from a seed the same size as a tomato’s to reach heights of up to 367 feet and can have a width of twenty-two feet at its base. Walk among the impressive trees in misty coastal air. Redwood National Park
From the Redwoods, go north sixty miles into Oregon’s Siskiyou Mountains to the Oregon Caves National Monument. Eons of acidic rain seeped through the soil in this ancient forest to erode the rock underneath, resulting in some of the few marble caves in the world. Ranger guides take you underground. From Oregon Caves, travel 150 miles through the rich Rogue Valley to Crater Lake National Park. The south entrance is open year-round. In winter, call on the visitor’s center and peer into the snow-surrounded waters of the lake. In summer, drive the rim and have lunch at the historic Crater Lake Lodge.

OREGON OUTBACK The sky dominates in the Oregon Outback. The wide-open blue hovers over a rimrock and sage landscape, a breathtaking expanse as far as the eye can see. Some people might think there isn’t much out here, but others would say that’s the point. It’s peaceful and beautiful, with plenty to explore in culture, history and geology. Lakeview is the region’s anchor, located at Oregon’s southernmost end of Highway 395. Boasting the title of the tallest town in Oregon, Lakeview sits at 4,800 feet on the flanks of the Warner Mountains, with a view of the valley. Lakeview is known for its summer rodeo and round-up, with barrel races, country music and rodeo queens. 2019 marked the 100th anniversary of the Lake County Round-Up.
Summer Lake Hot Springs
Just north of Lakeview is Warner Canyon Ski Area, one of Oregon’s best-kept secrets for lovers of snow and slopes. Since 1938, this little hill has been a local labor of love, with one lift and twenty-one runs. From the 6,400-foot summit, view the grassland valley below. East of Warner Canyon, wind through the mountains to Plush, the home of Oregon’s state gemstone. The sunstone is born under the desert floor here, in the shadow of the steep flanks of Hart Mountain. Dig for your own sunstones in a public mining area or purchase some from a miner or store. Hart Mountain is largely designated as a wildlife refuge that shelters antelope and sage grouse. A hot springs is perched on top of the mountain, too. The town of Paisley hosts an annual mosquito festival, in a friendly nod to one of the town’s “residents.” Just north is Summer Lake Hot Springs, a developed retreat offering several soaking pools, camping and lodging options. Summer Lake is an alkaline lake that glimmers under the shadow of Winter Rim, both named by John Fremont during his mapmaking exploration of Oregon. Christmas Valley is a small town known for its sand dunes, attracting ATV enthusiasts year-round. Oregon Outback country’s northern boundary is marked by Fort Rock, an immense volcanic tuff ring visible from miles away. Stroll around and take in the scenery and that wide-open sky.

Owner, Summer Lake Hot Springs Duane Graham happened upon Summer Lake Hot Springs in 1988 while taking a road trip through Eastern Oregon on spring break from college. The natural hot springs, vast landscape and eternal starry nights called him back for peace and healing year after year. In 1996, he purchased the 145 acres of paradise. Today, the destination is a healing retreat with cabins and camping, centered around the hot springs.
Favorite day trip Outside of Plush are the Oregon Sunstone Mines, where the state gemstone is harvested. Nearby, take a trip up to Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge, to visit more hot springs and a campground.
Hidden gem The Gearhart Wilderness southwest from Paisley offers lots of nice hiking, swimming and good views. The upper Chewaucan River basin, nearby, also has great fishing, hiking and more camping.
Don’t miss North Lake County is full of amazing geological and volcanic features, like Fort Rock and Crack in the Ground. Cap the day off with a trip to the Cowboy Dinner Tree restaurant in Silver Lake.

Ou t d o o r s RAFTING AND FISHING
FLOATING THE DAY AWAY The majestic Pacific Ocean and awe-inspiring Crater Lake may be the most well-known bodies of water in the region, but Southern Oregon is famous for many world-class waters. Dozens of lakes and rivers have long inspired aficionados of the wild outdoors. Begin your exploration of Southern Oregon’s waters with the Rogue River, which springs from the flanks of Crater Lake’s caldera. From the early days of the gold rush through the modern era of the Wild West, this river has been renowned and adored as a wild, gorgeous frontier. The Upper Rogue is rugged and wild, inspiring sightseeing as well as kayaking and steelhead fishing. The Lower Rogue is sought-after for whitewater rafting, with would-be permit holders lining up months in advance. Salmon and steelhead fishing are excellent here. The North Umpqua makes its way from the Cascade Range to the sea, inspiring legions of adoring fans. The Umpqua is legendary for steelhead, and great for boating, from kayak to raft to drift boat. On the Illinois River, a wild and scenic beauty, fly-fishing for steelhead, chinook salmon and coho salmon rules. While remote, this tributary to the Rogue offers fishing in serene solitude. The Williamson River offers amazing trout fishing on its 100-mile journey into Upper Klamath Lake. Klamath River begins in the desert and flows toward the mountains before reaching the sea. Known for large trout and whitewater, the Klamath is a gem. Lakes aplenty can be found for anglers of all levels of experience, including Lake of the Woods, Upper Klamath Lake, Diamond Lake, Odell Lake and Crescent Lake. Cast a line from the shore or a boat and kick back until the fish bite. Rafting the Rogue River
STEVE & DEBBIE HILBERT
Owners, Lonesome Duck Ranch Twenty-five years ago, Steve and Debbie Hilbert purchased a dilapidated 100acre property on the Williamson River.

Eagles, otters, wood ducks, and woodpeckers share the ranch with guests.
Favorite day trip Driving Highway 62 through the Wood River Valley in any season is uniquely beautiful. Travel through the forests of Crater Lake National Park with views of the canyon and waters of Annie Creek. Cross the crest of the Cascades and head to Union Creek, and visit the headwaters of the Rogue River, the Rogue River Gorge and Becky’s Cafe (best homemade pie-ever!).
Hidden gem Perrin’s Past & Present—on Highway 97, 6 miles south of Chiloquin—features antiques, collectables and curiosities galore. Find enough “stuff” to keep any collector busy for hours.
In Downtown Chiloquin, visit the Two Rivers Art Gallery, which carries all forms of fine art and artisan products, including wood, pottery, beading, paint, photography, and more, all handcrafted by local artists.

lture u C & Arts A CALL TO CREATE AND A PASSION FOR THE ARTS When it comes to enhancing our lives with the arts, the people of Southern Oregon have always dreamt big. The first Chautauqua lectures began in the 1890s, and things only grew from there. Today, Southern Oregon is home to the longest-running outdoor music festival in the Northwest, an internationally famous theater festival, innovative visual artists, marvelous makers of anything you can imagine, and so much more. Come and celebrate the joy and inspiration of creativity with us.

IF YOU CREATE, THEY WILL COME From the moment people first roamed this inspiring landscape, arts and culture was at the heart of human experience. Many thousands of years ago, Native Americans wove baskets, sewed beadwork and made feather adornments from the natural materials they found around them in the natural world. Later, non-native settlers made their mark, like Peter Britt, who arrived in Jacksonville in 1852 with $5 in his pocket and a wagonful of photography equipment. He chronicled fifty years of life in the fledgling pioneer community. Britt is the namesake of Southern Oregon’s premier outdoor concert series, the Britt Festival, which sits on the grounds of his former home. Or think of Angus Bowmer, who came to Ashland in 1931 to teach English at Southern Oregon Normal School. A few years later, he persuaded the city to support an outdoor production of the works of Shakespeare. His legacy is the world-famous Oregon Shakespeare Festival, with three theaters, a company of hundreds and thousands of plays presented over the past eighty-seven years. Today, the dreamers endure. Around here, people defend and value the arts. Communities step up and rally around theaters to save them from neglect and destruction. Volunteers staff regional history museums and community art galleries when funds are tight. Look around, and you’ll be inspired too. Oregon Cabaret Theatre
Artistic Director, Oregon Shakespeare Festival Nataki Garrett joined OSF in 2019 as the theatre company’s sixth artistic director. A graduate of CalArts with an MFA in Directing, Garrett is known as a champion of new works for the stage as well as a savvy arts administrator.
Favorite day trip I’ve been too busy to venture too far away from OSF’s campus and Ashland, but a trip to Irvine & Roberts Winery made me feel like I was far away from it all.
Hidden gem Most residents are familiar with the OSF campus—our theatres and the central courtyard known as “the Bricks,” which has been a gathering space for the community for decades. Another quiet getaway is just on the other side of the Allen Elizabethan Theatre: the Bill Patton Garden. This peaceful, shady space hosts Park Talks by OSF company members and the Tudor Guild brass rubbing activities during the summer, but on most days you can have the place all to yourself for a picnic or just a nice spot to sit and read or watch the birds, squirrels, deer, and occasional flock of turkeys!
I hope you won’t pass up an opportunity to see a play (or two, or ten!) at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (one of America’s oldest and largest regional theatres), but you can also see shows at the nearby Oregon Cabaret Theatre, Southern Oregon University, and Camelot Theatre in Talent.

Oregon Shakespeare Festival
TAKE TO THE STAGE From the number of theaters in Southern Oregon, you might think everyone who lives here has the gift to entertain, or at least that they’ve caught the theater bug. Ashland’s Oregon Shakespeare Festival is the granddaddy, but the greater region abounds with theater productions and the performing arts. Behind every regional theater is a passionate, talented and dedicated community, determined to provide a stage for talent. And talent you will find, from local and national, musical to dramatic, to entertain, educate and inspire. In Ashland, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival runs March through October on three stages. This rotating repertory company showcases plays written by William Shakespeare, as well as other playwrights who’ve penned plays from classics to contemporaries. The festival’s reach is international and brings the town of Ashland to vibrant life each season with thousands of visitors. Also in Ashland is the Oregon Cabaret Theatre, where dinner
comes with the show. Musicals and music acts are served along with delicious meals at this entertainment hub in the heart of town just steps from the Shakespeare festival campus. Twenty years ago, the community of Medford rallied around a historic community theater. Today, the Craterian Theater presents dozens of plays, musicals and performances each year. Also in Medford is the Holly Theatre, a historic Spanish Colonial Revival theater built in 1930. Currently undergoing a renovation, the Holly will host national music acts, classic films and more for years to come. Camelot Theater took up residence in an old feed store in Talent in 1990, and the rest is history. This 104-seat theater hosts musicals and plays year-round, now in the new state-of-the-art, Art Decostyle James Morrison Collier Theatre building. Rogue Theatre in downtown Grants Pass is another historic art deco gem, built in 1938. Today, the venue is host to local and national music, dance, film and plays. Downtown Klamath Falls has the Art Deco beauty and community hub the Ross Ragland Theater. In Gold Beach, it’s the Ellensburg Theatre in the historic Rogue Playhouse that entertains guests.

STORIES FROM THE PAST In the beginning, there was the land. Rich natural resources and a call to settle this beautiful country defined the early days of Southern Oregon’s growth and prosperity. Then came the people, full of a strength of character, independence and passion that still permeates the region today. Many institutions around the region bring these twin histories and cultures to life. In the late 1880s, the Applegate Trail became an important alternative to the main Oregon Trail route to the Willamette Valley. Many settlers chose sunny Southern Oregon as their new home. The Applegate Trail Interpretive Center in Sunny Valley depicts the stories of the covered wagons, gold, and rail and stage lines that defined the settlers’ experiences. Just up the road in Wolf Creek is the Wolf Creek Inn, built in the 1880s as an oasis for weary travelers. Today, the inn still serves meals and provides beds to sojourners.
Roseburg’s own little historic time capsule is the Douglas County Museum. In addition to artifacts showcasing the history of mining, fishing, farming and timber, the museum has one of the largest plant collections on display in the Northwest, providing a glimpse of the diversity of the forests that surround this special region. In the Outback, don’t miss a stop at the Fort Rock Homestead Museum, with a collection of homestead-era buildings including a church, school and cabins filled with historic items. On the coast, Coos History Museum brings to life maritime history, the history of fire on the Oregon Coast and more than 250,000 images of the widely captured Southern Oregon coastline. The Favell Museum in Klamath Falls is dedicated to regional Native American culture. Native American artifacts and contemporary Western art found here include arrowheads, cradleboards, miniature guns and more. Collier Memorial Logging Museum is home to the largest collection of logging equipment in Oregon. Klamath County Museum is the region’s main history hub. The Fort Klamath Museum, north of Klamath Falls, is a small gem with interesting artifacts from the era when hundreds of soldiers were stationed there.

On the campus of Southern Oregon University in Ashland is the Schneider Museum of Art, showcasing fine visual arts in a changing exhibit format. Past exhibits have included fine and contemporary art and serve as a vital force in the intellectual life of the college and the city.
Each fall, the Klamath Independent Film Festival in Klamath Falls brings shorts and features to town. On the other side of the Siskiyou range in spring, the Ashland Independent Film Festival brings independent film to Ashland. Immerse yourself in this five-day event that has been described as “magical” and a “dream you’ll never want to leave.” Artistic films and their makers descend on this small town for a community-driven, cultural experience. In Roseburg, the Umpqua Valley Arts Association presents the Arts Center. By working with student, regional and resident artists, along with six galleries, the Arts Center supports the local community. The Guild Gallery & Art Center in Kerby, north of Cave Junction, diplays art in many mediums from regional artists, including glass, ceramics, jewelry and more. Several decades ago, Portland conductor John Trudeau and his friend Sam McKinney visited Southern Oregon with the dream of starting a music festival. They found the hillside estate of Jacksonville photographer Peter Britt, and a match was made. The slope of the Britt hill not only creates perfect acoustics, it also offers stunning views of the Rogue Valley in the distance. With performances from orchestra to mainstream headlining acts, the Britt Festival is the heart of Jacksonville and an aesthetic treasure in the state.

As the farm-to-table movement spread across the nation, Southern Oregon was already at the head of the trend. Established farms and creative chefs have long been making magic with what the land produced in this rich ecosystem.
A Tasty Sip There are dozens of breweries to explore around these parts, from Winston’s modest tasting room Lookingglass Brewery to Wild River Brewing with three locations in the Rogue Valley to Ashland’s Caldera Brewing Company to Klamath Basin Brewing Co in Klamath Falls. Walkabout Brewing and Common Block Brewing are both in Medford, as is BricktownE Brewing Company, with beers from IPA to stout. In Gold Beach, don’t miss a stop at Arch Rock Brewing Company. In Roseburg, visit Backside Brewing Co. Craft cider has popped up, including Bandon Rain at the seashore and Apple Outlaw Cider south of Applegate in the rugged valley. Gold Rush Cider makes excellent fresh beverages in Medford. And don’t forget the spirits. Immortal Spirit, also in Medford, was the region’s first single malt whiskey distillery, with Pioneer Whisky Distillery following suit in Talent.

DO SOMETHING GREAT ď‚&#x; 63
e n i W IN WINE THEREâ€™S TRUTH Southern Oregon has five wine regions: Rogue Valley, Applegate Valley, Umpqua Valley, Illinois River and Elkton. The climate and the terrain make Southern Oregon ideal for growing wine grapes. Our vineyards produce some of the most diverse wine varietals of anywhere else in the Pacific Northwest. This latitude and prevailing oceanic winds create a seven-month growing season. Wide diurnal temperature swings and mountainous topography produce dozens of microclimates. The result is award-winning wines that delight aficionados.
64 ď‚&#x; Travel Southern Oregon
VARIETALS TO SPARE Southern Oregon cultivates more than seventy different grape varieties. This makes this region more like Europe than other locations on the West Coast. Wine Enthusiast named Southern Oregon one of the Top 10 Global Destinations in 2016. At the same time, this region is still relatively undiscovered when it comes to viticulture. You can make a leisurely wine tasting trip, complete with gourmet meals and tempranillo and cabernet, without worrying about fighting the crowds.
WINE WITH A BITE Locally sourced meals taste even better while drinking wine from the earth beneath your feet and gazing at the vineyards that produced what’s in your glass. Some of the region’s wineries don’t stop their quest for excellency with the grape. Delicious bites are to be found at many wineries, too. Try the woodfired pizza at DANCIN Vineyards near Jacksonville, an indulgent burger at Schmidt Family Vineyards, or the ever-delicious seasonal sample menu at Belle Fiore in Medford.
TIME FOR A PARTY Regional wineries are prime destination event locations. Book a wedding or reunion on one of these gorgeous private grounds and it’s memorable. Many wineries offer regular music and entertainment. Catch live music by the Applegate River at Red Lily Vineyards, wine and music series at RoxyAnn Winery in Medford and the summerfest concert series at Delfino Vineyards in Roseburg.

The Umpqua Valley AVA is bordered by the Oregon Coast Range to the west, the Cascades to the east, the Willamette Valley’s winegrowing region to the north and the Rogue Valley to the south. Two sub-appellation, Red Hill Douglas County and Elkton Oregon, are within the Umpqua Valley AVA. Scenic and rural, friendly and welcoming, most Umpqua Valley wineries are family owned and operated, offering visitors a personal experience at their tasting rooms and vineyards.
HISTORY Umpqua Valley wine dates back to the 1880s, when German immigrants planted the first vineyard in the valley. In 1961, Richard Sommer established Oregon’s oldest estate winery still in operation today, HillCrest Vineyards, located in the hills west of Roseburg. The Umpqua Valley AVA is Oregon’s oldest viticulture region, established in 1984.
LANDSCAPE Melrose Vineyards
Roseburg is the heart of the Land of Umpqua, and the largest city within the Umpqua Valley AVA. The Umpqua River flows through town, from mountains and waterfalls to covered bridges towards the Pacific Ocean. Umpqua territory is drier and warmer than the Oregon wine regions to the north, and cooler than the Rogue and Applegate wine regions to the south. With temperatures varying as much as 60 degrees in the summer, the Umpqua Valley wine region is comprised of three distinct climatic sub-zones. The northern area around the town of Elkton enjoys a cool, marine-influenced climate. The central area to the northwest of the city of Roseburg has a transitional, or intermediate, climate where both cool and warm varieties do quite well. The area south of Roseburg is warmer and more arid, similar to the Rogue and Applegate valleys to the south. A series of valleys and hills on the same latitude as those running directly through some of Europe’s greatest grape-growing districts define this AVA.
More than 40 different wine varieties are planted in the Umpqua Valley AVA. The cooler valleys allow grapes such as Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling to flourish while the warmer valleys produce outstanding Syrah, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon. This climate lends itself well to the Rhone varietals such as Viognier and Grenache and the Spanish Albariño and Graciano. Other popular varietals include Merlot, Zinfandel, Baco Noir, Cabernet Franc and Gewurztraminer.

and explore the many wineries found along the Umpqua Wine Trail.
E lkton The Elkton AVA sub-appellation of the Umpqua AVA is one of the newest wine regions in Oregon. The misty hills and cool valleys of the coastal mountain range are perfect for cool weather grapes. Under the boughs of the Douglas fir, the Elkton area produces great wines only forty miles from the ocean.
Winegrowing in Elkton dates back to the early 1970s with the planting of cool climate whites and Pinot Noir. Thirty years later, in 2002, Brandborg Vineyard and Winery opened as the area’s first winery. In 2013, the Elkton Oregon AVA was established to recognize the area’s distinct climate and geography within the larger Umpqua Valley AVA.
Ocean breezes frequently blanket the coastline west of Elkton in the thickest marine layer in Southern Oregon, keeping Elkton’s vineyards cooler, moister and foggier than those in Oregon’s other southern appellations. With an average rainfall of 50 inches a year, it’s also the coolest and wettest region within the Umpqua Valley.
The conditions are ideal for the planting of cool weather grapes, including Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Baco Noir, and Riesling.

The cultural and economic heart of Southern Oregon beats in the Rogue Valley, which includes the communities of Medford, Ashland and Grants Pass. The Rogue Valley is also the location of the greatest concentration of wineries in Southern Oregon. The Rogue Valley AVA offers a rich diversity of climate and a wide variety of grapes, making it an incredible destination for a full-spectrum winetouring experience.
HISTORY Rogue Valley’s wine history dates back to the 1840s when European immigrants began planting grapes and eventually bottling wines. In 1852, an early settler named Peter Britt joined in on the grape growing adventure. He later opened Oregon’s first official winery, Valley View, but that venture closed in 1907. It wasn’t until after an Oregon State University professor planted an experimental vineyard here in 1968 that winemakers rediscovered Rogue Valley as a superb winegrowing region. Rogue Valley AVA became an official appellation in 1991.

The convergence of three mountain ranges of varying ages and structure define the Rogue Valley. The Klamath Mountains, the Coastal Range and the Cascades surround the valley. Vineyards have been planted at elevations of 1,200 to 2,000 feet, usually on the region’s rugged hillsides rather than on the valley floor. The Rogue Valley AVA is home to a couple of dozen wineries. Green valleys and rolling hills full of merlot to malbec are here for the sampling.
VARIETALS Similar to France’s Bordeaux region, the Rogue Valley’s warm dry climate benefits Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Tempranillo and Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc. To the west end of the Rogue Valley, you’ll find cool-weather varietals such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Muscat and Gewürztraminer. Dolcetto, Grenache and Zinfandel are among other varietals found here.

Peter Britt, the namesake of the famous Britt Festival and an early settler to the region, was the first to plant wine grapes in the Applegate Valley, in 1852 on his property in Jacksonville. A few years later, the celebrated photographer and horticulturalist opened Valley View Winery, Oregonâ€™s first official winery. While the original winery closed in 1907, the Wisnovsky family took on the Valley View Winery name in 1978, opening as the first winery of the new era in the Applegate Valley AVA. The appellation, also part of the Rogue Valley AVA, became official in 2001.
LANDSCAPE The Applegate Valley has a moderate climate that generally enjoys a warm, dry growing season with hot days and cool nights perfect for warm-climate varieties. The steep terrain of the protects the terroir from coastal breezes, resulting in the pleasant temperatures and moderate climate that drew early pioneers. This rugged, beautiful valley is full of rural scenery, friendly people and winemaking talent.
The Applegate Valley produces a rich variety of wines, from Chardonnay, Tempranillo, Syrah, Sangiovese, Viognier, Petite Sirah, Primitivo, Reisling, Roussanne and Zinfandel.

The Illinois Valley AVA is a sub region of the Rogue Valley AVA. The river it’s named for carves a path through the forested mountains of the Siskiyou Mountains to the south and the Oregon Coast Range to the west, via Highway 199 from I-5 to Highway 101 on the Pacific Ocean. This tranquil, rural setting is a great place to enjoy the outdoors and simply relax.
HISTORY The Illinois Valley is home to one of the oldest existing vineyards in Oregon, planted in 1969. Winemaking took off in the 1980s with the arrival of family growers including Bridgeview Vineyards and Winery owners Lelo and Bob Kerivan, with their well-researched European grape-growing practices.
LANDSCAPE The valley is bordered by the Siskiyou Mountains to the south and the Oregon Coast Range to the west. The town of Cave Junction, at the heart of the valley, is the gateway to one of our state’s greatest treasures, the Oregon Caves National Monument, one of the world’s few marble cave formations. With a high elevation and ocean breezes that spill over the coastal mountains to the west, the valley is perfect for cool-weather varietals.
VARIETALS Burgundian varietals such as pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot blanc thrive in the Illinois Valley.

A PLACE TO CALL HOME, IF ONLY FOR A NIGHT Historic If history calls to you, you’ll find one of Oregon’s oldest lodgings in Jacksonville. Built in 1861, the Jacksonville Inn is rumored to be haunted, but that doesn’t stop guests from booking its rooms solid through the season. Second-oldest to the Jacksonville Inn is Wolf Creek Inn and Tavern, built in 1883 as respite on the Applegate Trail, and a hotel and restaurant to this day. Another oldie but goodie is Prospect Historic Hotel Dinner House. The lodging on the Upper Rogue River was built in 1889 to accommodate travelers to Crater Lake, and still serves guests meals and comfortable lodging in the woods by the river.

Re lo cat io n MOVE YOUR BUSINESS TO SOUTHERN OREGON Southern Oregon has been your favorite place to visit for a while now. You’ve strapped your bike on top of your car dozens of times and driven hours just to break out that ridiculously light fly rod that you paid way too much for. Now it’s time to stare down the elephant in the room: If you love it here that much, why haven’t you moved your business here?
of your favorite show (that’s 4 viewings of Star Wars I-IV or 11 runs of the Tiger King series) or disconnect and explore the wilderness in your very own backyard.
Here are our top reasons to stop procrastinating and [finally] move your business to Southern Oregon:
Over half of Oregon is publicly owned, including thick national forests and clear mountain lakes and streams. If you hike, bike, ski, climb, kayak, hang-glide, hunt, fish or boat, you will love Southern Oregon. You can raft the Rogue River, cut your own Christmas tree, or work on your green thumb in gardening nirvana (we’re growing Zone 8).
#3. No sales tax.
#1. We’re One—One Rogue Valley.
Oregon has no sales tax. This means the price you see is the price you pay…no more attempts at mental math calculating weird odd or half percentages. There’s also no inventory tax in Oregon. Just sayin’.
#2. Hiking and rafting and skiing, oh my!
Southern Oregonians are friendly, helpful, and creative. We are home base for many artisans and have a burgeoning ecosystem of entrepreneurs and innovators. Our region proudly hosts the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the Britt Fest, tons of wineries, cideries, and even the world’s best bleu cheese!
Our average commute time is 17 minutes. That’s 43% shorter than the California average of 30 minutes and adds up to 56 hours total hours saved each year. Use your extra time to binge every episode
But more importantly, we work together. Our area businesses and agencies meet regularly in a “One Rogue Valley Coalition” to align goals and share activities.
