The red wines here are a great choice for wine lovers who don’t want too much weighing down their palate.
I highly recommend this winery as a jumping off point if you are in the Roseburg area and want to get your feet wet sampling Oregon wines in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.
The historic winery (the oldest estate winery in Oregon) is beautiful for photo ops, they have an adorable winery dog, and the dry farming techniques are to be applauded.
Melrose offers a real Oregon experience. From the extensive porfolio of myriad varietals to the renovated old barn, it doesn’t get much better.
It’s my third time attending the annual Wine Media Conference, but my first time participating in a pre-Conference excursion.
