Oregon wine is hot! According to Nielsen scan data, sales of Oregon wine achieved 14 percent volume growth in 2016 compared to a 2.8 percent increase for all wine. Much of the growth is driven by Pinot Noir, Oregon’s signature grape, with more than 62 percent of that variety planted. With such positive reception, Oregon wineries are now focusing more on the distinct differences in taste and profile of their 18 AVAs.

The new 9-1-1 Fund is an act of generosity that will benefit the whole Jackson County community.

All it took was a thoughtful observation and candid comment from a guest in late 2015 to get Dan Marca to completely upend the DANCIN Vineyards label design he had used since his first vintage in 2010. And while the original design—based on a thoughtful and thorough branding process—had worked beautifully in the past, DANCIN’s wines had evolved and it was time for the labels to catch up.

As the Southern Oregon AVA steadily gains recognition for quality wines, the pace of development has been speeding up. A whopping 56 percent of all Southern Oregon tasting rooms have been open less than 5 years, with untold others currently under construction or in their conceptual phase.

It’s 8 pm and the late afternoon winds have died down. Ross and Jen Allen ride the perimeter of their east Medford vineyard on horseback. And while that sounds quite romantic—as does owning a vineyard—the Allens are all business. They are laser-focused on developing 2Hawk into a world-class winery.

In the midst of an early harvest, 2Hawk Vineyard & Winery is now crushing grapes in its new on-site production facility. The building’s groundbreaking was back in March. The production facility gives the owners and the winemaker more control of the entire process from before the grape is picked to when the wine is poured into a glass.
