Description

DEL RIO VINEYARDS is both a place deeply rooted in history and a winery reflecting the latest in viticulture and enology. The tasting room was built in 1864 and served for many years as the Rock Point Stage Hotel. The parcel of land that comprises one of the largest wine-growing operations in the Rogue Valley was a payment to the original owner for his service in the Rogue Indian Wars. The big red building displaying the Del Rio name, that today houses the winery, began as the fruit packinghouse of Del Rio Orchards.

Similarly, Del Rio’s estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Malbec, Merlot, Muscat, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Viognier reflect the time-honored traditions of Old World winemaking blended with New World innovation by winemaker Jean-Michel Jussiaume.

April, May, and June are prime months to visit the tasting room! Between the sunshine and the beautiful view, visitors love bringing a picnic to relax and enjoy a bottle of wine outside. To kick-off Oregon Wine Month (May), Del Rio will be participating in Roam the Rogue on May 7th. It’s a perfect way to explore the Upper Rogue Wine Trail, and see what the area has to offer. They will also host a uniquely-Oregon themed dinner, complete with local foods and inspiration on May 14th. In June, the Summer Concert Series kicks-off! Come ready to drink and dance in the backyard every other Friday evening to start the summer off right.
