SCHULTZ WINES is the label associated with Glory Oaks Vineyard and Farm, a new venue in the Applegate Valley. Glory Oaks is a long way from Baton Rouge, Louisiana where owners Greg and Debbie Schultz took their first steps toward becoming viticulturists. Their journey began with a few classes on wine at Louisiana State University that sparked a tasting trip to Southern Oregon. It was love at first sight. Greg and Debbie stayed in Ashland for five months in 2010, volunteering as cellar hands at Weisinger Family Winery. Once they met Linda Donovan of Pallet Wine Company and discovered the custom crush option for launching a label, Schultz Wines was born.
The first bottling of Schultz Wine was a 2010 Chardonnay that won a gold medal at the 2011 World of Wine competition. 2011 was also the year Greg and Debbie moved to Oregon. Not long after, hiking the Enchanted Forest Trail, they found a “for sale” sign on the property that would become Glory Oaks. Tempranillo and Malbec are now planted and the existing ranch house has recently been converted to a tasting room offering stunning views of the vineyard and valley. The tasting room offers Pinot Noir, with fruit sourced from the Willamette Valley, and Merlot, Chardonnay, Viognier, Syrah, Pinot Gris and red dessert wine with fruit sourced from the Applegate Valley. It’s the perfect pairing—a great story and fine wines!
