VALLEY VIEW WINERY

Description

VALLEY VIEW is an iconic name in the Rogue Valley. Not only is it the name of Peter Britt’s original Jacksonville winery, circa 1858, but it also came to be the name of the first modern winery in the Rogue Valley. Founded by Frank and Ann Wisnovsky, Valley View was bonded in 1978. Using fruit from his Applegate Valley estate, planted in 1972, Wisnovsky made Bordeaux varietals up until his death in 1980 when Valley View operations were passed on to Ann and sons.

The thirty-seven-year-old winery is now operated by Mark and Michael Wisnovsky. The vineyard has more than doubled in size since the original planting and now includes Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Rousanne, Chardonnay and Syrah. Wines have been made by UC Davis-trained enologist John F. Guerrero since 1985. Wines offered at the Applegate Valley Wine Pavilion in Ruch include Rogue Valley red and white blends, as well as Chardonnay, Viognier, Syrah, Tempranillo, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and a Port-style dessert wine bottled under the premium Anna Maria label.
