WOOLDRIDGE CREEK WINERY & CRUSHPAD CREAMERY
WOOLDRIDGE CREEK WINERY & CRUSHPAD CREAMERY is home to a winery, vineyard and a creamery. And, it’s a story about a place, a partnership and a plan. The place is a hillside vineyard deep in the Applegate Valley winegrowing region of Southern Oregon. The partnership arose between the couple who planted the vineyard back in 1977 and the couple who wanted to add a winery to that vineyard. The plan came together in 2005 when the winery was built and Wooldridge Creek vineyard became Wooldridge Creek Vineyard and Winery.
The great thing is this: the formation of the Wooldridge Creek team has stood the test of time. It continues to make sense and make exceptional vintages. The original 18-acre vineyard has expanded to 56, planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Viognier, Gewurztraminer, Zinfandel, Malbec, Riesling and Tempranillo. The two couples are still committed to the vision that brought them together. And the plan has succeeded beyond belief.
The sustainably-designed winery is situated in one of the Applegate Valley’s most pristine settings, offering unparalleled mountain and valley views—the perfect spot to gather with friends or to enjoy an intimate picnic on the expansive lawn. And today, along with its fine wines, visitors can now sample cheeses from Wooldridge Creek’s CrushPad Creamery…the first combined winery and creamery in Oregon!
