Oregon has an A List and three of Southern Oregon’s finest restaurants are on it.

The Oregon Wine Board, in cooperation with the monthly news magazine Oregon Wine Press, recently announced the Oregon Wine A-List Awards. These awards honor restaurants and sommeliers that “demonstrate outstanding commitment to advocating and celebrating the quality and diversity of Oregon wines,” according to the A-List website.

Larks, the Jacksonville Inn and The Twisted Cork were among the Southern Oregon restaurants recognized for their inclusion of Oregon wines in their menus and cuisine.

Larks is located in downtown Ashland next to Ashland Spring Hotel.

The Jacksonville Inn is the signature landmark in downtown Jacksonville. Read about the Jacksonville Inn in our Digital Magazine.

The Twisted Cork is in downtown Grants Pass.

Visit their individual websites for more information.
