Umpqua Wine Trail
The complex topography of the Umpqua Valley, formed by the convergence of three mountain ranges of varying ages and structure, contributes to the occurrence of varied soil types and the many sub-valleys known as the Hundred Valleys of the Umpqua. The rich diversity of landscapes and climates provide a wide range of conditions needed to produce an exciting array of grape varieties. The cooler valleys allow varietals such as Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Riesling to flourish while the warmer valleys include Merlot, Cabernet, Syrah, Tempranillo, and Grenache. Overall, the Umpqua Valley is Oregon’s most complex wine growing region.
The region’s unrivaled natural beauty, thunderous waterfalls, covered bridges, wildlife viewpoints, as well as the warm hospitality of the locals provides an idyllic destination. Our Umpqua Valley family of wineries invites you to use your passport to discover the Land of Umpqua, our artisan wines and its people.
