Another beautiful property and a charming tasting room.  The GM, Margaret will
lead you through a tasting of Ric's wonderful wines, a cave tour and if you're
lucky, some older bottles might be open to taste.  Among the greats I had were
the '84 Cab and '89 Chard. (yes '89..
..I too was surprised!)

Located in the Rouge Valley in Southern Oregon outside historic Jacksonville
and Ashland.  Founded in the 1850's and resurected in 1972, this is wonderful
family owned estate.  It is well worth the time to visit and bring a picnic to enjoy
the beautiful setting and small production wines.  Standouts were the Viognier
and the Syrah from the Del Rio Vyd
