While producing exceptional Pinot Noir, the region’s growing list of vintners produce an array of award-winning wines, including: Baco Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Marechal Foch, Tempranillo, Sauvignon Blanc, Gruner Veltiner, Merlot, Malbec, Syrah and Riesling, and so much more.

Brew pubs are not necessarily new to Roseburg. What’s new is our growing brewery scene over the Umpqua Valley, but craft beer is making a strong comeback since its first start in the 1800’s when hops became a major crop in the area before Prohibition was enacted. Also growing are the number of special events related to craft brews. And, let’s not forget to mention the quality of our local brews.

 

Locals and visitors alike are drawn to the blend of good food, unique atmosphere and the wide array of locally crafted beers, ales and brewpubs throughout the Land of Umpqua. See Breweries
