For more than two decades we have been working with the Moore family, dedicated growers crafting the highest-quality wines from their Rogue Valley vineyards since 1996. With temperatures similar to France's Bordeaux or Rhône regions, this area is an emerging Oregon region.
On the Nose: The nose opens with notes of red cherry, raspberry, vanilla and dark chocolate.
On the Palate: The palate expresses dark fruit notes of blackberry and blueberry with dried herbs and baking spices. The wine is structured with persistent tannins and balancing acidity and a finish that carries lingering notes of tart cranberry and holiday spice.
Food Pairings: Mediterranean lamb burgers, balsamic glazed meatloaf, beef stew and wood-fried flatbread topped with sausage and mushrooms.

Quail Run Vineyards
Rogue Valley AVA
Pioneers of the Oregon wine industry, Don and Traute Moore have been cultivating vines at their Quail Run Vineyards in the Rogue Valley since 1989, growing varietals from all over the world. What they discovered through careful site selection and temperatures similar to France’s Bordeaux or Rhône regions was the ability to grow a “world of wine” in the Rogue Valley as the varietals flourished. Their site is now one of Oregon’s largest and highly regarded vineyards in the industry.
Quail Run Vineyards is LIVE Certified and collaborate closely with universities on multiple experiments to improve grape quality, improve soils and pest management practices.
Shortly after partnering with Quail Run Vineyards to make our first vintage in 1996,
our Griffin Creek Merlot was named “Best Red Wine in Oregon” by Wine Spectator.
