For more than two decades we have been working with growers the Moore family, crafting the highest-quality wines from their Rogue Valley vineyards since 1989. With temperatures similar to France's Bordeaux or Rhône regions, this area is an emerging Oregon region.
On the Nose: Allspice, Ceylon cinnamon and cedar emerge on a highly perfumed nose and lead to an elegant palate.
On the Palate: Filled with dark fruit flavors of red currant, ripe blackberries, figs and roasted hazelnuts. Bright, balanced and full-bodied, the tannins are fine-grained and integrated, creating a smooth and graceful sip.
Food Pairing: Pair the wine with red meat and other rich recipes, like beef tenderloin with French onion au jus, slow-cooked short ribs in red wine sauce, stuffed portobello mushrooms and molten dark chocolate cake.

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.
