I love rustic wineries like this place. It's very country and that's cool with me. The tasting staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. The wines complex and clean. A great visit. Pro tip - in the winter it can be quite cold in the tasting room even though they try to heat the space with propane heaters.

Janet and Jennifer were so excellent! Both knew so much about the wines and were so welcoming. We came in and were told that tasting was $5 "unless you buy something". We of course left with a case and a half! It was truly one of the best winery experiences ever. Those ladies and the winery are so terrific! Highlight... More

Janet at the Winery is excellent. She knew we were there to buy, so she sold us some of her best. She is knowledgeable, fun to talk to and very customer service oriented. The Winery should be proud to have her as an employee

My brother and sister-in-law invited me to join them for wine tasting at Hillcrest Winery, which is their favorite. It is a delightful place. Janet, our host in the tasting room, was both fun and full of information. We tasted some exquisite wines (fee waived due to our purchases) and will be returning for sure.

The historic HillCrest Winery is an excellent stop on Roseburg's Wine Trail. The wines are top notch, the story and the narrative of the winery and the winemaker is quite interesting, and Jennifer, our host in the tasting room, is extremely knowledgeable. What could be better? The standard $5 per person for a tasting of multiple excellent wines is little... More

Of the 12 wineries we visited this was the TASTIEST by far. Jennifer was very knowledgeable, accommodating, and sweet! See you on the 21st Jen! : )

Dyson and Susan Demara do a great job with their wines. Delicious, and crafted to be enjoyed with food. Nice tasting room, and a wonderful experience. The tasting fee is waived with purchase.

We enjoyed the wine, However the lady working was talking 100 mph and constantly interrupting the guest. She would not let us carry on an actual conversation with the other people there and at one point a couple had to step outside to get a break from her. She made sure you knew about her classes and column and that... More

If there was only one winery you could pick to see while in Roseburg it would have to be this one. In real estate they say location, location, location. The title says it all.

A nice point of origin for the Oregon wine industry. The setting near the base of Callahan ridge, in foothills that an easterner might call mountains, is typical of other small wineries in Douglas county. The wine is excellent and the presentation and education in the rustic tasting room has been consistently enlightening in several visits. Although I have other... More
