We are new in the area and decided to explore some of the wineries. We found Hillcrest to be a delightful experience. Jennifer is very knowledgeable, friendly and humorous as she pours each taste. She makes you feel very welcome and at home. We were fortunate to be there while Susan, one of the owners, was bottling a new wine.... More

This winery was my favorite one that my friends and I visited while in Oregon! It is small and quaint with great wine! The owner of the winery, Dyson, is the absolute best! He was very busy with harvest, but on his break he showed us around and educated us and helped with our wine tasting personally! It was so... More

Dyson and his wife Susan are the owners of this Winery. They are both wonderful people. Their winery is the oldest winery that has made Pinot Noir. They have good relations with other European wineries and share blending expertise. I have seen only good and great wines from HillCrest !

A small production winery that doesn't sell outside. Some hidden gems make it worth including on an Umqua wine tour.

One of the best wineries I've visited. I've had the opportunity to visit several U.S. wineries and also some in Italy and this ranks in the top. It isn't the biggest or most well known that I've visited but there wasn't another one where I was given a tour by the owner of the winery! He is warm and inviting... More

The Oldest Winery in the Umpqua Valley has Excellent wines. This is a must stop on any wine tour for those that really appreciate fine wines. So many fine wines that all are not on the tasting list which is sad. Phenom, Frappato, Chardonnay are three of my favorites but there are many more in my cellar!

My husband and I returned to Hillcrest on a recent trip to Oregon after remembering it from many years ago. The beautiful country drive to Hillcrest is part of the charm. The tasting room staff was friendly and helpful, not only pouring their delicious wines, but giving us ideas about dinner houses in the Roseburg area. Of course we bought... More

The tasting room is nice. We pretty much had the place to ourselves and the staff was helpful and informative about local attractions and history. Being a fan of big bold red wines I wasn't much impressed with their selection but they did have some lighter fare that many would consider more "drinkable".
