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

OIur second visit and again, we were made to feel very welcome by Mrs. DeMara. We also got to meet Dyson DeMara! Wines were fabulous and we took home a whole bunch again! Look forward to returning next year!

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".

Excellent Wine + Great Location = Great time! The visit here is always one to remember, being very enjoyable from the minute we are greeted with a genuine warm welcome, throughout the fine tasting experience, to the drive home recounting our favorites. This time, we were lucky enough to have the owner as our guide through this tasting. He is... More

We spent a few days in southern Oregon exploring back roads and wineries. Someone recommended we stop in at Hillcrest Winery and we are so thankful we took that advice. The wine is so delicious and the wine maker is awesome to talk to. These wines are only sold out of the tasting room, so be prepared to fall ion... More

This was our 14th Oregon Winery and several people told us we must stop here for a tasting. We had never been to a winery during harvest so were unprepared for the loud cannons that are used to scare the birds from the fields. I stepped out, and being a Texan, thought someone was shooting at us! Had a good... More

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.
