Traveling the Interstate highway system can be a chore. It pays to get off the highway from time to time. Exiting the freeway in Roseburg, Oregon and seeking out Delfino Vineyards on Colonial Road is well worth the stop. The wine is excellent. The Tasting Room experience is only amplified by the opportunity to talk to the owner and the staff behind the bar. This winery is a labor of passion. Shannen is an excellent promoter of the wines and Terri Delfino tells the story of planting unique varieties of grapes well-suited to the Umpqua Valley. The vineyard includes Tempranillo, Muller Thurgau, Zinfandel, Dolcetto, and Syrah. We are looking forward to possibly staying in the B&B guest house on a future trip.
