Our group of 8 stopped in at HillCrest for tasting, we like many of their wines and this visit was no exception. We asked for a tour and were given a brief one. The employee put up with all our questions and even took a couple of group photos for us.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience here at our family's winery. It sounds like you have been before and we are appreciative that you have returned with so many beautiful wines and wineries produced here in the Umpqua Valley. It is our goal to produce the most natural, artisan wines possible. From Dry farmed, hillside, old vines to our patented concrete fermentors and European 1300 gallon oak tanks we reach back in time to use the best of the old world where we have over 40 years of winemaking under our belt. These handcrafted wines are not sold in stores. Oregon's oldest estate winery and the birthplace of Pinot Noir and the PNW only winery that is a state historical site. To the Genie in the bottle.

Oldest winery in Oregon. My daughter and I were visiting from Minnesota. Of the three wineries we visited it provided the most variety of flights. Jennifer was so friendly and felt like an old friend. I did have some wine shipped back to Minnesota and it was here within a week.

Thank you Chris B for taking the time to share your experience at our family's winery. the Le Pig (Barbera) meant to go with all things pork is a perennial favorite. As I write this I am working on the next vintage so we don't run out as we have before. We love to share our experience making wine here in Oregon as well as around the world and will make sure to share with our tasting room your kind words. Thank you again and to the Genie in the bottle!

This was my second visit to Hillcrest and both have been wonderful. Our first visit the owner took time out of his day to show us around. His excitement of explaining the wine making process was very interesting. Our second visit was this month and was equally great. Jennifer

Greetings Kandice and thank you for your second visit and taking the time to share your experience. We love what we do and go out of our way to show visitors the most casual and educational wine tasting in the Umpqua Valley. Our "Old World" approach has been recognized not only here in Oregon, but in Vienna, Austria, and with the international organization SLOW WINE. The fact that the wines in the tasting room are not sold in stores allows everyone to take home something truly unique. Once again thank you for you support of our family's wines and we will share your kind words with Jennifer. To the Genie in the bottle!

Went on an Umpqua Valley wine tour with a group of wonderful ladies this weekend. Hillcrest was our first stop and so glad it was on the list. The wine tasting experience was relaxed and so enjoyable. Jennifer was exceptionally friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the

Thank you for the kind words Inicol4. Richard Sommer, "the Father of Oregon Wine" founded HillCrest in 1961 and the rest is history. Among Richards first's were the first stainless steel fermenters in America and maybe the world, Oregon's first Pinot Noir planted and bottled, Co-founder of the Oregon Winegrowers Association and many others. We love sharing our dry farmed, hillside wines along with their unique histories. Our tasting room, as you have experienced is the most educational and entertaining in the Umpqua Valley. We will share you kind words with them and we look forward to your return visit. Cheers and to the Genie in the bottle!
