We took off one day for an easy tour of one of the wine growing regions of Southern Oregon. We left Grants Pass Oregon and within 15 minutes were driving in the picturesque Applegate Valley. It was a warm early November day and we had set out to enjoy the Fall foliage. On a whim we stopped at the Troon Vineyard to sample some of their wines. The window behind the counter of the new tasting room gave us a view of a portion of their vinyard where clusters of dark purple grapes were still hanging. Jennifier was our sommelier and guided us through a sampling that included the usual varietals. The wines were all very good and I confessed to her that I had a weakness for blended wines. We tasted their wine called Druid's Fluid which the winery dubbed "Their great mistake". It was excellent with all the flavor of real wine and not the overpowering sweetness of a "pop" wine. We left with 10 bottles including a seasonal sweet wine that is served warmed. They had a beautiful garden where we might have enjoyed our wine but chose to take our bounty home and finish our Fall tour. It was a very wonderful trip.

Friendly people. Nice cheese and meat platter and great patio to sit outside. Charge for tasting is waived when you buy two bottles per taster. About a 20 minute drive from Grants Pass.

We stopped by this winery just to see the vineyards and ended up buying two bottles of wine we sampled. The staffer was great...she explained the wines very well and we enjoyed the tastings. We'll go back next time we are in the area. RB

We came upon Troon by mere accident and were happy that we had. The tasting was delightful and the sommelier who attended us was knowledgeable of the various wines We purchased a few bottles and were happily surprised to see their wines featured at our dinner spot. The Druid Fluid is especially good.
