Gorgeous surroundings, nice tasting room, well-priced wines should you decide to take a few bottles home (and why not?). Lots of open space for a nice stroll, or even a picnic.

We did a small wine tasting tour and the owners were very friendly and informative. They even let us go in the back where they press the grapes and keg the wine. This was some of my favorite wine that we brough home with us. They only sell their wine on site so if you want it get it while you are there.

I had lived in Roseburg, OR for a few years and during the first couple of months, we made a short trip to Hillcrest Vineyards. We had been to most of the others in the area already. I will never forget this truly magical experience. It was in 2004 and the DeMara family had just recently purchased the property. Dyson chuckled at me and commented that I must not be from the area. I asked why and he looked down and said, "Oregonians dont wear sneakers", I immediately felt comfortable. Dyson and Susan are both wonderful people. Then we started tasting. Reisling, Chardonnay, Cabernet, and the list goes on and on. I do believe I had his first Pinot Noir, then came my alltime favorite. Della Terra "15" 2003! Unbelievable and this is the reason I say it was a magical experience. They turned me into a wine lover. They are both so knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. When you become a regular, like I was, you almost feel like family. They truly are deserving of all the success they have aquired. I have now been to over 250 wineries nationwide and when people ask me which one is my favorite, I smile, because Hillcrest is what my pallet tastes! Simply the best!!! Thanks to you both for all of the wonderful memories. Wine DOES taste like a place!
