Wooldridge Creek Winery is located in the heart of the Applegate River Valley in Southern Oregon. The winery and vineyards are located on a rolling hillside overlooking the majestic Applegate River Valley and features about 56 acres planted in twelve varieties. The winery produces 5,000 cases per year of premium varietal wines and unique blends.
Wooldridge Creek Winery specializes in small batches of estate wines, artisan cheeses, and charcuterie—all locally sourced and made onsite using sustainable practices that go beyond organic to care for the soil, wildlife, and their local watershed.
Southern Oregon’s Wild & Scenic Rogue River flows 215 miles from its headwaters near Crater Lake to the Pacific Ocean. As it makes its way through the lushly forested Siskiyou Mountains of old-growth conifers and meadows, abundant wildlife can be found. Playful river otters, merganser ducks, black-tailed deer, turtles and black bear are often within sight, and majestic osprey and bald eagles can sometimes be seen fighting for a freshly-caught salmon overhead.
The Rogue’s exciting Class III rapids and warm water lend itself to a variety of water craft including spunky inflatable kayaks, paddle rafts and oar rafts. Swimming, hiking, fishing and historical points of interest along the river abound. Camping on one of the sandy beaches along the river offers the perfect setting for relaxing with a glass of wine or a refreshing beer. Ahhh, the Rogue might just be the perfect Oregon river trip.
