Inspired by the Rogue Valley’s natural beauty and bounty, RoxyAnn Winery was founded in 2002 at the historic Hillcrest Orchard in east Medford that has been bearing fruit for over 100 years. Today, RoxyAnn Winery handcrafts bold and exciting wines that possess tremendous color, complexity and depth of flavor. Our winemaking relies upon a balanced and gentle process that fully expresses the unique attributes of the vineyard in our wines. RoxyAnn's extraordinary vineyard is located on the southwest slopes of Roxy Ann Peak; where the property's shallow, limestone-clay soils and southern solar exposure is ideally suited to producing Cabernet sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet franc, Grenache, Tempranillo, Viognier and Syrah.
