  • Ashland Vineyards and Winery, the area's first vineyard and winery, began over 18 years ago just two miles east of Ashland. The climate and growing conditions in this most southerly and easterly area of the Rogue Valley are the same as the Bordeaux region of France, making this 120-acre estate's south-facing organically farmed vineyards especially well suited for growing merlot, cabernet sauvignon, and cabernet franc. The estate vineyard is planted in over 10 different varietals, including merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, pinot gris, tempranillo, syrah, sangiovese, dolcetto, viognier, and several others. The organic environmental vineyard uses no pesticides, instead controlling pests with natural predators such as ladybugs and praying mantises.
    About the Wine:
    The winery produces two labels -- Ashland Vineyards and the upscale SHAKESPEARE™ brand.
    About the winemaker:
    Owner/winemaker Phil Kodak has a longstanding family history of winemaking dating back to the 1800s in South Africa. He also has several degrees in chemistry, taught chemistry at the university level, and took graduate-level oenology classes at the University of California - Davis.
