While its unofficial town motto may be “The Timber Capital of the Nation,” there is much more to Roseburg, Oregon than logging. Roseburg is a wine lover’s paradise, and also offers ample opportunities to explore the scenic beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
If you are visiting Roseburg, Oregon, make sure to stay with Choice Hotels for easy access to the following local attractions:
Although not a “museum,” the Riversdale Valley Farm has one of the richest collections of items in the entire region. The term “vintage” is taken to another level with a huge variety of items from furniture to toys to art pieces. Each item comes with a unique story, and a day may not be enough to hear them all! And if you fall in love with anything in particular, you may be able to purchase it and make it part of your collection.
Wine lovers will love how Roseburg is home to a strong lineup of wineries waiting to share the fruit of the Umpqua Valley. Make one of your stops at the Reustle Prayer Rock Vineyards for a truly unique wine-tasting experience in a biblical setting. As you take your sips in the Wine Cave, notice the angel carvings on the walls and Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam” above you.
Continue your wine tour to Abacela Winery and take advantage of their Tempranillo wines. Tempranillo grapes are native to Spain but also thrive in the Southern Oregon climate. The folks of Abacela are passionate about sharing this varietal with North America and are eager to give you a taste.
Self-proclaimed as “Oregon’s Oldest Estate Winery”, HillCrest Winery and Distillery prides itself on producing wines from the state’s oldest vineyards using classic techniques. The production is limited, but special – the wines contain a unique intensity and character not found anywhere else in the region. Be sure to pick up a bottle when you visit, as you won’t find it in any store.
Before you conclude your wine adventure, be sure to pay a visit to the Becker Vineyard just a short drive north of town. Visitors can expect an intimate, memorable experience with the owners who produce and bottle the wine themselves. Once you finish sampling the wines, enjoy the fresh Pacific Northwestern air as you walk along its nature trail.
If you are looking to enjoy more of the outdoors without a long drive, add Watson Falls to your itinerary. Lace up your hiking boots and bring your camera on a hike full of green to a stunning view of a waterfall that plunges 272-feet, with plenty of photo opportunities along the way.
