Morrison's Rogue River Lodge sits in the middle of some of the best river rafting opportunities available, whether you're longing for a scenic float trip or a thrill-a-minute whitewater adventure. The river has stretches of calm water in beautiful canyons that funnel into narrow rocky channels full of Class III whitewater rafting excitement.
Your three-day adventure includes exploring the river by rafting, experiencing the wilderness on land and by relaxing two nights in wilderness lodges with delicious meals paired with RoxyAnn wine, comfy beds, and private bathrooms.
After each day of rafting, you'll have the leisure to experience the wilderness on land at your already-prepared campsites. Lounge in the shade with your favorite drink, take a hike, go swimming, play a game, or read a book. While you have relax and have fun, your guides cook an incredible meal using traditional Dutch oven and open fire barbecue when allowed. Our guides use only the freshest ingredients available, and dinners around the campfire are extraordinary. In the morning, you'll get your wakeup call and a steaming cup of coffee. A full country breakfast will start you off for another memorable day on the river.

Winemaker's Corner — A View From The Vineyard
Spring has sprung here at RoxyAnn and the vines have awoken from their winter slumbers and poked their little leaves out to the Sun. Because of our mild Winter this event is happening at a record early date. The ramifications of this are multi, it can precede a long and high quality growing season, it can mean that they will get slammed by a Spring frost and set things back or even ruin the season (nothing good in this industry is ever without risk), or we can have a normal length season (of the usual high quality, of course!) and have the Harvest start in late July or early August! We'll just have to wait and see what Mother Nature gives us this year!
Otherwise in the Winery we are putting together the bottling blends for our July bottling. It will be featuring the bottling of our 2013 Claret, 2014 Chardonnay, 2014 Pinot Noir, and the 2013 Honor Barn. So we are busy selecting barrels to retain for the individual varietal bottlings (which will take place next February) and putting together the Claret Blend so that it will have some time to come together before the bottling date. I'm pretty excited about the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir as they will be some of the first wines out to market (after the Pinot Gris) that I was directly involved in making!
Lastly (believe it or not) we are starting planning for the 2015 Harvest! Yes, it months away but we have to look at space requirements, barrel purchases, projected yields in the vineyards. Enjoy! Kent B

RoxyAnn Wine Reviews
Our wines have received exceptional reviews and quality ratings from magazines such as "Portland Monthly" to reviews from "BTI" and "Wine Enthusiast" to "The 50 BEST Wines in Oregon".
|Portland Monthy writes, "IF LOVE IS BLIND, falling for a great wine should happen sight unseen. From classic Pinot to hot-blooded Tempranillo, Oregon wine can hit some amazing highs. But how to choose the best? This year, we asked nine of Portland’s savviest wine pros to pick their favorite current releases."
Wine tastings were conducted over four days, fully blind, with hundreds of brown-bagged bottles hiding their stories and secrets from the panelists’ discerning noses and palates. Wines that made it through to the finals were then carefully tasted for fruit characteristics, acidity, alcohol, balance, tannins, and overall quality, with every decision surrounded by plenty of healthy debate. The result? Our 2009 Claret and 2009 Tempranillo list of Oregon’s 50 most lovable wines available.
