RoxyAnn Vintage Wine Discovery

Whenever I shop, I always visit the wine section.  This past weekend I stopped in the Ruch Market.  To my surprise, there were 3 bottles of 2011 Syrah and 6 bottles of 2014 Claret.  We are currently sold out of those two vintages in the tasting room.  So, the next time you are en route to the Applegate stop by the Ruch Market and visit the wine section.

Featured Artist — My Mystic Art — March 2019

Cherie Pierce is our featured artist this month.


I grew up in Southern Oregon and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminology at Southern Oregon University, hoping to ultimately better my life and my son’s. After graduating, I went on a self-discovery mission, so to speak, and was finally able to discover what I truly loved doing. I learned many skills and gained an incredible amount of knowledge regarding a variety of things during my journey. When I rediscovered painting, I instantly knew it was what I was looking for and what I needed. Growing up, I have always loved painting and the oasis it created for me, and when I came across this style, I fell in love. My new “hobby” became a passion and it absolutely consumed me. I studied many aspects of acrylic fluid painting and was able to develop my own style. I love how unpredictable fluid art is. I can control certain variables such as the colors, mixture, techniques, and method, but the final outcome is always a bit of a surprise. There is some science involved that deals with the density of the paint and the materials used, but ultimately, the paint does what it wants. This style of art can be interpreted in many ways, insanely messy, so much fun and absolutely fascinating. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

Winemaker’s Corner

Well, Hidey Ho, there Roxyites!

It’s time again for another (highly anticipated) Wine Makers Corner!!

OK, a quick update on all things Roxy. As usual, the Yumbrusco was released in the tasting room. Just in time for the Holidays (well, sort of!!). No, we don’t have the Sherry bottled yet, but we did come up with a clever name for it…Ready now? Sherry!!! We got another award at the SF Chronicle competition (Gold) on the 14 Cab Sauv (no pressure for the 15!!). I was awarded a verbal High Five on the 14 Reserve Cab Sauv by the Roxy Regulars (you know who you are!). Also, we will have a bottling of the BFR (Brenda “Fine” Rose). No, we will be calling it Rose, but only because I forgot to get the “BFR” on the label somewhere before it was printed! Next Year! We have all the wines in the tank for our upcoming bottling the middle of February. So now we will do that ‘Voodoo that We Do’ to them and get them finished to be ready to bottle. So if you come by the Winery the week of the 11th, and the Cellar Boys (Fred, Ian, or Bob) look tired, put out, or angry it means I’m doing my usual job of making their lives miserable!! Oh, and WE ARE BOTTLING!

Out in the Vineyards we have removed some additional vines infected with the Red Blotch virus (the scourge of Southern Oregon). We will be replanting to replace the vines as time goes by. In the meantime, we have found an excellent source of grapes till we can have our own again. All the other vines are waiting patiently for their turn at being scalped…I mean pruned, to be ready for when it gets warmer and we have Bud Break. And so the Cycle of Life will begin again! Well, OK, the process of making wine begins again. But then If You Are Reading This Our Wines Must Be Your Life? Right?!?

Well, time for me to climb back under the desk until Fred wakes me for some “important” winemaker thing.

All the Best from the Bunker!! ~KB

Southern Oregon — WineEnthusiast’s Top 10 Travel Destinations

We all know the story of Oregon wine no longer begins and ends with Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Southern Oregon has been hailed by WineEnthusiast as one of “The 10 Best Travel Destinations” in the world!

Not listed in the article are three of my favorite Southern Oregon wine events; The Annual JPR Wine Tasting Event & Auction, A Taste of Ashland, and The Oregon Wine Experience.

By the way, if you are wondering who is toasting a glass of bubbles in the “Where to Dine” section, it is our very own Steven Addington. It was an incredible evening of amazing food and wine spent with Eric & Julie Weisinger and friends at The Loft in downtown Ashland.

The Cottage at Hillcrest Orchard

This historic little cottage boasts an incredible location for wine tasting and gorgeous views. Located on the grounds of the 250 acre Hillcrest Orchard Estate and RoxyAnn Winery, The Cottage will not disappoint for your next getaway!
Enjoy a complimentary wine tasting or glass of wine at the RoxyAnn Tasting Room.

“This place is a rare find for all the right reasons! Easily one of the coolest Airbnbs that I’ve stayed at. I arrived on a Friday night just in time for the live band and food truck by the tasting room. Barbara provided all the information and made sure everything was taken care of during my short stay. Make sure you get there early to taste some wine (the Malbec was my favorite). The staff is super friendly and the room is filled with witty wine quotes. Will definitely stay here again next time! PS. do NOT leave this place without getting a few bottles of wine =).”

“Terry and Barbara’s cottage was great! We went after harvest and the grounds are still beautiful. The staff in the tasting room was super friendly and even helped explain some of the wines to novice drinkers. We will definitely book this place again for our next journey through the area. Tastefully remodeled and comfortable all around!”
