Find Your Wine Preference in One Minute
While some of us believe a caramel latte is a defamation to espresso, others would rather shroud bitter coffee with warm milk. We might as well admit our tastes are different, to each their own or, as the French say, “à chacun son goût.”
Featured Artist — May 2018
Joanna French is our featured artist this month. Stop by the tasting room to meet Joanna on Sunday, May 6th from 2 to 5 pm with complimentary appetizers. Enjoy LIVE music featuring Charles Guy & Linda Powers from 3 to 5 pm.
“Making the world beautiful—one painting at a time
I have been painting with dye on silk for over 20 years. My interest in art began as an emotional refuge during an intense career, working as a Mental Health Therapist with combat veterans. Since retirement, I have continued silk painting because it has become a passion.
Silk painting is difficult. There are fewer than 200 professional silk picture painters in the U.S. It can be an exacting and unforgiving medium. Most of my finished works have been painted several times as I try to get them right! However, silk painting is also satisfying and constantly stimulating.
This rare art is not only challenging, it is also the basis for paintings with brilliant colors and flowing dye. It uses a tremendously wide variety of techniques and explodes with creativity. In short, silk painting is unique, inspiring, intriguing… and downright wonderful!”

RoxyAnn Winery Voted Favorite Vineyard/Winery
Best of Medford 2018. Favorite Vineyard/Winery again! Thank you to all that voted. Congratulations to our co-winner 2-Hawk Winery.
Greetings and Felicitations Roxyites!
Time for another (famed in song and story!) WINEMAKERS CORNER!!
Hopefully, all of you survived the arduous Holiday Season and are doing well. I guess if you didn’t survive you wouldn’t be reading this!
While things are slightly slower (and considerably colder) in the Winery (and Vineyard) things are still moving along. We have finished putting the 2017 vintage wines down into barrels and now we are taking the 2015 individual bottlings of red varietals out and getting them ready for bottling in February. At the same time, we are looking to finish the 2017 Pinot Gris (aka Medford water!), Viognier, and Sauvignon Blanc to bottle as well. Out in the Vineyard the vines are sleeping peacefully waiting for the sun, and warmer temps, to return so they can raise their leaves to the sky and do their ‘Salutations to the Sun’ yet again. Yeah, OK, I wax poetic, but it’s all I’ve got!!
Over at the Tasting Room, we are looking to add a new exterior covering to replace the tents. Do the Happy Dance, Raise the Roof, etc (all the things you hope to NEVER see me do!). This will mean we will not have to put up nor take down the tents EVER AGAIN!!!! YEA!!
So if you see the winemaking staff in the tasting room some afternoon or around the property we “should” all be in good spirits. Until the Bottling truck shows up that is.
So remember RoxyAnn wines are like Doritos…drink all you want and we’ll make more!

“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 are 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!”
