River’s Edge Winery, founded in 1998, specializes in the production of the highest quality pinot noir wines. Two estate vineyards, Black Oak and Elkton, located in the northern most part of the Umpqua Valley of Oregon are the primary sources for our wines. These two vineyards were planted in 1972 and are among the oldest in the state. The climate in our part of the valley is distinctive (much cooler) from the rest of the Umpqua, which was recently (2/13) officially recognized by the federal TTB with the creation of the Elkton Oregon American Viticultural Area, or AVA. The AVA encompasses the northwest corner of the Umpqua Valley AVA, with no boundary more than eight miles from Elkton. Our wine making style emphasizes a low-tech, hands-on approach utilizing small batch fermentation, exclusively barrel aging and bottling without fining.
The winery is located in the tiny river town of Elkton overlooking the Umpqua River. We welcome visitors for tours and tasting. Please take the virtual tour of our winery and vineyards and consider a future visit. The tasting room is open 11am to 5pm daily, except Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, New Years, and July 4th.
