Take a half hour drive (from Ashland) to Kriselle Cellars (close to Rogue Jet Adventures) where you can sit on the tasting room patio and enjoy a beautiful vista of their ranch while enjoying some of the tastiest wines Oregon has to offer.

Part of the Upper Rogue Wine Trail, here you can sip on wines “from Albarino to Zinfandel” as they say. Enjoy an outstanding Sauvignon Blanc (a smooth blend from three different vineyards, aged partly in barrel and partly in tank, giving it a creamy finish), Cabernet Sauvignon ($39), Malbec (wild berry, pepper spice, $32) or Tempranillo (little early one in Spanish).
