The Oregon Wine Lab is a place for all things local! Winemaker Mark Nicholl produces some phenomenal wines – check them out for yourself at his location on 5th and Lincoln. The 2012 Dry Riesling is out of this world. Cheers!
William Rose wines are local (just off 5th and Lincoln in Eugene), and delicious. Make sure and try the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon blend for a tart, but refreshing wine drinking experience. Cheers!
