Friends enjoying wines at Irvine & Roberts Vineyards
By Travel Medford | 01/27/2021 | Wine


COVID has limited many wining and dining opportunities to only establishments that can serve outdoors. Courtesy of the Rogue Valley Wine Country, we have a list of open outdoor wineries to keep you tasting for weeks!

We've highlighted some of our favorite places to warm up beside the fire with a glass of wine. We invite you to check them out. See open wineries HERE.

Located in Central Point — just minutes from Medford — Hummingbird Estate has everything you desire for an afternoon of wine tasting.  Built in 1927 and originally known as the Carpenter House, this 47 acre estate is now home to a six varietal vineyard including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, Malbec, Viognier and Grenache.

Hummingbird Estate has ample outdoor seating and fire pits. They also offer blankets to visitors for snuggling up by the fire with wine. And if you find yourself not wanting to leave the grand elegance of this classic estate, you can also book one of their wine themed suites. Then you can relax by the fire for as long as you want, sipping your favorite red or white, and daydreaming the hours away.

Kriselle Cellars, located just north of Medford on the Upper Rogue Wine Trail and is a must stop during your winter wine tour in the Rogue Valley. Not only are they known for their world class wines, impeccable hospitality and knowledgable staff but they also have amble seating outdoors complimented by outdoor heaters. In and around their property, you will be greeted by the holiday spirit this winter as they are boasting seven Christmas trees! 

Gather around with your friends and celebrate a special occasion, even if it’s a Wednesday. Because when you’re sipping continuously award-winning wine around a fire pit with vineyard views, even Wednesdays are worth celebrating. Check their website for hours during the holidays.

Located just 5 miles from downtown Ashland and 20 from downtown Medford, Irvine & Roberts’ tasting room boasts stunning views of their estate vineyards and the surrounding Southern Cascade and Siskiyou mountain ranges. Their tasting room experience evokes the same elegance, balance and texture as their incredibly handcrafted wines. With unparalleled views of the rolling hills from every angle, it’s the perfect place to relax by their gorgeous outdoor stone fireplace, share a glass of Pinot Noir or Chardonnay with friends and gaze out at a real life wonderland.
