Wines

Cellar Wine at the Southern Oregon Wine InstituteWines produced by SOWI are labeled as The Cellars at the Southern Oregon Wine Institute. SOWI wines are produced with our students as part of their wine making coursework. Students harvest, crush, and press grapes in the fall term, learn about barrel storage and aging in the winter term, and stabilize, filter, and bottle wines during the spring term.

All SOWI wines are produced using fruit from the Umpqua Valley, Southern Oregon, or the Southern Willamette Valley. Most of the fruit has been purchased from some of the best growers in our region, but we also occasionally have fruit donated from conscientious growers who support our educational mission. As SOWI’s own vineyards come online in 2015, we will begin the production of estate wines.
