Two acres of vineyard property along the west-facing knoll of the SOWI facility were designated the Scott Henry Vineyard, in recognition of Roseburg vintner C. Scott Henry III and his vision and steadfast commitment to the SOWI project.
Two years later an additional two acres of Tempranillo and Syrah were planted and named after SOWI supporter, Charlie Williams. Both vineyards have been certified sustainable through the Low Impact Viticulture and Ecology (LIVE) organization.
The SOWI vineyards offer an excellent opportunity for students to learn proper vineyard development principles, including trellis placement, crop management and drip irrigation installation. In addition, students have a living laboratory in which to learn the practical application of vineyard management principles.
