Southern Oregon Wine Institute

Tasting Room

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the Tasting Room is CLOSED

Wines 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 winemaking 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.

Cellar Wine at the Southern Oregon Wine Institute

All SOWI wines are produced using fruit from the Umpqua Valley, Southern Oregon, or the Southern Willamette Valley as well as our own estate vineyards.  We also occasionally have fruit donated from conscientious growers who support our educational mission. 

SOWI Tasting Room :

SOWI serves an assortment of wines made at the institute for your tasting enjoyment. Additional items including beer and hard cider are offered as well.
