Grapes, Gliders & Grass Pants

I’ve been spending a lot of time in Southern Oregon lately, which has proved to be a somewhat unexpected trove of very talented artisans and exciting food and wine finds. When I go, my home base is the super charming historic town of Jacksonville (NOT to be confused with the not nearly as charming Jacksonville, Florida), which, in addition to being the perfect spot to spend a romantic weekend with your main squeeze or getaway with your good-time girls/boys, is the gateway to the Applegate Valley, a peaceful, picturesque landscape hiding nearly 20 top notch wineries in its rolling hills.

Happy trails!
