This Month’s Featured Wine:
Foris Winery is a Rouge Valley, Or. producer of wines and newest partner of The Nines and Urban Farmer. A select pour from this vineyard will be offered daily to guests of The Nines.
According to wine industry experts, three main factors influence people whether or not to purchase a bottle: the type of wine, its taste, and where it’s produced. And in the Rogue Valley of Oregon, one producer has been proving for decades that it checks all of those boxes.
In 1974, Ted Gerber, owner of Foris Vineyards, began growing grapes, and in 1978, he started selling them commercially to wineries across the Pacific Northwest. Then in 1986, Foris Vineyards began producing wine, and decades later, its wines are enjoyed in 44 states, four Canadian provinces, and even Japan. The wines consistently receive high scores, gold medals, and “best buy” status.
“We have four ranches, adding up to 188 acres of planted grapes, in a valley, brushed up against the back of the flatlands, forest, and timber-filled hillside,” says Gerber. “The setting is stunning, and you really couldn’t ask for a much better place in terms of quality living.”
