I was hosted for a luncheon and tasting here with a group of fellow wine bloggers, and I enjoyed everything about this winery. Melrose Vineyards is located near the South Umpqua River and the owner (and all-around down-to-Earth farmer) Wayne Parker is a real gem. He planted the original vineyard here in 1996 and in a few years, began selling his fruit to other wineries. Soon, Wayne decided to start his own boutique winery. Today, that tasting room sits in a photogenic barn that's a century old.

The tasting room is part wine sampling station, part gift shop. If you're looking for wine-themed chotchkes or a souvenir to carry back home, this is your place. From necklaces to magnets to gourmet food items to t-shirts, the boutique at Melrose has what you're looking for. I had a ton of fun browsing the various knick-knacks for sale. There's a large tasting bar and a small outdoor balcony with a couple of tables and stunning views of the landscape. I would recommend trying to snag one of the outdoor tables if you're here for a tasting but if they are full, at least step outside to snap a few photos.

My group was served a light and bright lunch from the winery's chef, who also helps cater group events. We were served a portion of vegetable lasagna with a small salad and garlic bread. The food was all vegan (even made with fake "cashew cheese") and while I was skeptical, it did taste good and was made with farm-fresh ingredients.

Due to Wayne's outrageous hospitality, he literally poured anything any of us wanted. Yes, anything. I finally stopped at a dozen wines, although I wanted to try it all. I kept asking Wayne what I should try next, and he didn't steer me wrong. Out of the wines I tried, there were a couple that I found to meet or exceed my expectations.

The first was the Parker's Pinot Noir (priced at $45, this was the most expensive wine for sale). This wine had a long finish and slightly harsh tannins that probably need a few more months to a year to calm down. But the structure and flavor of this wine was very good.

On the opposite spectrum, the $18 Two Dog Red was a fantastic poolside sipper. This blush wine is bright pink with an adorable, eye-catching label that was created by an artist from Hawaii. You may be drawn in by the gimmicky name and cartoon label, but this is a crowd-pleasing wine with crisp, slightly sweet pineapple and cherry fruit notes. This is a wine that even your friend who swears she "doesn't like wine" will not only be able to drink, but will likely love.

For those seeking a white that's a little bit different, try the Pinot Gris ($20). With its pale straw color and melon-heavy nose, this wine is also interesting enough to recommend.

It's worth mentioning that there's something wine-wise here that will fit into almost everyone's budget. The wines are very fairly priced, with the most expensive bottle topping out just below $50.

To me, Melrose offers a real Oregon experience. From the extensive porfolio of myriad varietals to the renovated old barn, it doesn't get much better. And if you get the chance to chat with Wayne, take it.

We were staying nearby, and after reading all the wonderful reviews, decided to check out Melrose Vineyards. We are so glad that we did! The tasting room and grounds are beautiful, with several parking options available for a future visit with our 40ft 5th wheel (Melrose is a Harvest Host member). The wines available for tasting were extensive, but we chose to stick with reds and were not disappointed. We loved them all, so hard to choose a favorite. Highly recommend the dolcetto and the baco noir. Carrie, the wine maker’s wife and our lovely server, was quite knowledgeable and fun to hang out with. We can’t wait to come back with our rig for a longer visit.😊

Melrose is a great little winery in lovely setting. Their tasting room is well appointed with contains a tasteful selection of gifts and merchandise for those who may not drink, but enjoy some leisurely shopping at reasonable prices. The lady at the tasting counter was well informed about their wines and helped my sister-in-law and me choose the perfect ones. This charming little winery had the perfect ambiance and such a welcoming staff. I will definitely return the next time we visit Roseburg.

The Facilities were good , but terrible rules . The wedding started at 5:30 guest were not allowed down till 4:15 even though everything was set up in the morning , mind you 100 % traveled to this location and it was in the 90's . All cost were way to high Facilities were not worth the cost . could not use your own catering , actual cost 25 per plate i might have paid 7.00 , couldn't bring your own kegs of beer ,there price almost double of what you could buy it from a bar. over all facility not very ADA friendly , had to ask for the lights to be turned on for stairs after several people tripped trying to leave . Only one wine was tolerable.

Melrose has a casual wine tasting atmosphere with a beautiful view of their landscaped lawn area, popular for a romantic wedding venue. The owner is very passionate about enjoying life, food and of course, wine.
