The goal is to build the Southern Oregon World of Wine into a destination event celebrating the wine industry and highlighting the culinary, hospitality, natural beauty, cultural and outdoor activities of Southern Oregon.

This  year’s  Southern  Oregon  World  of  Wine  is  set  for  August  18 – 22  at  the  historic  Bigham  Knoll  Campus  at  525  Bigham  Knoll  Drive  in  Jacksonville.  The  event  boasts wines  from 50 southern Oregon wineries and offers attendees a rare opportunity to meet the faces  of the area’s winemakers.

The  Wine  Competition  will  feature  some  of  the  best  wines  from  participating  wineries that  will  be  tasted  and  judged by a  panel of  renowned  judges,  who  traveled  from  all  over  the  country to participate. Blind tastings are done on Thursday and Friday of  the event.  The  winning wines will be showcased at the Medal  Dinner and Auction on Friday.

At the end of the week, participants are invited to enjoy a Grand Tasting event full of fine culinary and wine experience. Winemakers and owners from 50-plus wineries will showcase more than 100 of the best wines unique to the region. Enjoy musical entertainment and a silent auction.
