Umpqua Valley Wine:

The Umpqua Valley, with its Red Hill Douglas County sub-AVA, acts as a transition zone between the cooler Willamette Valley to the North and the hotter Rogue Valley to the south. The Valley is 65 miles long (north to south) and 25 miles wide and is bordered to the east by the Cascade Mountains and to the west by the Coast Range; most vineyards are located below 1000 feet. German immigrants produced wines in the Umpqua Valley as early as the mid-1800s. Post-prohibition winemaking returned to Oregon in 1961 when Richard Sommers established Hillcrest Vineyards near Roseburg in the Umpqua Valley. Cooler regions of the Umpqua Valley produce Pinot Noir, Riesling and Chardonnay while warmer regions focus on Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.


Average annual precipitation is quite variable across this very diverse county, with greatest amounts along the coast and in the Coast Range west of Elkton. Average totals in those areas are between 60 and 80 inches, with North Bend, in nearby Coos County, receiving 63.78 inches annually. East of the Coast Range, amounts decrease rapidly to between 40 and 60 inches, with 51.47 inches normal at Elkton. The central valleys of the county receive between 30 and 40 inches, with normals of 30.41 inches at Riddle and 32.40 inches at Roseburg. In the foothills east of Roseburg and Myrtle Creek amounts increase to between 40 and 65 inches, with 62.91 inches normal at Idleyld Park, near the Forest Service boundary. The southern part of the county has quite variable precipitation, mainly aligned with elevation. Average annual amounts range from around 30 inches in the lowest valleys to around 60 inches on the highest peaks. The amount of precipitation that falls during the growing season (between April and October) in the central part of the county near Roseburg is about 9 inches, which is less than 30 percent of the average annual total. The heaviest 1-day rainfalls during the periods of record were: 6.36 inches at Elkton on December 7, 1981; 6.72 inches at Idleyld Park on November 22, 1961; 3.86 inches at Riddle on October 29, 1950; 4.35 inches at Roseburg on November 19, 1996; and 6.67 inches at North Bend on November 18, 1996. Thunderstorms occur on about 5 days each year, and most occur between May and September.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture Soil Conservation Service, the predominant soil classification for this farm unit is provided below.

Desirable Soil Types for Grapes:

The soil composition of vineyards is one of the most important vinicultural considerations when planting grape vines. The soil supports the root structure of the vine and influences the drainage levels and amount of minerals and nutrients that the vine is exposed to. The ideal soil condition for a vine is a layer of thin topsoil and subsoil that sufficiently retains water but also has good drainage so that the roots do not become overly saturated. The ability of the soil to retain heat and/or reflect it back up to the vine is also an important consideration that affects the ripening of the grapes. There are several minerals that are vital to the health of vines that all good vineyard soils have. These include calcium which helps to neutralize the Soil pH levels, iron which is essential for photosynthesis, magnesium which is an important component of chlorophyll, nitrogen which is assimilated in the form of nitrates, phosphates which encourages root development, and potassium which improves the vine metabolisms and increases its health for next years crop.

Douglas County:

Douglas County is a county in the U.S. state of Oregon. As of the 2010 census, the population was 107,667. The county seat is Roseburg. It is named after Stephen A. Douglas, an American politician who supported Oregon statehood.

History of Douglas County:

The area originally was inhabited by the Umpqua Indians, who speak a language in the Athabaskan language family (although some linguists put it in the Penutian family). Following the Rogue River Indian War in 1856, most of the remaining natives were moved by the government to the Grand Ronde Indian Reservation. However, seven families of Umpqua hid in the hills, eluding capture for many decades. They are now federally recognized as the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians. The tribe manages a small reservation in Canyonville, Oregon, and has a Casino/Hotel named Seven Feathers to represent the seven families who refused forced removal to the Grand Ronde Reservation. Douglas County was created on January 7, 1852, from the portion of Umpqua County which lay east of the Coast Range summit. In 1856 the Camas Valley was annexed to Douglas County from Coos County. In 1862, the rest of Umpqua County was absorbed into Douglas County, some say due to the loss of population following the end of the early gold boom, while others attribute the absorption to politics. Further boundary adjustments were made with Jackson and Lane Counties in 1915.

South Umpqua River:

The South Umpqua River is a tributary of the Umpqua River, approximately 115 miles (185 km) long, in southwestern Oregon in the United States. It drains part of the Cascade Range east of Roseburg. The river passes through a remote canyon in its upper reaches then emerges in the populated South Umpqua Valley east of Canyonville. It rises in the high Cascades north of Fish Mountain, formed by the confluence of two short forks in eastern Douglas County approximately 20 miles (32 km) northwest of Crater Lake. It flows generally southwest through a remote canyon in the Umpqua National Forest to Tiller, then west past Milo and Days Creek. It emerges into the South Umpqua Valley at Canyonville, passing under Interstate 5 and flowing north along the highway past Tri-City, Myrtle Creek, and Roseburg. It joins the North Umpqua from the south to form the Umpqua approximately 6 miles (10 km) northwest of Roseburg. It receives Cow Creek from the south approximately 5 miles (8 km) southwest of Tri-City. One of the main tributaries of the South Umpqua River is Cow Creek, which also flows west from the Cascade Mountains, but South of Canyonville. On its westward journey, the Cow Creek more or less runs parallel to the South Umpqua River, with an East-West mountain ridge separating them. Cow Creek runs further west, swings around north and makes its confluence with the South Umpqua River at Tri City. The Cow Creek has such a significant flow that it is almost a toss-up as to which should be called the river and which the creek.
