Devitt Winery & Vineyards -
We are a boutique family-owned and operated winery located in the heart of the Applegate Valley, Oregon, dedicated to producing premium varietal wines from Estate and locally grown grapes.
The winery started out first as a vineyard and then moved into full wine production in 2003. "We went back into the wine business as a fluke. We had no home for our grapes and we did'nt want the birds to get the crop, so we decided to build the winery, make wine and sell from our tasting room," comments Jim Devitt, owner and winemaker.Sounds easy, right? Jim Devitt first started out in 1971 as the owner and winemaker of Pope Valley Winery in Napa County, who racked up many awards with his boutique wines. "It was not a big decision to go back into the wine business, and sell the vineyard juice in the form of wine. We designed and built the winery, applied for, and received our bonds, all in 2003," says Jim. They opened a tasting room over the July 4, 2004 weekend with one wine, a Pinot Gris. Since then the list has grown with many wines. All of our varietally labled wines are 100% of that variety.
