Come join our party! Each August, thousands of people gather for one of the biggest wine & culinary celebrations in Oregon. The Oregon Wine Experience® is a week-long event featuring extraordinary Oregon wines, amazing culinary creations, & one-of-a-kind experiences.

The Oregon Wine Experience® is back for its fourth annual gathering to celebrate everything Oregon, especially Oregon wine. Formerly known as Southern Oregon’s World of Wine, this expanded week-long festival returns to the familiar settings of the historic Bigham Knoll campus in beautiful Jacksonville, Oregon, with its signature events taking place from August 21-27.

Activities start with the Oregon Wine Competition®, followed by a wide array of wine-themed classes and exclusive vintner dinners leading into the main events: the Medal Celebration, the Founder’s Barrel Auction, the Miracle Auction & Salmon Bake, and the Grand Tasting on Sunday, August 27, 2017. Each activity provides a fascinating encounter for wine enthusiasts of all levels.
