Viticulture and Oenology


Bjelland Vineyards and Hillcrest Vineyard are used as examples of the opportunities in the wine industry for farmers in the Roseburg area. The newly established Oregon Wine Growers Association (OWGA) has grown to 30 members with as many as 50 attending the monthly dinner meetings. By 1969, both Bjelland and Hillcrest have shown there is a demand for dry table wines reminiscent of European wines.
