2014 BIG FIRE TEMPRANILLO VINEYARD INFORMATION
100% Melrose Vineyard
ABOUT THE VINEYARD
The Melrose Vineyard is located on 150 acres in the Umpqua Valley near the town of Roseburg, Oregon. The original vineyard of 82 acres was planted in the summer of 1996. In 2009, an additional 100 acres were planed approximately nine miles North of the main vineyard. Vineyard owner Wayne Parker planted this Tempranillo as an experiment in 2006, at Rob’s request. The vineyard is south facing and the soil is sandy loam, all of which contributed to the idea that Tempranillo would do well here. And so it did.
