In 1971 Ted Gerber purchased 15 acres of rugged land in the Siskiyou Mountains, 7 miles from the California border. At the time, there were only 13 wineries in Oregon and NONE in the Rogue Valley. Armed with 30 years of climate data from the smokejumper station south of Cave Junction, Ore., a strong back, and a desire to get back to the land, little did he know that his leap-of-faith would place him among the pioneers of the Oregon Wine industry.

Today, Foris Vineyards spans 255 acres and is home to some of the most amazing stories you’ll ever hear…that, and great wine at good prices.

Our wines are loved by our customers and the critics.

Foris consistently produces a meticulously crafted, value lineup of Alsatian-inspired white wines. As with its siblings, this is crisp, detailed and balanced. Apple and pear fruit is lined with citrus rind. Give it a light chill and it will delight. Best Buy. -P.G.
2014 Pinot Gris – 90 pts “Best Buy”
Wine Enthusiast, Oct. 2015
Crisp, clean and fresh, this showcases yellow apple lightly dusted with cinnamon. Nicely balanced and immaculately rendered, it’s perfect for those occasions when Chardonnay is just a bit too heavy. Best Buy. -P.G.
2014 Pinot Blanc – 89 pts “Best Buy”
