Discover a year-round paradise. Welcome to Ashland.
At the convergence of the Cascade and Siskiyou Mountains, where forested alpine peaks give way to some of the most fertile and bio-diverse lands to have ever been shaped by geologic wonder and the hands of time, lies a town that’s just as unique and authentic as the terrain that surrounds it. Nowhere else do so many individual experiences – from performing, visual, and culinary arts, to education, wellness, and outdoor recreation – combine to create something so inspiring. While others may try, there’s only one authentic Ashland Oregon.

Discover a year-round wine paradise. Welcome to Vineyardland.
It’s not just the fabulous wine in the glass you’re tasting, but the commitment to open space and natural beauty that has supported the literal growth of the wine industry in Southern Oregon. The first wine in Oregon was produced in 1858 by photographer and horticulturist, Peter Britt (the namesake for Jacksonville’s Britt Festival). Today, Ashland serves as the perfect gateway to over 92 wineries, over 70 varietals of grapes, 1,800 acres of vineyards and over 200 growers that make up one of the most diverse wine growing regions in the world with its rugged mountain valleys and diverse microclimates. Enjoy a day trip wine tasting Bear Creek Boutique, Applegate or Upper Rogue wineries on your own or with one of the wine tour companies.
When you are in the southern Oregon area, be sure to visit Ashland.
