GOLD HILL, OR – 8/9/2017 – While the grapes are beginning verasion and the winery team is preparing for the 2017 harvest just around the corner, we do have something that is ready to pick: Zinnias! Del Rio Vineyards Estate is excited to share that our Flower it Forward farm is now open.
The Zinnias are ready for picking and their main purpose: sharing. The flower farm was planted with the intent to spread joy. We invite you to join us in flowering it forward. The only rule we have is that for every bouquet you pick for yourself, you pick one for someone else. Share with someone in a care facility, a friend in need, a stranger who might benefit from a smile.
We also encourage people to bring their own vases, clippers, and buckets. Guests are welcome to pick flowers from dawn to dusk. Our tasting room is open daily from 11am to 6pm. (We will begin to close at 5pm on September 16th). Water and vases are available for those that do not have their own, and vase donations are happily accepted! The flowers are not for resale. Please do share your “Flower it Forward” adventures on Social Media. Tag us @delriovineyards and use hashag #floweritfoward

Together with a team of artisan winemakers, the Wallace’s are working their dream producing world class wines in the wild and unspoiled Rogue Valley.
