Troon Vineyard is located in the Applegate Valley between Grants Pass and Jacksonville, Oregon in the Rogue Valley AVA. Dick Troon planted the vineyard in 1972, making it one of the first in Southern Oregon.
Like many wineries in the Applegate Valley, Troon specializes in warm weather varieties like Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon, but they also produce rarer varieties like Tannat and Vermentino. For more information, please refer to the Troon Vineyard website.
