The Umpqua Valley, with its Red Hill Douglas County sub-AVA, acts as a transition zone between the cooler Willamette Valley to the North and the hotter Rogue Valley to the south. The Valley is 65 miles long (north to south) and 25 miles wide and is bordered to the east by the Cascade Mountains and to the west by the Coast Range; most vineyards are located below 1000 feet. German immigrants produced wines in the Umpqua Valley as early as the mid-1800s. Post-prohibition winemaking returned to Oregon in 1961 when Richard Sommers established Hillcrest Vineyards near Roseburg in the Umpqua Valley. Cooler regions of the Umpqua Valley produce Pinot Noir, Riesling and Chardonnay while warmer regions focus on Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.
