Devitt Winery

11412 Hwy 238 • Applegate Valley 541-899-7511

Devitt-roomDevitt is a boutique family-owned and operated winery located in the heart of the Applegate Valley dedicated to producing premium varietal wines from Estate and locally grown grapes.

The winery started out as a vineyard and then moved into full wine production in 2003. “We went back into the wine business as a fluke,” said Jim Devitt, owner and winemaker. “We had no home for our grapes and we did not want the birds to get the crop, so we decided to build the winery, make and sell wine from our tasting room.” 

Jim Devitt first started out in 1971 as the owner and winemaker of Pope Valley Winery in Napa County, which racked up many awards with his boutique wine. 

They opened a tasting room over the July 4, 2004, weekend with one wine, a Pinot Gris. Since then the list has grown for tasting and sales with Chardonnay, Shiraz Blush, Precipice (a blend), Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and a dessert wine called “Le Petite Oink.” All the reds except the Shiraz are “Estate Bottled” and 100% varietal.

Devitt Winery will keep it small and special because “It’s about each barrel and what makes it great!” 

You can also find Devitt Winery in many of the local restaurants and fine spirit stores in the area.
