Hero-Story

Just minutes from the exciting Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon, Belle Fiore Winery provides a magnificent Italian wine pavilion and Mediterranean chateau to enchant customers. Guests of Belle Fiore tasting rooms savor extraordinary wines and classic food pairings, enjoy live music nightly and winemaker paired dinners and stroll amid scenic gardens and vineyards.

Belle Fiore Winery surveys sweeping mountain vistas from Ashland to Pilot Rock to Pompadour Butte.

Our 31 acre vineyards cultivate extraordinary wine grapes producing classic vintages which encapsulate our French, Italian, and Spanish heritage.  From Burgundy, our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes produce wonderful, classic Oregon wines.  From France’s Bordeaux region, we grow Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot.  From the Rhone, we grow Syrah.

Celebrating unique, flavorful varieties, we also grow distinctive, exotic Mediterranean grapes including an Italian varietal Caprettone, “beard of the goat.” Other remarkable Italian and Spanish estate grown grapes include Montepulciano, Barbera, Teroldego, and VerdejoMuscat Canelli grapes produce sweet, delicious dessert wines.

Belle Fiore wines are fermented and aged in our beautiful, technologically advanced tank room admired by winery guests as they stroll on the Pavilion viewing gallery.  Belle Fiore’s barrel rooms rest submerged beneath the Wine Pavilion, and maintain a steady 56 degrees Fahrenheit (8°C) year round for optimal, gentle aging.
