Stephen M Reustle, Owner/Winemaker explained, “Just being invited to compete in this invitational wine competition is an honor. To qualify you must have received a GOLD medal in a major wine competition. Twelve wines invited from one winery to compete is an accomplishment in and of itself. But when all twelve receive a Gold, Double Gold, or Double Platinum Medal… that is special.”

Reustle commented on how awards like these coupled with a recent International spotlight for their 6 Nations Wine Challenge First Place Trophy in the Syrah category, is putting the Umpqua Valley on the “World-Wine” map.

According to Reustle, “The Umpqua Valley is one of the few places on earth where, within a short drive, you can taste award-winning varietals traditionally grown in Europe’s Rhone, Burgundy, and Rioja regions.”

2015 Six Nations Wine Challenge Top Syrah producer, Reustle – Prayer Rock Vineyards™, 2015 Terroir Award Recipient & 2010 Small Winery of the Year named by Riverside International Wine Competition, is 100% estate grown and produced from 40 acres of steep, hillside vineyards in Southern Oregon’s Umpqua Valley. Family owned and operated since 2001, Reustle – Prayer Rock Vineyards annually produces approximately 8,000 cases of more than a dozen different varietals, reserves, and blends.
