A bit of history on the label
Rock Point Wines is named after Del Rio Vineyards’ historic location just north of Gold Hill. The distinguishing Rock Point formation in the Rogue River became the name of a small community founded by J.B. White in the early 1850s. Rock Point has a colorful history consisting of the Rogue Indian Wars, gold mining, floods, the railroad, and orchards. Today, the only remaining reminder of the community’s history is the still standing Stage Coach Stop, the location of the Rock Point Hotel, a major stop on the California-Oregon Stage line.

Rock Point Wines was established in 2008 and has been steadily growing in distribution around the country. It is currently available to Oregon customers through our online store, select Costco locations and on tap at a few local restaurants.
