Winemakers - Paula and Tony Guzzo
Guzzo Family Vineyard is a boutique winery and tasting room established in 2012 in Murphy Oregon. Tony and Paula Guzzo are total hands-on winemakers during the entire wine making process, production and bottling of limited quantities of award winning Red wines.
This small Italian style vineyard is located on the edge of the Applegate Valley AVA producing the first small batches of GFV reserve dessert wines in 2017. The majority of our grapes are purchased from select Rogue and Applegate Valley growers for our main varietals.
Our unique winemaking technique to barrel age in new 30 gallon and 1 year old American Oak and ages wine in less time than in the traditional larger barrels, then the wine is moved into stainless steel tanks and then bottle aged, resulting in one of the best hand crafted red wines and "crazy good" wine tasting experiences possible.
This technique may not follow the traditions of winemaking and GFV may be seen as a renegade in the spirit of the original "garagiste" in the winemaking world.
These Missouri Oak barrels are purchased from The Oak Cooperage and creates beautiful fruit flavors with hints of vanilla "Find out more" about these barrels on the link below.
The GFV Tasting Room opened late 2018 and offers a very intimate and relaxing environment with indoor seating for up to 25 guests. Paula’s unique hand-painted wine barrels and artwork of Southern Oregon land and seascapes.
The Tasting Room is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday's from 11 AM - 4 PM.
Appointments are available if you wish to visit our tasting room on other days by calling 541-862-8617.
We produce limited quantities of premium hand-crafted red wines. The tasting room is also used as our production area where we ferment, hand press our grapes, barrel and bottle on site. During your visit you will see and hear about our unique process and barrel tasting when available.
Note, because of the dual use, our tasting room may be closed during harvest and fermentation times . Please check in advance during October and November months.
Painted wine barrels by Paula Guzzo are featured as seating in the GFV Tasting Room and other displays of canvas paintings that have been or will be painted on barrels as they are retired from our production. The barrels and art are for guests to view and enjoy and painted barrels and art are available for purchase.
Before we go Roaring into the 2020's, we must look back at 2019. We can hardly believe how amazing it has been. We were honored to have received 5 Medals at the 2019 Oregon Wine Experience, receiving Double Gold for our 2016 Tempranillo and 2016 Syrah, Gold for 2017 Jett Fuel and Silvers for our 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon and Maggie Merlot. Additionally, the Oregon Wine Press selected our 2016 LoCo Red as a Cellar Select for February, again in March for our 2016 Syrah, and then ended the year in December receiving a Cellar Select for our 2018 Sweet Dahlia.
Paula was feeling so honored to have The Southern Oregon Wine Scene Fall/Winter 2019 Issue include an article (SEE LINK BELOW FOR FULL ARTICLE) on her wine barrel art! Photography by Steven Addington.
The tasting room celebrated it's 1st year anniversary in July 2019 with a growing Wine Club Membership and 2 Member Appreciation Events held at the beautiful Fields Venue with David Modica providing his captivating music; and then several sit down release and pairing parties in our tasting room in November.
We are so blessed and grateful for the outpouring of support from all of our family and friends of GFV. It is YOU that made this year so much fun. We have enjoyed sharing our story with so many of you and look forward to this new year.
Thank you so much for making us one of your wine tasting destinations.
Here's to you! Now let's go Roaring into the 2020's!!
