1. Who is RVV and when did it form?
Rogue Valley Vintners is a non-profit organization made up of passionate viticulture and enology industry professionals who believe in the Rogue Valley as a premier wine producing region and destination. In March of 2018, email invitations were sent to all the wineries and vineyards in the Rogue Valley to attend a public meeting to discuss forming a Rogue Valley marketing group for the wine industry. In May 2018, a Board of Directors was elected to begin planning.
2. What is Rogue Valley Vintner’s mission?
The Mission of the RVV is to promote Rogue Valley wines, vineyards, and wineries while enhancing the customer experience. RVV is not a research or advocacy organization, nor is a sales organization.
3. What benefit will my business gain by supporting RVV?
RVV will present a unified brand to consumers and potential industry partners both inside and outside of Oregon. We hope to raise awareness for the wine, hospitality, and recreation industries in Southern Oregon. We hope to provide leadership and organization for individual businesses to join together and raise awareness for our region around quality wines.
4. How is RVV different than the other wine related trade associations?
