All you oenophiles out there, gather round. The Urban Cork is Medford’s hip wine tasting bar, featuring more than 50 custom wines handcrafted by owner and longtime winemaker, Linda Donovan. Visitors have unparalleled access to almost 90 outstanding varietals that represent the wines of her more than 25 winery clients, and her own label, L. Donovan Wines. Tasters will experience viogniers and tempranillos to more unusual selections like touriga nacional and müller-thurgau. Wines are available for purchase by bottle or case in the tasting room, as well as through The Urban Cork Wine Club.
All wines are produced on site at Pallet Wine Company, her adjacent 21,000 sq. ft. urban winery custom crush facility, and are poured in the tasting room. Tailored to the needs of her small-scale vineyard and winery clients, these are truly local…grown and harvested from Ashland to Roseburg, and they express the terroir of their respective viticulture regions.
In addition to grapes grown locally in Medford, Ashland, Jacksonville, the Applegate Valley and the surrounding areas, they also process and bottle wines from producers in the Illinois Valley, Central Oregon, the Willamette Valley, and Umpqua Valley.
Tasting and glass offerings are rotated frequently to ensure a unique experience. For wine lovers, The Urban Cork is a convenient starting or finishing point on your adventure of the local and regional wine scene, a gathering place for locals and visitors to unite over a great glass of wine, a venue for local music and events, and a center for wine education.
We also offer charcuterie (meat and cheese boards), perfect for sharing.
