There will be a shuttle service for guests on Sunday for Grand Tasting—the largest event of the week. This shuttle service is provided by Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce and will run every 15 minutes, from 1:30 to 6 p.m.

Trolley pick-up and drop-off services will be established between the main entrance to the OWE site along Stage Pass Road and the trolley stop along West C Street in downtown Jacksonville next to the Visitor Center and adjacent public parking lot.

You must be a registered guest to use this service and attend Grand Tasting.  

Yes, our venue has a large parking area. Follow signs to the “OWE Main Entrance” along South Stage Road, which is the driveway closest to the DANCIN Vineyards entrance. We do recommend carpooling or ridesharing services when possible.

Resort attire is recommended—think dresses, dress shorts and button ups. Miracle Auction is a little more upscale, as it’s a seated dinner, program and live auction, followed by dancing! The tent sits on a field, so for anyone who chooses to wear heels, we recommend a wedge or thick-heel shoe (no spikes) for your safety and comfort.

The Silent Auction opens at noon on August 16 and closes at 8 p.m. on Sunday, August 20. 

Founders’ Barrel Auction opens on August 17 at noon. Every wine is now associated with a specific lot and closing time. Lot 1, Lot 2 and Library Lane will close on August 18 at 8:30 p.m. Lot 3 and Lot 4 will close on August 18 at 8:45 p.m.

Since its inception, Oregon Wine Experience has raised more than $10.4 million, benefiting the Asante Children’s Miracle Network program and other health care programs at Asante. 100% of the event’s proceeds benefit charity, every year. Asante Foundation is a 501(C)(3) charity. Tax ID #93-6087366.

Over the next several years, your support through Oregon Wine Experience will help generate $15 million to create the new Olsrud Family Women’s and Children’s Hospital at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center. This modern, family-centered care environment will improve medical outcomes and personal experiences. Donors and sponsors of the Oregon Wine Experience will make a once-in-a-generation impact on the lives of babies, children and families from across the region.

After nearly a decade of events and fundraising to support children’s health care programs, Asante Foundation will no longer host Oregon Wine Experience® (OWE). After close evaluation of the overall investment and return, OWE is no longer financially viable as a fundraising event in a post-pandemic economy.

We extend our immense gratitude to every sponsor, vendor, winery, volunteer and guest who helped make OWE a reality.
