Hours: Year Round
Belle Fiore Winery overlooks sweeping vistas, from Ashland to the Siskiyou Mountains and from Pilot Rock to Pompadour Butte.Â Prospectors arrived in Ashland just as gold was discovered in Jacksonville in the 1850's.Â After Lewis and Clark's explorations in the early 1800s, hunters, trappers and early farmers journeyed to Oregon following the Oregon and Applegate Trails.Â Southern Oregon mountains and valleys hummed with farming, logging, hunting and trapping.Â Indian tribes roved from Ashland to the Soda Mountain Wilderness, Lake of the Woods and Klamath Falls.
For a hundred years, Belle Fiore's slopes thrived as a cattle and hay farm first settled in approximately 1880.Â Belle Fiore's flourishing hay fields were homesteaded by the Murphy family.Â As railroads pushed expansion to the west, the post-Civil War Homestead Act granted one hundred sixty acres to families willing to move to western lands and eke out a farming existence.Â So the Murphys settled on Belle Fiore estate, tending the land, raising cattle and cutting hay for more than fifty years.
