Visit LongSword

LongSword is a breathtaking Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyard located in the heart of the Applegate Valley.

A pleasant 15 minute drive from downtown Jacksonville, LongSword features table-ready wines that are distinctly approachable, charming, and complex.

Here's a sampling of the lovely things LongSword has to offer!

Tasting room and patio

Enjoy chatting with locals as you sample our wines in the tasting room or grab a bottle and spend a relaxing afternoon on the patio.

Either way you'll be enchanted by breath-taking views of the vineyard and the surrounding mountains. Tastings are only $5 and lingering is encouraged.

Vineyard

Nestled between the Siskiyou, Cascade, and Coastal mountain ranges, LongSword encompasses 10 acres of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines and 12 acres of natural beauty.

Thanks to the vineyard's unique microclimate, LongSword enjoys sunshine 360 days a year. Guests are often greeted by a delightful collection of farm animals that call LongSword home: 40 Plymouth Barred Rock chickens, 4 Pilgrim geese (led by the recalcitrant Louie), Will Feral (the elusive barn cat), and three Baby Doll Southdown sheep aptly named Einstein, Newton, and Hawking.

Parasailing

On any given afternoon, odds are you’ll see the colorful sails of hang gliders and parasailers growing large in the sky as they descend from Woodrat Mountain.

Work your way through a bottle, and you'll probably even witness a daredevil landing or two in the field in front of the tasting room!


Interested in taking the plunge? Visit rvhpa.org to schedule a tandem flight and then land at LongSword for a glass of wine to celebrate your bravery.

Our wines

This summer we are offering three varietals that can only be purchased at LongSword Vineyard.

Accolade

An enchanting, lightly sparkling Chardonnay known as "the wedding wine," Accolade delights and charms the palette for any occasion by combining playful notes of citrus with just a hint of sweetness for a truly effervescent experience!

Invitation

Elegant and lively, Invitation is a unique non-oaked Chardonnay that pairs bright citrus and crisp mineral flavors with lovely notes of pear and melon to create a delightfully well-balanced, food-friendly wine.

Phrase

Beautifully rich and dark, Phrase features fragrant notes of blackberries and violets that unfurl into a spicy cardamom and pepper finish to create an unforgettable medium-bodied Pinot Noir.
