“Terrific setting, food & wine”
Review of Red Lily Vineyards

Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Red Lily Vineyards is committed to a single goal -- producing the finest Spanish-inspired wines possible. We fell in love with Spanish wines years ago, particularly Tempranillo and its brooding, earthy character, and chose to make these wines our focus. Red Lily Vineyards is named principally for Bolander's Lily, a rare species of red lily found in the neighboring Siskiyou Mountains. However, it also has another, more special meaning. Our daughter is named Lily and among her many, incredible attributes, she shares our love of wine.

Reviewed 19 September 2013

Lovely setting, pleasant hostess.Many good wines but Verdejo was our choice. We ordered a cheese and meat plate to share and it was more than ample for four of us.... only $16. Can't think of a better way to wile away a few hours in an afternoon.

“Great place, fair wine, terrible staff”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 via mobile

This winery has a beautiful setting along the Applegate River. The wines are OK, not ones I would buy but drinkable at the very pleasant tasting room. Our experience was absolutely ruined by the manager on duty, who is rude, arrogant and seems to think she is running a soup kitchen for derelicts. Perhaps she should take remedial lessons in manners. Unfortunately, she is so officious that you can't avoid her no matter how hard you try, so go to one of the many other fine wineries in the Applegate Valley. I recommend Schmidt and Valley View. The wine stewards at the latter are the best I've found.

At Red Lily, we strive to provide all of our guests with a positive experience. As part of that effort, we welcome customers and their dogs, though we do require that dogs be kept on a leash at all times. Even the best trained dog may sometimes get excited and jump on someone, or cause other problems. The customer in question was visiting Red Lily and brought along their dog. However, they did not have their dog on a leash. Our manager observed this and politely informed the customer of our leash policy, as well as the reasons why. Unfortunately, the customer became agitated and left the premises, stating that he would write a negative online review. We sincerely apologize if the customer felt the request for his dog to be leashed was unfair, or was communicated in a rude or arrogant manner. Anyone who knows the manager would know she is neither of those things.

“Relaxing, inviting and scenic”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

And the wine is good, too! Short ride out of Jacksonville to the beautiful Applegate. Sometimes you get to see hang gliders land, too.

“A relaxing place to enjoy a picnic and wine”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Red Lily has a nice beachfront along the Applegate River, which is a very relaxing place to spend a couple hours on a warm summer day. We brought friends from San Francisco, who have a 3 year old daughter, and she enjoyed digging in the sand, while we picnicked and drank wine at one of their shaded tables. All of our out-of-town guests enjoy visiting Red Lily and say they'd like to come back next time they visit us in Jacksonville. It's a beautiful location and they have nice food and wine.
