JPR's 33rd Annual Wine Tasting Now on Feb 13

Dec 31, 2013

Due to the severe winter storm that crashed into the Rogue Valley in early December we've rescheduled JPR’s 33rd Annual Wine Tasting & Silent Auction to Thursday, February 13, 2014 from 6pm to 9pm at the Historic Ashland Springs Hotel in downtown Ashland. This annual Rogue Valley tradition features a diverse selection of the region's finest wines, delicious food, live music and good friends of public radio. We here at JPR are proud to host the 33rd Annual Wine Tasting and are so grateful that the community supports this festive event year after year. Wineries continue to donate the incredible wine that is produced right here in our region, and generous restaurants and caterers remain steadfast in their commitment to share their culinary creations with our guests.  The evening comes together with the help of our wonderful volunteers, and of course the staff of the Ashland Springs Hotel.  This year Ashland Springs Hotel is once again offering discounted rates for the evening of the wine tasting. Mention the JPR Wine Tasting when you call to book your room. Book early as the hotel often sells out the JPR block of rooms quickly.

The Not-So-Silent Auction continues to be a Wine Tasting tradition and serves a large role in raising money to support quality public radio in our region. So come prepared to outbid your neighbors and support JPR. We are grateful to the many businesses and individuals who contribute their products, services and creations to our famous Not-So Silent Auction, hosted by Jefferson Exchange host and MC Extraordinaire, Geoffrey Riley. 

This year live music is provided by Gayle Wilson & The Djangoholics in the Grand Ballroom, and The Ed Dunsavage Trio performing downstairs in the Crystal Room. Each has a unique sound, so make sure you take a minute to stop and listen to all that they have to offer.

Finally, it takes a village to throw a wine tasting, and none of this would be possible without the support of our sponsors: Ashland Food Co-op and American Family Insurance agents Barbara DeForest of Medford and Zach Bartlett of Ashland.  

Tickets are available online at the JPR Store and by calling 1-800-782-6191. You can also visit Ashland Food Co-op and pick up tickets in person!
