In 1933, Honeywood Winery was founded by Ron Honeyman and John Wood. It was originally called Columbia Distilleries, and produced fruit brandies, cordials and liqueurs. Eventually, they settled on making premium wines and decided a name change was in order for the winery. Contrary to the obvious Messrs. Honeyman and Wood did not use a contraction of their names to make Honeywood, and in fact, objected to the name those grounds. An advertising consultant, who knew a good thing when he saw it, provided the rationale with a line from Oliver Goldsmith's play, "The Good Natured Man," wherein the products of fermentation were referred to as, "smooth as Honey...aged in Wood...the drink of the good natured man." By coincidence or design, Honeywood became synonymous with the elite in wines.

Obviously, a winery must be close to its source of ingredients, and so it is with Honeywood. Located in Salem, in the heart of Oregon's great and fertile Willamette Valley, the winer is minutes away from some of the world's finest vineyards, cane berry fields and fruit orchards.

  • I've been to Honeywood many times while visiting Salem. I always like to make a stop. They have very generous tastings. And, I always pick up a few bottles of wine. They also have a really nice gift shop. I've always managed to find a gift or two for a friend who likes wine themed items. Their wine also makes a really great gift.
  • Great wines and nice people in the tasting room.
  • We recently vacationed in Oregon. My husband and I taste tested literally every winery we came across the week we were there. By far, this wine was our favorite. We recently just learned that our local liquor store in Joplin, MO just started stocking this brand and we are so excited. We took a bottle to a Valentine's day dinner with a few other couples and they all LOVED it as well. They asked where they could get it and we gladly instructed them where :)
  • Nice store and selection of wines available. Customer service friendly
  • I love this urban winery! I have sent their fruit wines to my family on the east coast with requests for more. They have great decor, cute wine accessories, local food products, and a huge selection of many delicious fruit wines.
