Medford, Oregon – June 12, 2017. Awen Winecraft established in 2016, is the creation of Sean Hopkins and Tom Homewood, two friends with a deep passion for wine and their community of Southern Oregon.  Their wines, from various appellations of the region, strive to reflect the diversity and splendor that encompass the pastoral valleys and mountains of Southern Oregon.  They are dedicated to producing handcrafted boutique wines which allow each vineyard to express its own virtues. While they are new on the scene, they are already making their mark as their 2016 Inspiration Blend was awarded a gold medal at the 2017 Oregon Wine Experience.  Also available is their Grenache Blanc, a delightful varietal that pairs well with the proverbial flavors of winter. You can find Awen’s inspired libations at local wine shops and restaurants or online at  Follow them on facebook and instagram to keep up with their ever evolving story as well as scheduled tastings and community events. Drink Local, Drink Deeply, Drink AWEN.
