Our Story

Awen Winecraft was officially started in 2016 by winemakers Sean Hopkins and Tom Homewood. We had been producing small lots of hand crafted hobby wine for over a decade. After many years of honing our winemaking skills producing 4 – 20 Barrels a year we decided it was time to try and make a business of our passion. Sean moved to Southern Oregon in the summer of 2011 to begin experimenting with the Rogue and Applegate AVA grapes. Tom followed in the summer of 2016. We are committed to the region and local community. We believe we are sitting in the middle of the next great wine region and are excited to become part of the story.

Working with Herb Quady and Brian Gruber at Barrel 42 we are bridging the gap from Hobbyist to professional. We hope you will enjoy the fruits of our labor. Drink deeply and relax.
