Oroville - Purple Line Urban Winery

760 Safford Street

About Us:

Purple Line Urban Winery is a small family owned winery born out of our long romance and passion for good wine. My name is Kate (Owner/Tasting room manager) my husband’s name is George (Owner/Winemaker/cellar rat) and this is our story.

Our story begins a few years ago when George decided that we needed to build a wine cellar in the basement of our 1865 Victorian home in the historic district of Oroville. George doesn’t do anything half way and once he gets an idea in his head he is as tenacious as a bull.  So the wine cellar was built. Now we need to fill it up. Ok we can do that…we belong to wine clubs from many regions and surely that will fill the cellar. With our thoughts into filling the cellar we ventured out into the country side on one beautiful Sunday afternoon to do a little wine tasting in our region.  We met the people making the wine, we talked to the people tasting the wine, we smelled the wine fermenting in the oak barrels.

Friendly folks here. Showed us the fermenting and the century old pressing of the wine without us even asking. Quite the unique experience and something I've never seen at dozens of wineries before. Lot of people helping out the process on this day so it was fun. Tasting room is great and facilities beautiful.
