Velocity Cellars

Velocity Cellars

Gus Janeway is the winemaker/owner for Velocity Cellars in Southern Oregon. He was the winemaker for Roxyann Winery for many years. He left there to focus on Velocity Wine Cellars, with the same meticulous and uncompromising care he brings to all of his wines. In addition to many hours in the cellar, Gus is known for bringing his vineyard management experience to bear on his close relationships with grape growers. Seven years ago, Gus risked the unknown territory of the Rogue Valley in pursuit of an elegant, pure style of winemaking elevated by the character of the region itself. Vineyard management posts were followed by winemaking positions, beginning at Quail Run and Griffin Creek Vineyards. He then served as founding winemaker for Paschal, where he built a state of the art winery.

Gus directed winemaking at Paschal to critical acclaim from 1998 until going out on his own in 2002. Gus is currently serving his third year as President of the Rogue Chapter of the Oregon Winegrowers Association. In 2004 he was instrumental in establishing a Rogue Valley Convivium for Slow Food, an international educational organization dedicated to the preservation of regional and seasonal culinary traditions.
