Who We Are
Scott Malone is a true ambassador to the Urban Cork. When he is not working in the tasting room, Scott is selling wine for our private label program, selling and assembling gift baskets and promoting The Urban Cork. Scott graduated from Humboldt state University and loves the local wines and outdoor activities that the Rogue Valley has to offer. He comes from California and says river guiding brought him to the Rogue Valley. Some of Scott’s other passions include motorcycles, rafting, long walks on the beach and cooking. As a local business owner and wine enthusiast, he is excited to help customers find a good wine from the Urban Cork’s large selection.

Linda Donovan has been passionate about winemaking since she started her degree in fermentation science (UC Davis) in 1990. While working her "way up" in Napa and on the true Sonoma coast, Linda explored many wine growing regions around the world. After a stint in Western Australia (Margaret River), Linda chose to pioneer the Rogue Valley in 2001. "At that time, there were 5 wineries here, and no one was growing the varietals I wanted to make" said Linda. So she planted them (Mourvedre, Grenache, Cinsault and Carignane).
