MEDFORD, Ore. — Local vintner RoxyAnn Winery has partnered with the organization Redemption Ridge to help support victims of child sex trafficking through the sale of a new wine brand.

"Redemption Ridge Red" is a blend of Pinot Noir and Tempranillo, and will be available at the winery's tasting room or for purchase on its website. Proceeds help to support the Redemption Ridge Grace House, Oregon's first long-term residential care facility for girls who survived sex trafficking and abuse between the ages of 11 and 17.

“We learned of the healing work being provided by Redemption Ridge to rescue and reclaim the lives of female victims of sex trafficking, and felt compelled to put our heads together to see what we can to do to make a difference,” said Chad and Oakley Day of RoxyAnn Winery. “People don’t necessarily know of these issues, the lack of resources, and the critical challenges we are struggling with in our communities and nationally.”

According to Redemption Ridge, law enforcement in Oregon identifies as many as three to five victims of human trafficking every week. On average, 80 percent of those victims are female. About half are children. Portland in particular has been identified as having the second largest number of children found in forced prostitution of any city in the U.S., the organization says.

“We are grateful for this unique partnership with RoxyAnn Winery as it supports our Grace House long-term residential care services, and helps raise public awareness to a crisis which needs so much immediate attention,” said Kirsten Arreguin, Executive Director of Redemption Ridge.

Since the Grace House opened in 2017, Redemption Ridge says that 25 young women have been provided housing and care by a team of trauma-capable specialists and mentors who are with the girls every day, at all hours.
