Reustle (pronounced "rus'el") Prayer Rock Vineyards is a family owned winery located in the Umpqua Valley of Southern Oregon. Stephen and Gloria Reustle moved their family to Oregon and established vineyards in 2001. Estate grown wines were first offered in 2004.

This winery produces about 8,000 cases per year of a dozen different varietals, reserves and blends.

Three Pinot Noirs are offered: "Pichon Bloc" in Prayer Rock Vineyard, Winemaker's Reserve, and "Best Barrel."
The winery's tasting room program includes a sit-down wine and appetizer pairing in an underground wine cave. The tasting room, located at 960 Cal Henry Road in Roseburg, is open Tuesday-Saturday. The wines are sold on the website. A guest house is availabe.
