Our Story

Wine Hopper Tours is owned and operated by Brad and Babs Niva. The Nivas operate a number of successful tour companies in Southern Oregon that feature authentic experiences focused on people and the region.  For more than ten years, the Nivas owned and managed Rogue Wilderness Adventures, a rafting, hiking and fishing company on the Rogue River.

Brad serves as the Past President of the Southern Oregon Visitors Association and is passionate about the people, the product and our unique place. The Nivas are very proud that their companies are 100% Oregon. Owned, managed and operated by Oregonians.
