Established wineries in Lane County are drawing in more new wine startups.

Oregon Wine Lab and Capitello­ Wines, on the eastern edge of Eugene’s Whiteaker neighborhood, will join urban wineries Eugene Wine Cellars and Territorial Vineyards & Wine Co., which opened in the Whiteaker more than a decade ago. That was back when some real estate agents referred to the area as “felony flats,” Territorial owner Alan Mitchell said.
