West Coast Wednesday - Oregon Wine

When we hear the words 'Wine Country' we usually think of California's Napa Valley, but Oregon's Willamette Valley is quickly becoming as well known as our southern sister wineries.

Oregon is a world-class wine state with 15 approved winegrowing regions and more than 300 wineries producing 72 varieties. We are blessed with some of the most diverse and beautiful wine-growing landscapes in the world. Beauty abounds in Oregon wine growing, from the soaring lands of the Columbia River Gorge to the Willamette Valley’s green, rolling hills to the high mountain valleys of Southern Oregon. There are some incredible sights to behold—and some incredible wines to taste.

In Oregon, our winemakers are farmers, families and environmental stewards who believe in high-quality artisan wine. In fact, most Oregon wineries are relatively small, producing on average just 5,000 cases a year. Oregon country roads are dotted with beautiful wine tasting rooms where you sit on large decks to sample a fragrant pinot noir or pinot gris while soaking in breathtaking views of the vineyard and lush landscapes beyond.
