The Beaver State! Land of the rose and sunshine, land of the summer's breeze! The 33rd state to join the Union, but the 2nd or 3rd state in the hearts of American wine drinkers, depending on where you rank Washington! Flow on like the mighty Willamette, o wines of Oregon!
In 1970, Oregon had five wineries cultivating about 35 acres. Today over 450 wineries are based there, covering over 17,000 acres, and the state is regarded as one of the premier Pinot Noir growing regions in the world. We think Oregon is starting to get the hang of it.
