PORTLAND, Ore. — According to the Oregon Wine Board, the wine crop across the state is making good progress.
Crops had a late blooming time across the entire state, with some areas a week or two behind schedule. Wine growers in the Willamette Valley do not expect the crop to catch up to 2010’s pace. However, given warmer conditions in the fall, growers expect the crop to finish by October 15.
Southern Oregon wineries have had better conditions for growing by comparison. While conditions have not been exactly ideal, it is better than the killing frost that was seen in 2010. Southern Oregon wine crops are expected to finish strong.
