Not only is this the biggest wine industry event of the year, it’s a gathering place for Oregon’s wine community to come together to learn, share and become acquainted: Oregon Wine Symposium
Harvest has officially begun in Oregon, and the wine industry folks in our gorgeous state are highly optimistic.
I'm feeling like a very happy wine gal these days; blue skies, warm air, and a summer full of stellar wine events and media trips throughout Oregon and Washington - life couldn't be better. There is much to look forward to, much to be excited about, and a whole lot to write about.
With a six day forecast like the one we currently have in the South Willamette Valley, there's no better place to be than at the wineries, soaking in the warmth and rays. If you need me, I'll be at one of the following wineries, glass in hand.
I can't remember a summer ever flying by as fast as this one. I also can't believe this is issue number 75 of Wine Down Eugene! Time to pop the cork on a bottle of Oregon Pinot Noir and celebrate!
By the time this is being read by fans of the Wine Down, I will be on the road with the Oregon Wine Board traveling from Ashland in the south to Newberg in the north. Five California based wine writers and I have been invited to visit Oregon's beautiful, bountiful and diverse wine country from one end of the state to the other.
