Presented by Gregory Jones, Director of Wine Education, Linfield
From Peter Britt in Southern Oregon in the 1850s, to the early
Willamette Valley pioneers of the 1960s, to today’s vibrant wine industry, the
state’s climate, landscape and soils have provided a diverse environment for
growing a wide range of wine grapes that producers have crafted into
world-class wines. This talk will provide insights into the storied history, exceptional
growth and future potential of the Oregon wine industry.
About the Speaker:
Gregory Jones is Director of Wine Education at Linfield College
and known globally as one of the preeminent wine climatologists. He regularly
conducts research for the wine industry in Oregon and has given hundreds of
presentations on climate and wine regionally, nationally and internationally.
He was a contributing author to the 2008 Nobel Peace Prize-winning Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change Report, as well as the author of many book
chapters, reports and articles on wine economics, climate change and
climatological assessments of viticulture potential.
These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
