About The Oregon Wine Industry: History, Growth and Potential

Presented by Gregory Jones, Director of Wine Education, Linfield College

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.
