Learn about Oregon

Oregon is a state like no other wine state, which is part of the reason I decided to make Oregon my next U.S. home.  Many say it is like the Napa of 30 years ago, where winemakers are the owners and wear jeans and a t-shirt vs. boatshoes and khakis. There is a sense of community to the Oregon wine industry that you don’t hear about in other wine regions in the world, making it a comfortable, cooperative region to work in.

I welcome you to explore the amazing regions of this great state, where the weather is mild and wet but the wines is stunning.

Oregon is composed a five  major regions with 16 major AVAs (American Viticultural Areas) within these regions:

  • Willamette Valley
  • Southern Oregon
  • Columbia Gorge
  • Walla Walla Valley
  • Snake River Valley

Each region has something different to offer from light bodied Pinot Noirs and Pinot Gris of Willamette Valley to the full bodied Tempranillos and Syrahs of Southern Oregon.
