Oregon Wine's Civil Civil War

November 08, 2019

Oregon is in the strange position of having two representative wine bodies: the long-standing official one, and a group of upstarts who complain (politely) that the official board doesn't represent them. Mainly it is a clash between the Pinot Noir producers of Willamette Valley and growers and wineries in other parts of the state. As with most problems in the Pacific Northwest, it's really all California's fault.
