There are the stories of Oregon you know. That picture in your head when you hear the word “Pacific” and think not sun but rain, Doug firs dripping in dappled light—steamy cafes, fly fishing for salmon, and piney IPAs.
Then there are the stories of Oregon you don’t know yet. The ones you discover in the vast expanse of Oregon wine country. A place of astonishing range, from coastal mountains to valley slopes, and river gorges to high deserts.
A place that once you’re here, there’s no going back without part of its wonder alive inside you.
This Oregon Wine Month, join Master of Wine Bree Stock for a virtual exploration of Oregon’s winegrowing regions and their True Character.
