Vintage Oregon kicks off Oregon Wine Month
PORTLAND – The wine industry will kick off Oregon Wine Month with its second annual Vintage Oregon, a tasting event April 28 in Portland.
Oregon Wine Month is May.
“Last year’s event helped us launch Oregon Wine Month in an exciting way for consumers and our industry,” said Michael Donovan, Oregon Wine Board chairman and managing director of RoxyAnn Winery in Medford. “The format of the event will encourage exploration of our diverse industry, not only at the tasting, but throughout Oregon Wine Month and during the year ahead.”
Vintage Oregon will provide a large selection of wine and expose wine lovers to the state’s diverse wine regions and the grape varieties they produce.
Oregon restaurants will be featured at Vintage Oregon and will use local ingredients and produce.
Throughout May, restaurants and retailers throughout the state will promote Oregon wine. The month-long celebration will lead up to the annual Memorial Day weekend open-house events that take place throughout the state, particularly in the Willamette Valley.
