Oregon Pinot Noir on global stage
The rise of Oregon Pinot Noir in the past half-century has been impressive. Oregon – and in particular the Willamette Valley – has earned a global reputation for its Pinot Noir. The wines are talked about and draw comparisons to Pinot Noirs from throughout the world.
As recently as 1992, Oregon winemakers crushed just 4,000 tons of Pinot Noir. By 2014, that number reached past 45,000 tons. Today, Pinot Noir makes up no less than 60 percent of all the vines in Oregon. Unlike Washington – where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Riesling rule the landscape – there is no question about what Oregon is primarily about.
Here are a dozen delicious Oregon Pinot Noirs we’ve tasted recently. Ask for them at your favorite wine merchant or contact the wineries directly.
