For lovers of Pinot Noir, there may not be a single region outside of Burgundy that captures the imagination better than Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Oregon is known for subtle, yet presentable New World fruit, while also paying homage to the soils that give birth to these vines--meaning, terroir. But like there is more to Portland than roasted coffee beans and ironic mustaches, so too is the same about Oregon’s wine industry. Whites like Pinot Gris and Riesling have found a home here, while Chardonnay continues to experience a bit of a revival.
