Region Description

Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States, located between Washington to the north and California to the south. It is known for its diverse landscape of forests, mountains, rivers, and high desert, and for its vibrant wine industry. Oregon's wine industry dates back to the mid-1800s, when the first vineyards were planted in the Willamette Valley. The region was largely forgotten until the 1960s, when a group of pioneering winemakers began to experiment with Pinot Noir and other cool-climate varieties. Since then, Oregon has become one of the most important wine regions in the United States, with over 500 wineries and more than 1,000 vineyards.
