Ode to Oregon

I’ve always been a big fan of Oregon wines. Maybe it’s because drinking a glass reminds me how fortunate I am to have had the opportunity to visit the state and see firsthand its strikingly green and lush landscape. Or it could be because Oregon’s wines tend to be made with that delicate and elusive balance of New World ripe fruit and Old World restraint. More likely, it’s a combination of both. Either way, I love seeking out new favorites from the Pacific Northwest.
