Wines of Oregon dedicates this website to the Oregon wine growers and wineries that have made this an exciting time in Oregon history. We are in place to share with the world our delight with Oregon’s flag ship grape, Pinot Noir. We feel that Oregon has come of age and is the premier Pinot Noir growing region in the world. No other area in the world, except Burgundy, France in Europe, has a climate as ideal as the Willamette Valley for producing this complex, elegant red wine.
Do not let our enthusiasm for Oregon Pinot overshadow the fact that Oregon produces a wide spectrum of other delicious red wines which include Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel and many others.
Oregon’s major white varietal is Pinot Gris. Oregon has many other white varietals that you will enjoy. These include, Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Muller Thurgau, Viognier and others. We also need to include the excellent dessert and sparkling wines.
