Oregon Wine Month

May is Oregon Wine Month and there has never been a better time to discover your perfect Oregon wine. Oregon Wine Month was established by decree of Gov. John Kitzhaber in 2012 to celebrate and highlight Oregon's growing community. Throughout May wineries from all over the state will be pouring special selections, offering unique food and wine pairings and holding fun activities. Be sure to celebrate Oregon Wine Month by visiting your favorite winery, and purchasing Oregon wine at participating restaurants and retail locations.
