Wine Export Information

Marketing Oregon to the World

The expansion of Oregon's export business is important to raising awareness of the state's growing reputation as a world class wine producing region and increasing the market for our wine. The Oregon Wine Board develops and supports programs that assist our wineries in gaining market access to key regions around the world. Broad market trade shows, industry specific tastings and educational programs provide the foundation of our efforts. As wineries gain representation and Oregon wines are imported, the Wine Board establishes partnerships with in-market representatives to assist communication and growth while providing access to Oregon for wine, food and lifestyle media.

Export program focus is currently on markets in Europe, Japan and Canada with increasing efforts into Hong Kong and China. 

The funding structure for the export program is unique in that the Oregon Wine Board, as part of the Northwest Wine Coalition, receives funding from the US Department of Agriculture's Market Access Program that is specifically earmarked for the promotion of Oregon wines outside the US. Additional funding comes from targeted grant opportunities and winery fees for participation in tradeshows, tastings and other programs during the year.

The Export Committee meets on an as-needed basis and is open to any winery reps interested in participating while an Export Advisory Committee has been formed to guide the specific goals and objectives of the OWB marketing team.
