Oregon hit the trail in April, bringing 50 wineries to Los Angeles for a generous pour of Oregon’s fine wine and pioneering spirit. In addition to 1,500 bottles of wine, we also brought two masters: Master of Wine Bree Boskov and Master Sommelier Chris Tanghe. Together they presented a 90-minute overview of why Oregon wine tastes Oregonian by illuminating regionality, geology, climate, trends and more.

Pour a glass, press play and dig into Oregon’s terrior from home.
