Oregon Wine Country
I have been reading books (the few I can find) about Oregon Wine Country, and the couple that I have read say that wineries are only open Memorial Day to Thanksgiving. Is this true?
Not with some of the very tasty Tempranillos and other interesting wines coming from Southern Oregon. Just that Portland gets more visitors and folks tend to go close by.
Also, not with the bazillion new AVA designations, I would think! ;o)
It's just that the poster specified Yamhill Co. in his first post/thread, I think.
I feel ya though...
I agree with you JillO, but I'm wondering if Oregon needs to do a better job of advertising the Wine Industry as a whole. Or maybe it's just inevitiable, as you say, that most visitors will trend towards Portland. Most queries seem to have a
General "I want to visit Wine Country" plea, sort of expecting a
Napa Valley type of experience. I'm not sure that's what Oregon should strive towards, but for sure outside of Oregon there's just a vague notion of "Wine Country". I've no solution, just noting the trend.
