Murdock Talks: "Willamette Valley Wineries"

  • Museum of the Oregon Territory 211 Tumwater Drive Oregon City, OR, 97045 United States (map)


Despite its short, 50-year history, Oregon's Willamette Valley was named Wine Region of the Year in 2016 by Wine Enthusiast, besting Champagne, France; Crete, Greece; and Sonoma, California. Credit for the award can be traced to the pioneer winemakers, a small group of dreamers who—through grit and determination—succeeded in growing grapes where it was considered impossible. Others joined the adventure, and through collaboration and a passion for making the best wine possible, the Willamette Valley's wine industry was born. Presented by Barbara Randall, author of the book by the same name, "Willamette Valley Wineries" takes a look at the challenges and successes that led to the burgeoning local wine industry- complete with wine provided at the event.
