At what rate is Oregon’s wine industry growing?

Oregon’s wine industry has grown consistently and rapidly!

In 1995, Oregon had 92 wineries crushing grapes and producing wine.

In 2000, that number had climbed to 122.

In 2005, Oregon wineries increased in numbers to 215.

In 2010, it had increased again to 310.

As of 2016, 424 Oregon wineries were crushing grapes.

These statistics don’t include wineries that purchasing juice or participating in private production, which by some estimates in 2017 account for up to 300 additional wineries across the State.

Is the Oregon wine industry led by any official organizations?

There is no one single group in charge or control of Oregon wineries. However, several independent groups provide local wineries with a number of services, including wine shipping legislation, event planning, and wine marketing. These include:

– Oregon Wine Advisory Board

– Oregon Winegrowers Association

– Southern Oregon Winegrowers Association

– Yamhill County Wineries Association

– And of course… OregonWines.com!
