Sun, 12/16/2018 - 9:00am

As an Oregonian, I am so grateful for this time of year, when we wrap ourselves in scarves and sweaters, and gather around the hearth with loved ones. With the last leaves fallen, and the first snows laying thick across the Cascades, I am reminded once again of the incredible beauty and bounty of our beloved state, and especially of the connections between Oregon's forests and families like yours and mine.

In the late 1980’s Oregon’s wine industry was still in its infancy. In Southern Oregon there were only a handful of wineries when Don and Traute Moore started planting their vineyards. “When we came to this work, we knew nothing about planting grapes” mused Don. But through trial and error, testing, learning, adaptation, and a dedicated crew by their sides, the Moore’s persisted and have become a regional powerhouse for wine.
