Oregon has increasingly received international acclaim fir vineyards and these days the Willamette Valley is the center of a wine region

That was 30-plus years ago, but since then it has increasingly received international acclaim and these days the Willamette Valley is the center of a wine region that is world-famous for some of America’s best Pinot Noir.
