“Wine makes every meal an occasion, every table more elegant, every day more civilized.”
No doubt, Oregon wine has come a long way since the first vines were planted: in 1970, there were five commercial wineries in Oregon and 35 recorded acres of vineyards. Today, there are more than 400 wineries and more than 20,000 acres of vineyards. The latest statistics show that the Oregon wine industry generated over $3 billion in 2015, and employed more than 17,000 people.
In 2012, Oregon Wine Month was declared to highlight the incredible wines produced in Oregon. While we think every month is Oregon Wine month, we love any excuse for a celebration! El Gaucho Portland is proudly featuring the beloved Willamette Valley’s six sub-AVA’s on their menu for the month of May. Take a journey with these phenomenal wines.
