New Wine Documentary to Showcase Willamette Valley

I got a call today from a guy back in Ft. Collins, Colorado who plans to do a documentary about Willamette Valley wines.

His passion and desire to showcase our bounty here in Oregon was contagious. This is quite an honor in which our region should be proud. Today on Wine Bytes, my wine blog on OregonLive, I talk about the Willamette Valley documentary which will showcase the region showing the world how special this region really is – by documenting those who have persevered the early times leading to our present time.

    It’s really cool that your wine region is getting some recognition. The owner of Naylor Winery in Pennsylvania told me that there is at least one winery in every state now. Who would have known…

    I recently saw a documentary for Washington state called Washington State: Get the Dirt on Wine. It was a good program highlighting the states vineyards and went into great detail about its terrain and soil conditions. I’m looking forward to this since I’m not familiar with Oregon’s history. I know they make Pinot, that is about it.
