Scoop – The Economy is Thriving – in Oregon Wine Country

Christina Kelly wrote an article for us today, scooping just about everyone with the news that a study commissioned by the Oregon Wine Board showed that the economic impact of Oregon’s wine industry nearly doubled to $2.7 billion since the last study in 2005, stunning industry leaders who were prepared for declining numbers in a weak economy.

    This is very encouraging and good to know as I am looking to move to Oregon in the next year and the wine industry is where I want to be. I currently live in Colorado and we have some of the same pain points in that we have small wineries that don’t make that much to do big distribution. Colorado’s price points are anywhere from $7 – $30.. most people here think that is pricey. I was in Oregon last week and some of the wines I did think were pricey but for the most part they weren’t too bad.
