This is not a new story. As we are all aware, the interest in Washington and Oregon wine from California wine companies has been growing at an accelerated rate. Kendall Jackson's recent purchases of eponymous Oregon brands, Willakenzie and Penner-Ash, are just one of the latest indicators of large California entities making sizeable commitments in the Pacific Northwest wine industry.
This is something we see in the number of sample requests that we are getting from California wineries for Washington Cab, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay. Oregon, specifically Willamette Valley Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, are in higher and higher demand as months pass by.
It is an exciting time to witness what appears to be another seismic growth in the Pacific Northwest wine industry. Please contact us for samples and our hottest opportunities.
