Oregon wine grapes

THANKS TO OUR SPONSOR:

New coronavirus shutdown measures will impact Oregon winemakers, many of whom were already struggling to recover from the early shutdowns of their tasting rooms and the public-facing parts of their businesses. Over the summer, grape growers in the vicinity of the Oregon wildfires suffered from what’s known as smoke taint. In some cases, growers have lost buyers altogether and are struggling to find a way to survive. We discuss how the industry looks right now with Jim Bernau, the founder and CEO of Willamette Valley Vineyards.
