Your frequently asked questions:

What is Pour Oregon?

The Pour Oregon wine festival is your chance to discover small, artisanal wine producers from all over Oregon. There's so much great wine in this state from Southern Oregon's Rogue, Applegate, and Umpqua Valleys, to the little places like Elkton and Milton-Freewater, to the hills and valleys of the great Willamette Valley.

At Pour Oregon, you'll also experience the great diversity of Oregon wines. Sure, we'll have plenty of Pinot Noir -- but also glorious Oregon reds like Tempranillo, Gamay Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon; and brilliant Oregon whites like Viognier, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, and dry Riesling. We believe that wine is about exploration and discovery. You're going to love this. Get your tickets now!

Where and when is Pour Oregon happening?

Pour Oregon is a one-day event on April 26, 2020. It will be open to the public from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. (A special tasting event for wine industry members will be earlier in the day.)
