The History and AVAs of the Willamette Valley

About this week's webinar:

Winegowing in the Willamette Valley began just 55 short years ago when David Lett planted the first vineyard in the nascent volcanic soils of the Dundee Hills. From these humble beginnings, the Willamette Valley now boasts more than 590 wineries and over 750 vineyards with more than 24,000 acres under vine. In this time, the Willamette Valley was formally established in 1984, followed by several nested AVAs in the early 2000's with the most recent addition just last year.

In this webinar, we will discuss the history of the Willamette Valley, the geologic events that have shaped the area and the history of the wine region, and we'll take a tour of the nested AVAs and discuss their individual terroir characteristics and influences on the grapes and wines.

Presented by: Operations Director, Sam Schmitt, CS, WSET3, CWE.
Time: 4pm PST / 7pm EST
Duration: About an hour
