series: Oregon Wine: Grapes Of Place
air date: 12/29/12 9:45 PM
In the 1960s a new breed of pioneers began arriving in Oregon's Willamette Valley determined to grow Vitis vinifera, the fine wine grapes of Europe. They were told it couldn't be done and were amply warned that western Oregon was too cold and wet for vinifera to flourish. But they came anyway with a dream of producing premium wines - in particular, Pino Noir - made from the delicate red grape of Burgundy, France. The pioneers' risky experiment created a new industry in Oregon and changed the world of wine forever.
