Ranching Continues To Boost Wine Industry

(Wine Press Release) The past five years have witnessed a dramatic rise in the number of vineyards in Oregon, and Oregon’s wine industry is booming. With 17,000 vineyards spread across the state – representing more than 600 wineries, according to Oregon Wine Board — Oregon wine producers are ensuring wine lovers will have a lot of choices in 2018.
