We can find the best wines of the Pacific Northwest converge in Oregon. The climate in the Willamette Valley AVA ( a big place of 5,200 square miles) is influenced by the Pacific ocean and during the summer the sky is often gray, even if the rains tend to arrive at the end of September, frequently when harvesting. This region offers wonderful varieties of wine. There are five wine regions in Oregon: The Rogue and Umpqua, in the south of the state, Columbia and WallaWalla in the northeast, which border on Washington State, and Willamette Valley, the most important area. Pinot noir is the best expression of this territory: here you can find even more elegant wines than those from California, with a good finesse and aging capacity.
