What is Oregon Solidarity?
“During September of 2018, in the middle of harvest, Rogue Valley winegrowers were notified their fruit contracts were canceled just days before scheduling to pick. A large, out-of-state winery, had rejected over 2,000 tons of fruit, $4 million of contract value, citing smoke taint from the season’s wildfires.
Willamette Valley Vineyards and King Estate Winery teamed up to help winegrowers whose grape contracts were abruptly canceled. Independent laboratory analysis showed much of the crop was well below the threshold to be adversely affected by smoke. The two wineries purchased as much stranded wine grapes as possible, paying the full contracted rates to help the growers.
They were joined by Silvan Ridge Winery and The Eyrie Vineyards to collaboratively make a Rogue Valley AVA labeled Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Rosé of Pinot Noir called Oregon Solidarity.
The net sale proceeds from the wines will be donated to the Rogue Valley Vintners to help support vineyards in the region.
Thank you for sharing in the Oregon spirit of solidarity!”
