What Draws People to Southern Oregon Wines?


Monday, March 4th, I attended Southern Oregon Visitors Association’s annual marketing symposium.  On the panel about Southern Oregon Wines, I heard Earl from Abacela Wineries explain the “Three Ps” as the answer to why people come to Southern Oregon for the wines. He claims people are escaping from Portland, Precipitation and Pinot!

As most of my guests come from California, (nearly 50%!), I think my visitors are escaping the Three Cs: California, Crowds, and Cabernet!
