Oregon Wine Board Brings 50 Wineries to LA on April 24


Sample Oregon artisan foods and white, red and sparkling wines at first Oregon Wine Trail event in the U.S., to be held at The Line Hotel

PORTLAND, March 21, 2018 — Taste fine Oregon wines to your heart’s content when 50 Oregon winemakers descend on Los Angeles for Oregon Wine Trail, a one-day event on April 24 at The Line Hotel in Los Angeles. Hosted by the Oregon Wine Board, the event will feature artisan winemakers and their hand-crafted wines partnered with Oregon food companies that have gained a national following, including Olympia Provisions, Salt & Straw, Stumptown Coffee Roasters and more. Chefs Collaborative, a national nonprofit working with chefs to build a better food system, is the community partner for the event, and Los Angeles wine professionals and wine lovers will be treated to pours with many winemakers and growers on hand.

“LA is the perfect place to start spreading the love for the work done by our 725 winemakers in Oregon,” said Sally Murdoch, communications manager at the Oregon Wine Board. “This event will be an immersive Oregon experience and our hope is that LA’s wine enthusiasts will fall in love with what we’re making and pouring, then order them at their favorite restaurants and buy them at their local wine shops. Maybe even schedule a visit up on Oregon and see us first-hand, too.”
