MEDFORD, Ore. (Aug. 29, 2022) — The 2022 Oregon Wine Experience® took place at a new  venue, Stage Pass, after two years in an all-virtual format. This year, 3,000 guests gathered and raised $2.2 million for children’s health care. For the first time, the charitable wine event broke the  $2 million fundraising threshold, attracting thousands to celebrate the very best of Oregon, and help enhance health care in Southern Oregon and Northern California through Asante  Foundation.  

“We’re so grateful for our sponsors, participating wineries, culinary partners and volunteers who  make this event a success,” said Andrea Reeder, vice president and executive director of Asante Foundation. We couldn’t have this event without the Oregon wine community—more than 100  wineries contributed to Oregon Wine Experience this year. Thank you.”  

The five-day event boasted unique tasting opportunities with award-winning Oregon wines and  custom cuvées, as well as multiple auctions, under a 38,000 square-foot tent amongst the vines:
