      Oregon Wine: A Deep-Rooted History

      The history of winemaking in Oregon is steeped in legends so well-known they've become gospel, but reality is even more fascinating. In Scott Stursa’s Oregon Wine: A Deep-Rooted History (History Press), discover the truth about who opened the state's first commercial winery and the real origin of Willamette Valley's famed Pinot Noir. Learn about Portland's daring Italian Americans, who kept home wineries during Prohibition, and the flourishing agriculture that contributed to the popularity of fruit wine. From the 19th-century winemakers through the modern industry that now includes more than 700 wineries, places like HillCrest and The Eyrie have been serving Oregonians for a half century. Uncover the forgotten roots of Oregon wine and raise a glass to its prosperous future.
