Oregon

(United States)

The Oregon is the ninth largest state in the United States, located in the north-western part of the country is one of the few regions that enjoys the privilege of being washed by the waters of the Pacific Ocean. The Oregon is a territory rich in different natural landscapes, the west coast is characterized by reliefs enriched by temperate rain forests and tall conifers, while the eastern part of the country is embellished with numerous lakes, prairies and waterfalls, in the southernmost part of the region there are also desert areas. The climate of the State is also diversified, the Pacific coast enjoys mild temperatures throughout the year, while the internal area has a strictly rigid and rainy climate. The Oregon soil lends itself well to the wine culture as it is strictly deep and clayey, the sub-areas that are dedicated to the production of vines are: WallaWalla and Columbia to the northeast; Umpqua and The Rogue to the south, ending with Willamette Valley. These are mainly products of Pinot Noir, but also Pinot grigio and bianco, Chardonnay and Riesling. The Federal State is also known for the production of whiskey, the workhorse is Crater Lake Rye. Produced in one of the smallest distilleries in the country, which with love and passion tends to protect and protect the original taste of rye whiskey. Unlike most competing products, whiskey is not cold-filtered and is only aged for a year, with the aim of keeping intact the spicy and unique flavor of the distillate.

Soil and climate
The climate is influenced by the presence of the Pacific Ocean, even if its effects are less tangible in the most eastern territories. Generally the climate is temperate, although extreme weather conditions can occur. Rainfall varies greatly from area to area, ranging from a minimum of 20 cm of rain per year to some points of the plateau to the east, with maximum values ​​of about 500 cm on certain sides of the westerner mountain ranges. Oregon is often associated with the idea of ​​a wet and humid state, but this is essentially true of the westernmost part of the state, while the central part, and even more the eastern part, have characteristics of opposite precipitation.
History
In Oregon in 1854 the first European vines were planted. After a period of decline, like the one that had hit California, viticulture took on new impetus in the 1960s. The Davis experts began experimenting with Pinot Noir and the Californian winemakers, Bill Fuller and Richard Sommer, settled in this area. Another pioneer, enthusiastic about Pinot Noir, was David Lett, who was not scared of the risks of spring or autumn rains, and then bought a vineyard, to which he gave the name of Eyrie. The great success of the Pinot Noir wines of Oregon came with the Gault Millau "Wine Olympics" in Paris in 1979, where Eyrie Vineyards Pinot Noir '75, came in third place. It was on this occasion, that Robert Drouhin, realized the potential of Oregon, and bought, in the Willamette Valley, his company, Domaine Drouhin Oregon, which is now directed by his daughter Veronique.
