In 2011, Linfield College established the Oregon Wine History Archive (OWHA), which is committed to preserving and sharing the story of Oregon wine. With our mission to collect and preserve all aspects and regions of the Oregon wine industry, we have a growing group of collections from winery owners, winemakers, grape-growers, marketers, enthusiasts and sommeliers.

DigitalCommons@Linfield provides an overview of the collection, as well as related exhibits and highlights from each wine grower or organization. Some items in these collections were initially digitized as part of the Oregon Wine History Project, a collaborative research venture from the Linfield Center for the Northwest.

To view collection materials in person, or to view materials that have not been digitized, please contact archivist Rachael Cristine Woody.

For more information, please go to the Linfield College Archives website or the OWHA information page.
