Viticulture and Oenology


Bob McRitchie looks through a pile of newspaper articles during an oral history interview with staff from the Linfield College Archives. The archives staff found a number of articles about McRitchie during his Oregon wine career and brought them to the interview for him to peruse.

Now retired, McRitchie was hired as the winemaker at Sokol Blosser Winery in 1977, moving up from California wine country to take the job. This interview took place at McRitchie's home and focused on his life and career, thoughts on winemaking and the wine industry, and the changes he's seen during the time he's been involved with Oregon wine.
