Viticulture and Oenology


This harvest report for the Oregon wine industry from 2007 explains how, despite weather challenges, farmers and winemakers were able to produce good quality wines with lower alcohol levels. Rains came at an unusual time in the year for the Willamette Valley; in the Applegate, Rogue, and Umpqua Valleys, cooler conditions resulted in less heat stress, producing more balanced fruit and higher yields for growers. The report also includes four-region comparative data prepared by climatologist Dr. Greg Jones.
