Oregon Wine Board Research Process
The OWB program is now streamlined with the Unified Grant Management for Viticulture and Enology. The OWB Research Committee determines the Oregon wine industry’s top research priorities, which are then voted in by the Board. Proposals are evaluated on relevance, budget, and staff/facility resources. The Research calendar follows the Oregon Wine Board’s fiscal year, which runs July 1-June 30.
