The Oregon Wine History Archive (OWHA) was founded at Linfield College in 2011. The archive’s mission is to collect and preserve all aspects, stories and regions of the Oregon wine industry.

As the archive grows and develops new efforts to engage students, faculty and the broader wine industry are essential. In response, a new user-friendly website that houses the OWHA’s interviews, photos and scanned physical documents was launched this summer. The new OWHA website can be seen here.

All collections are available for use by students, faculty, researchers and the general public. The OWHA is always seeking new materials. Donating your documents or photographs ensures that they will be preserved and help tell the Oregon wine story. Please consider adding your story to the larger wine narrative.
