Share your thoughts on Oregon Wine Month – your feedback is vital to strengthening our programs

Oregon Wine Month 2017 is in the books! Thanks to all of you who came out in force to help make May a great success. We saw creative events in tasting rooms, enticing specials on mailing lists, impressive in-store displays, loads of partnerships with restaurants, and an extraordinary amount of social media activity.

The OWB marketing team works hard to put together an Oregon Wine Month program that gives wineries, distributors and accounts the tools and support needed to drive sales across direct-to-consumer and distributed channels alike. Each year, we carefully review the feedback you give and use it to make the program even stronger. Please take five minutes to give us your feedback on Oregon Wine Month 2017.

As a reminder, here is a brief recap of the elements of the 2017 program:
