Just released by the Oregon Winegrowers Association, the Reference Toolbox is a dynamic online business support center that OWA members can access on-demand to learn more about the regulatory, policy and legislative environment critical to their business. It is an exclusive OWA member benefit designed with member input since its inception. The Reference Toolbox incorporates extensive federal and state policy documentation to help members protect and manage their businesses, as well as insightful legal perspectives and guidance from attorneys at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP (DWT), who bring decades of industry experience on a wide range of critical issues. It is the only site of its kind available to Oregon wineries and growers that provides an aggregated, up-to-date collection of relevant policies, rules, laws, reference documents and guidance that our community members should be aware of and comply with.
To get started, login to the OWA website with your username and password and then locate the Reference Toolbox tab along the top bar. Choose between winery or vineyard information and explore from there. For those that are not yet members, please contact Jessica Blauert for a 24-hour preview of the Reference Toolbox.
