Oregon Wine Industry Awards
Each year, industry members are recognized for their contributions to the Oregon wine industry.
Nominations for the Oregon Wine Industry Awards are open year round. Submissions received by November 11, 2022, will be considered for awards which will be presented early the following year.
Those who nominate an industry peer who is later selected to receive an award are expected to provide a 2-3 minute personal, recorded message for the awards ceremony. The award recipient will also be invited to record their video message of acceptance. If you cannot, or prefer not to, present the award to the nominee, you will be expected to identify an alternate for the video presentation.
Awardees will be acknowledged as a group on the podium at the 2023 Symposium.
