About Oregon Wine Month [Last updated Nov. 22]
Since 2012, the Oregon wine industry has celebrated Oregon Wine Month annually in May. The objectives of the Oregon Wine Month program are:
1. To encourage a period of increased support from distributors, restaurants and retailers in the Pacific Northwest
2. To create a platform for tactical winery promotions that stimulate sales in all channels
3. To develop deeper affinity for Oregon wine by forging an emotional connection with consumers
This toolkit is intended for anyone looking for guidance, tools and programming on Oregon Wine Month – from winery tasting rooms, distributor sales reps, restaurateurs, retail shops, national sales managers, and more.
