At Willamette: The Pinot Noir Auction, influencers of the wine trade get to experience what makes Oregon remarkable, exemplified in unique expressions of the best Pinot noir from local wineries. For two days, 80+ of the region’s wineries and winemakers will host a series of special tastings and gatherings, culminating in a live auction. Members of the trade and their guests will try Pinot noir of outstanding quality, produced in extremely limited quantities, and representing a wide range of terroirs and styles. Willamette guests have the opportunity to acquire an exceptional lot of one-of-a-kind Pinot noir and an unforgettable impression of the Oregon wine community.
The WVWA is a non-profit industry association dedicated to achieving recognition for Oregon's acclaimed Willamette Valley as a premier Pinot noir-producing region. Currently, the WVWA has more than 220 members representing wineries and tasting rooms throughout the Willamette Valley region from Portland to Eugene.
All proceeds from the auction will support the marketing, branding, and education efforts of the WILLAMETTE VALLEY WINERIES ASSOCIATION.
