Savor Southern Oregon in Portland's Director Park was a resounding success. The beautiful weather created a convivial atmosphere to say the least. Twenty-four wineries were represented and with over 100 Southern Oregon wines for consumers to try, we believe Savor 2012 was one of the best events focusing on our region to date!

Abacela is pleased to be recognized as an Oregon Wine Pioneer. Abacela's Earl Jones will speak on Friday, September 21st for Oregon Wine Pioneers.
Feast Portland: Oregon Wine Pioneers Panel
The pioneers that came to Oregon via the Oregon Trail were most likely swigging moonshine rather than fine wine, but in the 1960s a different group of pioneers made their way North from the wine producing valleys of California seeking new winemaking territory. These Oregon wine pioneers forged a tight bond while breaking ground for their vineyards and wineries and helped define Oregon as a world-class wine region. Come hear their stories, taste their wines and hear how the wine west was won. Director Park Teacher's Fountain. 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM, $45 Tickets
