Oregon wineries celebrate a very good year

The Oregonian recently reported that the 2008 vintage of Oregon wines is drawing rave reviews from wine publications around the country.
That’s a particular relief, coming in the wake of tepid notices for the state’s 2007 vintage.
Now, I’m no wine expert, but I’ve been a fan of Oregon pinot noir for years, even before I moved here. With that said, though, it’s a good bet that I wouldn’t have been able to discern much difference between the 2007 and 2008 vintages.
But, increasingly, a lot of people can — and that could mean good times for this fascinating (and fast-growing) Oregon industry.
Many of the state’s 400 or so wineries are reporting improved sales over last year.
