Oregon is now well known for growing superb wines like Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. But our wine reputation only began in 1979, when an Oregon Pinot Noir was the surprise winner of the prestigious blind tastings in Paris. Oregon has grown from a handful of wineries in the 1960s-70s to more than 500 wineries today. So serve some great Oregon wine with your crocheted caddy – or give a bottle of Oregon Pinot & the “Great Grapes” Wine Caddy as a gift!
