Background

ABOUT THE OREGON CHARDONNAY CELEBRATION 

The seventh annual Oregon Chardonnay Celebration takes place Saturday, February 24, 2018 at The Allison Inn & Spa in Newberg, Oregon. The Celebration educates both industry members and consumers about the varietal in a non-competitive environment. The event begins with a seated topical seminar and tasting followed by the Grand Tasting, a walkaround sampling of over 40 Oregon producers, one of the region’s largest varietal-specific tastings. Attendees have a choice of participating in both the seminar and Grand Tasting or the Grand Tasting only.

Formerly known as The Oregon Chardonnay Symposium, the Oregon Chardonnay Celebration delves deep into what makes Oregon Chardonnay unique, each year focusing on different aspects of the varietal and its place in the state. Bringing together both pioneers and the current generation of Oregon producers, the Oregon Chardonnay Celebration provides a lens through which we can view the past, present, and future of Oregon Chardonnay.

CHARDONNAY IN THE NEWS

“Although each wine was an undeniably individual expression of the Chardonnay grape, they all shared a connective thread that was decidedly Oregonian: an intensity of fruit, coupled with a firm mineral thread.” ~ Lettie Teague, These Oregon Winemakers are Making Chardonnay Cool Again
