•Oregon’s wine industry is expecting sales growth of between 7%-11% in 2012, according to research commissioned by the Oregon Wine Board. Driven by Pinot Noir, which is expanding at around 10% annually, as well as Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Riesling, sales of Oregon wine have risen by 12% annually over the past five years, hitting $252 million in 2011. Just over one-third of Oregon wine shipments stay in the Pacific Northwest region, while direct-to-consumer sales account for roughly 20% of the state’s wine business.
