The luxury of Oregon wine is rooted in the harmony of art, science, farming and intent. It is the long days and nights, passion and perseverance that sews together Oregon’s wine community.  This 30-year-old black and white photo of pioneers Ken Wright (Ken Wright Cellars) and Mike Etzel (Beaux Frères) comes full circle as a honest reminder where the luxury of Oregon’s world-class wine industry started– built by the hands of harvest to bring these outstanding wines to savor across the world.
