The Oregon Wine History Archive at Linfield University was created to collect, preserve, share, and continue the narrative of Oregon wine. Everything on our site is freely available to researchers interested in Oregon wine history.

  • Our collection of oral history interviews with people throughout the Oregon wine industry allows viewers to hear the Oregon wine story told by the people who have helped created it.
  • Our regions page shows our digital collections from people, wineries, vineyards, business and organizations throughout the state.
  • Historical photographs, wine labels and photographs taken during our oral history interviews are available on our photos page.

The growth of the Oregon wine industry extends from the farmers and winemakers to the marketers, scientists, innovators, and dreamers of the enterprise — all of whom are vital to the industry’s success. It is our aim to link the past, present, and future of the industry in hopes of sharing the story of Oregon wine.
