The Oregon Wine History Archive (OWHA) was founded at Linfield University in 2011. Our mission is to collect and preserve all aspects, stories and regions of the Oregon wine industry.
All our collections are available for use by students, faculty, researchers and the general public. We are always seeking new materials. Donating your documents or photographs ensures that they will be preserved and help tell the Oregon wine story. Please consider adding your story to the larger wine narrative.
We also conduct oral history interviews with people from all parts of the industry. We’re interested in talking to anyone who has played a role in the Oregon wine story. If you’re interested or would like to suggest a name, please contact us!
