Interview Summary

This interview is Terry Brandborg of Brandborg Vineyard & Winery and covers topics including Terry Brandborg’s involvement in the industry and the designation of Elkton as Oregon’s newest AVA (in 2013).  The interview gives insight into Brandborg’s search for the right climate and land for making Pinot, settling on Oregon, and provides speculation on the differences of making wine in California versus Oregon. Brandborg focuses on Elkton’s community involvement, the larger Umpqua region, and how “Oregon” is part of the marketing strategy for selling wine.
