Oregon, the beauty in diversity
Oregon, in the Pacific Northwest is one of the most diverse state in the United States. The state is known for its natural beauty with abundant bodies of water, thick evergreen forests, volcanoes and dry desserts to name a few. Crater Lake, the deepest lake of USA, is also located here and is surrounded by the Crater Lake National Park. The capital, Salem and Portland are two of the most famous and populous cities in the state. The geography and the culture of the state makes Oregon quite popular among tourists.
Oregon is a young and smaller region in wine industry compared to the other wine regions in USA but certainly the one that is garnering high reputation in the international wine community. Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris are the two most planted vines in this region. The cool-climate varieties of Riesling and Chardonnay are also quite famous from Oregon.
