It’s no secret Oregon produces exceptional wine. But the “how” and “why” often gets lost among its 72 grape varieties and nearly 800 small production wineries.

Get a global understanding of this premier wine region and stand out in the industry with a postnominal certification in Oregon wine.

Developed by Master of Wine and Willamette Valley resident Bree Stock, Oregon Wine Expert™ was created for busy schedules. Learn at your own pace with seven manageable learning modules.
