WE ARE PINOT: THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY

The Willamette Valley, Oregon’s leading wine region, has two-thirds of the state’s wineries and vineyards and is home to more than 500 wineries. It is recognized as one of the premier Pinot noir producing areas in the world.

The Willamette Valley is a huge and varied appellation that includes seven nested appellations: Chehalem Mountains, Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills, McMinnville, Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton, and the Van Duzer Corridor.

Buffered from Pacific storms on the west by the Coast Range, the valley follows the Willamette River north to south for more than a hundred miles from the Columbia River near Portland to just south of Eugene. To the east, the Cascade Range draws the boundary between the Willamette Valley’s misty, cool climate and the drier, more extreme climate of eastern Oregon.

At its widest point, this long, broad valley spans sixty miles. Overall, the climate boasts a long, gentle growing season – warm summers with cool evenings; bursts of Indian summer into fall; mild winters followed by long springs. In ideal years the maritime climate provides the best conditions possible for growing the cool-climate grape variety for which Oregon is best known: Pinot noir. In lesser years, fall weather can be tricky, causing winemakers to pull their hair. By this measure the Willamette Valley compares favorably with the Burgundy and Alsace regions of France. And, like it or not, the often finicky Willamette Valley climate is the promised land for Pinot noir in America.

THE VENUE: MORGAN MANUFACTURING

Located in the up-and-coming Fulton Market area, Chicago’s quickly developing epicenter of innovation and technology, Morgan Manufacturing offers the space and inspiration to host any event. A building dating to before the Great Chicago Fire, there is some definite history within the walls. Near the 90/94 expressways, two blocks southwest of the blue line and two blocks north of the green line, we are easily accessible from just about anywhere. Downtown and River North are a stone’s throw across the river with ample hotels just a short cab ride away.

WHERE TO STAY: THE ACE HOTEL CHICAGO

Ace Hotel Chicago lives in a stoic, industrial concrete and glass building in the West Loop, once home to an Italian-American cheesemaking company and, before that, a pair of mysterious brothers. We're walking distance to the Morgan Lake L Station and some of the best food in the city. You can throw a coin and hit Google (we don't recommend it, they've got cameras) and what once was Oprah Winfrey's HQ.
