The Willamette Valley Wineries Association or WVWA is a non-profit association dedicated to our incredibly beautiful and world-wide recognized, wine country region of the Willamette Valley. It is here to honor and protect this acclaimed region in Oregon and its TOP produced grape, Pinot Noir and others. The WVWA members represent wineries and tasting rooms throughout the Willamette Valley region from Portland to Eugene. The WVWA began in 1986, originally the Yamhill County Wineries Association, with 11 member wineries. Its first officers were early wine country pioneers, Dick Erath, Bill Blosser, and David Lett. Eight of the original wineries are still members to this day. In 2004, the association grew to include the entire Willamette Valley and changed its name to The Willamette Valley Wineries Association.
