History Pub: Geological History and the development of Oregon’s Wine Industry (29-October-2012)

Geological History and the development of Oregon’s Wine Industry is the topic of the latest History Pub at the Kennedy School (5736 NE 33rd), on Monday, October 29, 2012.

This special Oregon Wine program will explore the relationship of geology, soils, and climate to wine, and discuss the development of the wine industry in our State, noting the geology of the wine regions, and show how they have meshed.

Additionally, exciting progress with the Oregon Wine History Archive (OWHA) will be described and explained. Materials in the developing OWHA collection will eventually document all aspects of the Oregon wine industry; including people from every aspect of work, wineries from every Oregon region, and materials that illustrate the process from the planting of the grape to the bottling and selling of wine.

The presenters are Scott F. Burns, professor of Geology, Portland State University, and Rachael Cristine Woody, Archivist, Linfield College.

Join event co-sponsors Oregon Historical Society and Holy Names Heritage Center at 7pm Monday for a beer and history! Admission is free and this event is all ages. Please bring canned food donations for the Oregon Food Bank!
