I-live-in-a-cave-types who need further convincing that Oregon's wine
scene is not just full-grown but thriving, need only look at the hard evidence.
Or, in this case, brick-and-mortar evidence.
Recent news that the Oregon Wine Services & Storage company--a temperature-controlled storage space and distribution center--embarked on a $3.5 million dollar expansion to increase its 110,000-square-foot capacity by 60,000 square feet was certainly no surprise. It's a function of necessity. In a report this year from Silicon Valley Bank about the state of the wine industry, it was predicted that the wine industry as a whole, and in particular Oregon, will continue its record expansion.
