Just fifty years ago, Oregon had no wine industry of consequence. Today, the state teems with a wine culture that matches the fecundity of its land and the vital spirit of its people. The pioneers who dared that tradition into being, from astrophysicists to cherry farmers to harpsichord makers, stand poised to pass on their legacy to an eager new generation. The bold experimentation of urban wineries now joins the steady contributions of outstanding producers like Bethel Heights, Cerulean Skies, Eyrie and Honeywood. Kenneth Friedenreich, a noted Oregon wine writer and an equally ardent Oregon wine devotee, seizes this moment of transition to probe the state's fascinating oenological frontiers and evaluate the repercussions of the industry's dramatic success. Based on dozens of interviews and even more glasses of wine, this drinking companion volume traverses the full range of Oregon's viticultural areas, providing useful AVA maps, historical photos and extensive winery listings.

The purchase and consumption of wine, whether in hospitality environments or domestic settings, has huge anthropological significance underpinned by a discourse of wine appreciation. It can be seen as a multi-sensory and symbolically status-rich activity framed by historical, social, cultural and ethical discourses. This innovative book offers a critical study of wine from social and cultural perspectives. The field of wine studies spans the spectrum of cultural and technical issues concerning the place of wine in society from viticulture, vinification, labelling, regulation, marketing, purchasing, storage and its final consumption. It combines social history and contemporary questions including the notion of terroir, the nature of protected wine designations, the pricing of wine and the different motivations for buying and consuming wine. It considers wine as a beverage, as an aesthetic exercise and as a marker of status, as well as health implications and legal controls. The title offers a timely contribution into the significance of wine and the role of knowledge, both of which have conceptual and managerial implications in terms of marketing, promotion, consumption and distribution. By offering a holistic and innovative understanding of wine and its consumption, it is a must-read for students and scholars in the fields of wine and social science.
