Record wine crop for Oregon in 2007

Published:  23 July, 2008

Oregon has produced a record crop of grapes for third consecutive year, new figures show.

A report from the Oregon Field Office of the National Agricultural Statistics Service found wineries in the region sold 1.7 million cases in 2007.

This equated to $207.8m (102.5m) of sales.

Chris Mertz, director at the Oregon Field Office, told AP: "I think it's just another impressive figure to show the continued growth in Oregon."

There was a 15% increase in both Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris production while Cabernet Sauvignon production jumped by 33%.
