The Oregon Wine Experience® has quickly become the premiere regional wine event with unique activities. Each activity provides a fascinating encounter for wine enthusiasts of all levels. The Oregon Wine Competition® is the lead event, followed by a wide array of wine-themed classes and exclusive vintner dinners leading into the main events:

This premier wine and culinary event has vastly grown in popularity and recognition. In 2018, more than 4,500 attendees from across the states and as far as New Zealand reveled in the many activities offered over the multi-day event. And more than $1,300,000 was raised for Children’s Miracle Network and other healthcare programs supported by Asante Foundation.
Produced by the Asante Foundation, 100 percent of all proceeds raised go directly to Asante’s Children’s Miracle Network and other health care programs supported by the Asante Foundation. In its first three years, over $1.5 million was raised, directly benefitting the health care of thousands of children. As a Children’s Miracle Network designated hospital, Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center provides the highest level of pediatric care in the region.
The event is looking to build on its philanthropic success, and continue its upward movement to secure the best in health care for our youngest residents.
