The history of wine production in Oregon can be traced to before Prohibition; it became a significant industry beginning in the 1970s when out-of-state winemakers migrated to the state and started to organize it as an industry. In 2005, Oregon ranked third among U.S. states with 303 wineries. It’s no wonder that with that many wineries, a tourism industry has developed around wine tasting! And out of all US wine growing regions, Oregon ranked third in number of wineries and fourth in production. Talk about my kind of state!
In addition to the wine industry, timber production, logging and agriculture industries also contribute to the state’s economy. And the fact that large public corporations such as Nike, Inc. Precision Castparts Corp., Northwest Natural Gas and StanCorp Financial Group all have headquarters in Oregon may help as well.
So as you can see, there are plenty of reasons to call Oregon home. And if you’re in the market for an apartment there, why not check out a few of these….
