      Oregon Eco-Winery Goes Beyond LEED

      Far East meets West in the vineyard

      Japanese people like Oregon wine. I know this because sales to the land of electronics and efficient cars have grown, according to reports from the Oregon Wine Board — and because six people from Tokyo and Osaka told me so. In March, a group from Mottox, the fifth-largest wine distributor in Japan, flew in to visit Ted Gerber of Foris Vineyards in Cave Junction. The group toured the perfectly pruned pinot noir vines, checked out the wine-storage rooms with cases stacked to the ceiling and stayed

      Portland, Ore.—Chardonnay is by far the most popular wine in America, and Chardonnay is the natural partner to Pinot Noir around the world—except in Oregon. Chardonnay would seem a natural fit for Oregon with its Burgundian climate, yet growers in Oregon long ago chose Pinot Gris as their favored white wine. The numbers tell the story: • 12,560 acres Pinot Noir • 2,590 acres Pinot Gris • 950 acres Chardonnay

The elaborate tasting featured 80+wineries throughout the Oregon AVAs, and a heaping handful of restaurantvendors, delicious accoutrements in-tow.

Tastingbook and floorplan in-hand, I was determined to explore and branch out ratherthan catching up with my known favorites. At these large-scale, free-for-alltasting events, I haven’t quite come up with a system. Sometimes I ask for recommendationsfrom other pourers or, a self-diagnosed font snob, I’ll often wander until alabel or logo catches my eye (gasp! but I swear, it’s a thing). In this case, I was reading through my list and came across aninteresting name: Kandarian. Admittedly I did a double-take with the subsequentwhoa, the Kardashians makewine? That would be a.w.k.w.a.r.d. Regardless, the thought amused me and Istrolled over to the Kandarian table. To my surprise and extreme delight: jackpot. Jeff Kandarian has been the winemaker for King Estate since2008 in addition to producing his own wine under the label, Kandarian WineCellars. Make no mistake – though the site is still in the works, Jeff and thewines he has created thus far are legit; everybottle of the five being poured was adventurous and memorable.

      In November, the U.S. Department of Agriculture advised the Oregon wine industry that due to budget constaints, its National Agricultural Statistics Service arm would be unable to produce the annual Oregon Vineyard and Winery Report for 2011.

      That came as an unpleasant surprise to virtually everyone involved in the making, marketing, promoting or selling of wine — or even goods and services related to wine. So the Oregon Wine Board stepped in to fund a very abbreviated version.
