Linfield calls for donations to wine history archive

The News-Times

In 2011, Linfield College established the Oregon Wine History Archive, which chronicles the Oregon wine industry and includes historical documents from early wine pioneers.

The McMinnville college is now expanding the scope of its archival collection and is inviting additional Oregon wine growers from across the state to donate historical materials for preservation.

The eventual goal is to document all aspects and regions of the Oregon industry and to collect and preserve historical materials from winery owners, growers, researchers, marketers and sellers.

The college is not only interested in photographs, diaries, scrapbooks and audio or video files, but also in planting notes, crop reports, epidemic documentation, tasters’ notes, wine recipes, notebooks, correspondence, maps, committee minutes, newsletters, business records, wine labels, newspaper articles and advertising materials from early days to the present.

The Oregon Wine History Archive at Linfield College is supported by the Oregon Cultural Trust, a Linfield endowment and Woody, a full-time archivist. She can be contacted at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 503-883-2734.
