Present Duties

The Oregon Wine Board (OWB) is a semi-independent state agency managing marketing, research and education initiatives that support and advance the Oregon wine and wine grape industry. The OWB works on behalf of all Oregon wineries and independent growers throughout the state’s diverse wine­growing regions. The Oregon wine grape and wine industry contributes more than $2.7 billion in economic activity to the state economy each year, including more than 13,518 wine-related jobs and $382 million in wages.

The OWB was formed in 2003, employs about eight people and is headquartered in Portland. The OWB relies on several advisory committees of industry members to help guide its decision-making.
