Partner Chris Hermann was quoted in Capital Press in an article titled “Oregon's wine industry emerges as an outsized ag force.” The article discusses the significant  economic impact of Oregon’s booming wineries, breweries, distilleries and hard cider makers. A recent estimate of the economic impact of the Oregon wine industry put the figure at $3.35 billion, with more than 17,000 wine-related jobs and $527 million in wages.

Hermann, chair of the Stoel Rives Winery and Vineyard Management group, credits vineyards and wineries with transforming rural communities and being a catalyst of economic development “up and down the Willamette Valley” and throughout Oregon. He also says “wineries led the way” in starting Oregon’s local food movement—fine restaurants and later craft beer and spirit producers.
