Uncork the World of Oregon Wines 

Wednesday, March 31st, 2004, marks the date of the upcoming 13th Annual Oregon Wine Festival, being held at St. Lawrence Hall in downtown Toronto.

Wine enthusiasts are invited to celebrate and savour the wines of Oregon. Oregon is widely recognized as having some of the finest wines in the world and boasts an impressive 250 wineries and produces in excess of 40 different varietals – several of which, including its signature grape Pinot Noir, are world-class quality.

"Oregon is well known in Toronto for fine Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris and at this festival there will be many fine examples for consumers to taste," said Myron Redford, Winemaker/Owner, Amity Vineyards. "However, it is not as well known that Oregon produces superior warm climate varietals, such as Syrah, and we look forward to showcasing these varieties as well to Ontario consumers."

Oregon's northern latitude brings long hours of summer sunshine and a cooler autumn to its vineyards, allowing the grapes to fully ripen. The Pacific Ocean moderates the climate, causing the ripening procedure for wine grapes to be gradual. The combination of these conditions causes the grapes to display their full character and utmost complex fruit flavours, aromatics and nuances – complexities that allow Oregon wines to be world-class competitors.

Proceeds from the 2004 Oregon Wine Festival will help support Toronto's Second Harvest. "We are very excited to announce that Second Harvest is our charity of choice for this event," said David Rose, President, The Forefront Communications Network Inc. "At this year's Festival, Second Harvest will be raising funds by holding a raffle with all proceeds going towards their cause. With your help we will raise awareness and much needed funds for the extremely valuable services they provide to the community on a daily basis."

About Second Harvest
Second Harvest began in 1985 by delivering food to the hungry out of the back of a station wagon. They now reach 141 social service agencies in the Metro Toronto area and provide food for over 12,000 meals every day. Second Harvest is a registered, not-for-profit charity that relies on donations from foundations, corporations and individuals. Learn more at www.secondharvest.ca.

The Oregon Wine Festival is sponsored by the Oregon Wine Board and administered by The Forefront Communications Network Inc.
