Similarly to other places that produce high quality Pinot Noir, Oregon's Willamette Valley is divided into many regions and subregions - each producing their own unique flavors and textures. St. Innocent Winery's Winemaker Mark Vlossak talks in this video about those subregions and how they came to exist.
This is the 2nd of 5 videos featuring Mark Vlossak that I produced during my 2012 trip to Oregon. The first video "Understanding Oregon Pinot Noir" can be found here.
I interviewed Mr. Vlossak in the cellars of St. Innocent Winery.
This is episode #48 of Understanding Wine with Austin Beeman.
