Enjoy Oregon Wine Country but Don't Throw Those Corks Away!

Oregon's winemakers are stewards of the land.  Many use sustainable farming practices in their vineyards where they delicately nurture their vines to produce incredible wines.

Corks - courtesy WillametteLive.comFor a true taste of Oregon Geotourism we invite you to explore the 16 Wine Regions in our Oregon Wine Country and taste some of our quality wines. Be sure to take some home for your personal wine cellar and as gifts for family and friends.

Willamette Valley Vineyards created Cork ReHarvest, and began the cork recycling movement in the US and Canada in 2008, helping to collect and recycle some of the 13 billion natural corks that are produced each year.  We've all seen the cork bulletin boards but cork can be recycled into insulation, furniture and yoga mats.  In Oregon, Cork ReHarvest partnered with Western Pulp, which incorporates collected corks into packaging material used for, you guessed it, shipping wine.

Make your reservation at an Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild member inn.  There's one is every Oregon travel region.  And after your sustainable travel vacation through the Wine Regions of Oregon is over and the last sip of fine wine has been savored be sure to recycle that cork.
