Annual WILOPN Contest

Why I Love Oregon Pinot Noir Contest


We have just concluded our 2014 annual “Why I Love Oregon Pinot Noir” contest. We asked Pinot Noir lovers from around the country to tell us “Why I Love Oregon Pinot Noir.” The most creative entry was chosen to win an all-expense-paid trip to Oregon Wine Country and Willamette Valley Vineyards.

After sifting through hundreds of photos, videos, poems and stories, a small committee within the winery chose the winning entry. The winner, David Meyer of Portland, Oregon submitted a new spin on the 1937 song by Rodgers & Hart entitled, “Where or When.”

"In July, my father Alan Meyer heard about the contest and came up with these new lyrics.  He very enthusiastically asked me to sing and submit it, so I listened to Frank Sinatra's version non-stop for two days!” said David. “Like the song says, I may not remember where or when I first fell in love with Oregon Pinot Noir, but that hasn't put a damper on our relationship.”

WVV Head Winemaker and one of this year’s judges, Don Crank said, “What we find really creative is the fact that we asked why you love Oregon Pinot Noir and this guy is telling us he loves it, but just can’t remember where or when.” Don further states, “Sometimes that’s just how it goes.”  

Entries for next years contest will be accepted May 1st through July 31st.
Good luck!
