Accolades for Fairsing Wines from Forbes

Fairsing thanks Forbes and Contributor, Amber Gibson for including Fairsing Vineyard in the August 4, 2019 “Oregon Road Trip” piece. ⁣

We agree, Oregon is one of the most beautiful states in the country and we appreciate your featuring many of our industry peers among the highlights.⁣

“Fairsing Vineyard is another great choice, with small-production wines that you won’t find back home. The Pinot is excellent, but their flinty, fresh Chardonnay is the sleeper hit.”⁣

From popular dining, wine and lodging options within the Willamette Valley, to ideal respites along Oregon’s coast, this four-day itinerary is a wonderful reference roadmap for a deliciously memorable trip through our great state.⁣

Our sincere gratitude once again to Forbes and to Amber Gibson for visiting Fairsing Vineyard and sharing an afternoon with us.
