Linfield’s new wine history archive makes contribution to OPB documentary

Linfield’s Oregon Wine History Project played a role in “Grapes of Place,” a new documentary about early Oregon winemakers that was produced by Oregon Public Broadcasting.

Oregon Experience producers made use of the Linfield College archive, which preserves historical documents, images and interviews with winemakers, and the documentary was shot, in part, at Linfield College as the school hosted the International Pinot Noir Celebration.

Linfield’s Oregon Wine History Archive was also highlighted in The Huffington Post.

“This is an example of a project that blends the historical with the contemporary,” the Post said in an article titled “The Legacy of the Digital Generation, “and we applaud Linfield for their innovative approach to collecting today’s history for tomorrow’s generations.”
