Willamette Valley Series

James Frey Collection

Oregon’s Willamette Valley represents one of the few places where climate, soil, and entrepreneurial spirit combine to produce some of the world’s best Pinot Noir and Riesling.  The area’s marginal grape-growing climate creates a thin line between exceptional quality and bitter disappointment.  Even so, the region draws together those willing to risk failure in order to produce something great.  The artist has attempted to capture the spirit, the tranquility, and the grandeur of the Willamette Valley.
