The Selling of Place

Taught by: Mike Randolph

The modern Oregon wine industry has insisted since its founding in the 1970s that Oregon is a world-class place for growing premium wine
grapes. In this course, students explore the development of the Oregon wine industry since the 1970s. They will analyze how Oregon vintners
have attempted to distinguish their wines from those in better known regions such as France and California. Do Oregon wines communicate a
unique and exceptional "sense of place" as their proponents proclaim? Students will explore the rhetoric behind that claim in this course.
