Oregon Wine History Archives visits Cooper Mountain

The Oregon Wine History Archive at Linfield University was created to collect, preserve, share, and continue the narrative of Oregon wine. The team has compiled an amazing amount of information through oral history interviews – we highly recommend getting lost in the stories of the pioneers and various characters of the Oregon wine industry on their website.

The team of archivists recently visited Cooper Mountain Vineyards to speak with Cooper Mountain founder Bob Gross, Gilles de Domingo, our longtime winemaker, and Gerry Sanchez, our vineyard manager for over 30 years. 

Bob and Gilles’ interviews are available, with Gerry’s to be released at a later date with translation. 

We’re grateful to Rich Schmidt and the Linfield team for their work and sharing these photos and videos with us!
