How did the One Barrel Challenge come together? Why these seven wineries?
When and where will the wines be available for purchase, and for how long? Are there quantity limitations on purchases? How much are bottles/cases? Can I purchase all seven wines together?
One Barrel Challenge wines will be available for purchase in participating winery websites and tasting rooms starting May 1, 2021. There will be a maximum of 25 cases/300 bottles sold from each winery, and they will continue to be sold as long as supplies last. There will be a limited quantity of seven-wine cases available at a later date.

What specific changes do you wish to make in Oregon’s wine industry?
With the goal ensuring everyone who dreams of engaging with the Oregon wine industry is given an opportunity, each of the seven wineries, which range from 50-year-old heritage brands to new labels, shares in their commitment to confront racism, injustice and the broken systems limiting underrepresented communities.
