|About The Oregon Pinot Noir Club
The Oregon Pinot Noir Club
The Oregon Pinot Noir Club leapt into operation in 1994 with the goal of providing Oregon's best pinot noirs to wine lovers around the country and around the world. Since then, we have become Oregon's leading national retailer of fine wines. Thanks to the strong support of our clients, The OPNC enjoys strong allocations of all of the top wines made in Oregon.
As a full service retailer, we offer case discounts, futures and pre-release pricing on desirable products, free wine storage during hot and cold weather, and unlimited advice on all things relating to our favorite grape.
