The Oregon Wine Board (http://industry.oregonwine.org
) is a semi-independent state agency and is charged with supporting enological and viticultural research for the enhancement and promotion of grape growing and winemaking in Oregon. Funds to support this work come from mandatory taxes on grapes used to produce Oregon wine ($25/ton) and on certain wines sold in Oregon ($.02/gallon). The OWB appoints an industry-wide Research Committee, which reviews applications and makes funding recommendations to the Board.
