PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Paul Durant has fond memories of seeing the Willamette Valley’s wine industry blossom right in front of his eyes.

“For me, I’m not trained as a viticulturist, but I grew up as one,” said Durant, the owner and general manager of Durant Vineyards & Olive Oil Mill. “I really had the benefit of growing up in the Oregon wine industry. From it’s earliest days up until now. And it’s completely changed.”
