Our partnership with ¡Salud! means your weekend of enjoyment will help provide healthcare for the vineyard workers who grow the Oregon wines we love.

Each year, winemakers from the state's foremost wineries debut the new vintage by presenting a custom cuvée of the best Pinot noir from their cellars.

Because many of these laborers do not work year-round, standard insurance options are not available. Language and cultural barriers place even more obstacles between these people and the services they need.

These one-of-a-kind wines are auctioned off over the course of a November weekend spent in the company of ¡Salud! winemakers, savoring the cuisine of the Pacific Northwest's best chefs, and visiting lovely winery and downtown Portland locations. Now in its 19th year, ¡Salud! Oregon's Pinot Noir Auction has raised over $6 million. Each dollar spent returns over three dollars in goods and services, thanks to the outstanding support of the Oregon medical community.
