First Taste Oregon at the Oregon State Fair & Exposition Center features some of the best Oregon has to offer in art, wine, brew, spirits and food on Jan. 26-27.

If wine is not your thing, enjoy a hard cider or a craft brew from one of the state’s best craft brewers or discover your new favorite distilled beverage. Plus, with various artists and commercial vendors, you’re sure to find a one-of-a-kind must-have item.

There will be 43 wineries among the 75 craft beverage producers, including 40:31 Wines, Awen Winecraft, Benedetto Vineyards, Chris James Cellars, Darque Wines, Flora Jane Cellars, The Potter’s Vineyard and Willamette Valley Vineyards.

Musical talent will perform on the First Taste Stage, which presents a variety of acts.
