South Korea’s largest retailer is about to receive about 27,000 bottles of Oregon wine as part of a promotion celebrating the Korean Free Trade Agreement's first anniversary.

 

Oregon Department of Agriculture spokesperson Amanda Welker says two 40-foot containers of Oregon pinot are on their way.

 

"All Oregon pinots. The majority will be red, but that's what the preference is in Korea because they associate that with good health.  But the white wine is increasing in popularity largely because it goes with the Korean food."

 

The transaction marks the largest ever single shipment of Oregon wines to South Korea.

 

The Free Trade Agreement eliminates tariffs on U.S. wines and now Oregon wines can better compete with those from Chile, Australia and New Zealand in the fast growing South Korean market.
