Oak Knoll and Handcrafted Collaborate for Midwest Distribution

A collaboration between Oak Knoll Winery and Handcrafted Wine & Spirits combines both wine making and wine distribution capabilities. This partnership strengthens both organizations’ abilities to provide product and service to restaurants and retailers throughout Oregon, Kansas and Oklahoma.

“As a family-owned company and one of the oldest wineries in Oregon, we found in Handcrafted a company that reflects our passion and values,” Greg Lint, Oak Knoll Winery president.

Hillsboro-based Oak Knoll is the oldest winery in Washington County. It first achieved notoriety for Pinot Noir when the 1980 Vintage-Select bottling won best of show and the governor’s trophy at the 1983 Oregon State Fair wine competition.
