What is OWE?

Oregon Wine Experience is one of the top destination wine and culinary events in the country benefitting charity. This distinct experience located in historic Jacksonville, Oregon celebrates the state’s unrivaled wines, paired with mouthwatering culinary creations unique to only Oregon.

The week-long event boasts the full breadth and depth of Oregon’s vast varietal selections. Savor thieved tastes of exclusive wine futures found only at the Founders’ Barrel Auction. Join us as we honor the top winemaking talent during the Medal Celebration. Sample award-winning wine from all corners of the state at the Grand Tasting. And raise a glass to toast the very best of Oregon at the Miracle Auction & Salmon Bake.

Immerse yourself among the breathtaking surroundings of Oregon and discover why this extraordinary encounter is a must for any wine and food enthusiast.


After nearly a decade of events and fundraising to support children’s health care programs, Asante Foundation will no longer host Oregon Wine Experience® (OWE). After close evaluation of the overall investment and return, OWE is no longer financially viable as a fundraising event in a post-pandemic economy.

We extend our immense gratitude to every sponsor, vendor, winery, volunteer and guest who helped make OWE a reality.
