“Pretty early in my life as a Willamette Valley winegrower, I heard the story about Ernest Reuter, the Forest Grove winemaker, who had won a gold medal for his Klevner wine at the St. Louis World’s Fair of 1904.  It was a story that had double appeal – it spoke to the fame of Oregon wines in the pre-prohibition era and it enhanced the reputation of Pinot blanc.  “Klevner”  wasn’t exactly the name of a single variety – it has referred over time to many members of the Pinot family (even Pinot noir) but most often it seemed to mean Pinot blanc.  At least in the early 1970’s that’s what I thought."
