WINCHESTER, Ore. - A new building on the Umpqua Community College campus will be known as the Danny Lang Teaching, Learning and Event Center after the benefactor made a huge donation this week.
Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) U.C.C officials announced Wednesday that Sutherlin attorney Danny Lang has donated $800,000 to the Southern Oregon Wine Institute and because of the donation, the 24,000 square foot building to be constructed on Vineyard Hill, will be named in his honor.

Forty-eight hours in China recently was not enough for any profound investigation of the exploding wine scene there but it was enough for me to realise that at long last there are some exciting new developments in Chinese-grown wine.
Chenin Blanc My two previous visits had been in 2002 and 2008 and on the second I had been deeply depressed by the fact that, while the rest of the world was making better wine with every vintage, the quality of the Chinese wine seemed to have stagnated. The typical Chinese wine still tastes like a very poor quality Bordeaux Rouge: sometimes not recognisably vinous, thin from overproduction, tart from under-ripeness, and often tough, thanks to an obsession with the unyielding Cabernet Sauvignon grape that has dominated vineyard plantings in China’s new wine drinking era. This seems to me to be precisely the sort of wine least likely to woo a neophyte wine drinker, and least likely to be a good match for Chinese food.
Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) But, at long last, I encountered a wine made from 100 per cent Chinese grapes that would surely be an absolutely perfect introduction to wine for anyone – such as the more than a billion Chinese who have, so far, never tasted it. And with its convincing core of fruit, easy grapiness and sizzling crispness, it would be a suitable foil for all manner of mild, spicy, sweet and sticky morsels destined for their chopsticks. The only trouble is that it is white, and therefore, in theory, of limited appeal to Chinese consumers.

(AP)– 1 day ago VICTOR, N.Y. — The world's biggest wine company is selling an 1880s-era winery to a rival business in New York's Finger Lakes wine country instead of shutting its doors.
Sauvignon Blanc Constellation Brands Inc. says an affiliate of Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards is paying an undisclosed sum to buy the historic Widmer Winery in Naples, 40 miles southeast of Rochester.
Chenin Blanc Constellation is the biggest wine maker by volume. It sells or markets more than 100 brands, including Manischewitz, Widmer, Paul Masson and Taylor. It said Wednesday the Widmer sale is expected to be completed by June.
