The chart above indicates that 47% of the wines were priced between $36 and $49 and 53% of the wines were priced between $50 and $100. Similar trend as for California Pinot Noir with 5% more Oregon wines priced less than $49. The $50-$59 range seems to be a relative dead zone for winery pricing for California and Oregon Pinot Noir, with the majority of wineries either choosing to price their wines less than $50 or above $60. There must be a marketing lesson in there somewhere but I am not sure what it is.
