The influence of cattle & weather on Oregon wine

Locals say that if you don't like the weather now in Oregon wine country, wait a minute or two. This time lapse shows 30 minutes of Oregon Spring-time weather in Briggs Hill Valley seen from Sweet Cheeks Winery vineyard just south of Eugene in the Willamette Valley.

Besides the clouds and sun breaks, watch the ant-sized cattle on the center left side of the big barn. (Cattle are part of the Oregon terroir, providing valuable aromas to make a more complex wine.)
