  •   If you’ve ever shopped for Oregon Pinot Noir, you’ve probably noticed most bottles on the shelf come from the Willamette Valley. Given 90 percent of the wine produced there is made from this thin-skinned red grape, it’s fair to say Pinot is to Willamette as tequila is to Jalisco.

  • Renaissance master Caravaggio, the great if gloomy painter, allegedly died of fever in its coastal marshes at the age of 38. The Fourteenth-century poet Dante penned of the region that even the wildest beasts would deem it inhospitable.
