State sells more than 6,000 'Wine Country' license plates

Oregon's "Wine Country" license plate has been a big hit with the state's motorists. More than 6,000 sets of the specialty plates have been purchased since they went on sale in May 2012.

The plates, authorized by the Oregon Legislature in 2011, are the first specialty license plates to recognize wine production by any state in the U.S.

Through the end of April, 6,022 sets of the plates have been sold, according to the Driver and Motor Vehicle Services Division.

As of April 30, only Crater Lake specialty plates had surpassed Wine Country plates in annual sales. The state sold 11,178 Crater Lake plates in 2012.

Net proceeds from Wine Country plates directly support tourism and culinary efforts in the state. Oregon's tourism agency, Travel Oregon, administers a grant program that will open in spring 2014.

A spokesman for the Oregon Wine Center said details of the grant opportunities will be posted at industry.traveloregon.com later this year.
