Why Should Someone Do Business in Southern Oregon? My 5-year residence in Southern Oregon has made me realize how much I was missing all of my previous years in Oregon. What an amazing location to live! Gorgeous mountains, rivers and lakes with a vibrant wine industry well on its way to becoming the next Napa Valley.
