Here are some tips from The North Willamette Vintners to make the most of your holiday weekend:

  • Drive less, taste more. Avoid the long drive and congested roadways by visiting the wineries located in Portland’s backyard, shaping the northern gateway to Oregon’s wine country.
  • Discover new wineries. Experience a new label or visit a boutique winery not typically open for tastings.
  • Taste exceptional wines. Be among the first to enjoy new releases, barrel samples and paired flights.
  • Learn from the pros. Meet the winemakers and learn about the style, characteristics and unique attributes of their wine.
  • Experience wine country. Participate in a traditional tribal salmon bake, watch a live landscape painting, stroll along a garden walk, tour the vineyards, relax to live music and soak in the spectacular vineyard views while enjoying a picnic lunch.

See you soon!
