The 9th annual North Willamette Vintners Wine Trail offers you a host of rich and diverse winery experiences accompanied by food and wine pairings. You can choose to watch noir while sipping Pinot Noir, stitch together cuttings to graft a vine, toast an oak stave and smell the complex aromas released, and blend wines from single barrels to create your own unique cuvée. . . all in your first day of this spectacular two-day wine trail.

Your Wine Trail Kit includes a custom wine glass to commemorate the event, as well as a lanyard, both of which serve as your entry ticket. Upon completion of each experience, you will receive a unique button associated with that winery’s activity.
