Event description

After a wet Oregon winter we are ready to roll open our cellar doors and celebrate spring on Saturday, Sunday and Monday of Memorial weekend. Every year we welcome you to discover new wineries, visit a boutique winery open for the holiday weekend or visit an old favorite and taste a new release or barrel sample. With our close proximity to Portland, you can experience an authentic Willamette Valley wine country visit for a day excursion or make a weekend of it!

Serious about wine and looking for an amazing experience?  Don't miss case buyers weekend on May 19 and 19.  Many wineries will be offering great specials on case purchases that weekend!
