We have a fabulous wine tour planned for this years "spring tour". We will be visiting several beautiful wineries in Oregon's premier Pinot region, the Willamette Valley.
The Willamette Valley, Oregon's leading wine region, has 2/3rds of the state's wineries and vineyards and is home to nearly 500 wineries. It is recognized as one of the premier Pinot noir-producing areas in the world.
If you are looking for a reason to incorporate more pinot noir into your diet, you're in luck. A recent article published in Forbes claims that pinot noir may be the healthiest type of wine to drink, and that's thanks to the fact that it contains higher levels of resveratrol than other varietals.
Included in the $90 fee is 2 tasting fees as well as an exclusive lunch and tour a Laccini Vinyards. Other wine venues and restaurants are paid at the time we visit them. Each winery has their own policy about how the tasting fees may be applied to any purchases, please inquire with that specific venue for details.
We will be staying at Comfort Inn and Suits in McMinnville for our two-night stay.
This year's wine tour launches from BMW NW in Fife.
We will drive on scenic back country roads as we make our way through Astoria Oregon and into the beautiful Willamette Valley, home to 500 wineries in the picturesque valley known for its world class pinot Noir and farm to fork ethos.
June 4th- We will meet at 0700 at BMW NW in Fife before the tour. After a group meeting, we will plan to leave by 0800. We are starting early to make our fabulous lunch destination at Bridge Water Bistro located in Astoria Oregon.
