Can driving be like wine tasting? Let’s see…

This year’s Wine Country Tour is an explosion of driving pleasure! Our tour is carefully selected and fermented using only the finest roads and most verdant countryside. Savor the soft round curves as you dance through rolling hills, lapping up the miles and smiles. Glide past stunning vineyards as rich aromatics indundate your senses. Aromas of chocolate and sage linger in the morning mist, swirling past your trusty steed. Earth tones including mushroom and pepper waft through your open windows. They underscore the complex high notes of pear, apple, and pomegranate decanted by the warming of the morning sun. Join us for this year’s tour!

Wind your way up sweeping Olsen Road out of Gaston to Kramer Vineyards. We so loved having brunch at this charming family vineyard last year we’re doing it again this year! We’ll enjoy Kramer’s broad variety of red and white wines, as well as their award-winning sparkling wines. Meg’s savory quiches and fruit were a big hit, and she’s graciously agreed to treat us again.

 

Tour part 1 / Kramer Vineyards to Hazelfern Cellars                                          

22.2 miles / approx. 45 min        

Depart Kramer and enjoy the bucolic scenery and big curves on Spring Hill Road out of Gaston to Albertson Rd, which was recently paved. Pull your seat up and grip the wheel for a fun hillclimb up Chehalem Mountain. Head east on twisty Bald Peak Road to Mountain Top Road. Your passenger will enjoy huge views of the Chehalem Valley below and North Willamette Valley beyond. But driver, keep your eyes on those twisties – they bubble up quickly! Descend the mountain using Bell Road to Hazelfern Cellars.

Bryan and Laura Laing are relatively new to wine making, and bought their first fruit from the Kramer family. Their unique story unfolds as you absorb the beautiful environs and buildings of their farm vineyards just north of Newberg. A truly charming family, they also make lovely pinots and chards. Not open to the public, they’re excited to host our group and offer us a very unique glimpse into what it’s like to “live the dream”.

 

Tour part 2 / Hazelfern Cellars to Pete’s Mountain Vineyard                       

22.7 miles / approx. 45 min

Depart Hazelfern and head east on Bell Road, and enjoy some more twisties as you make your way through the hills, connecting to Wilsonville Rd. This scenic drive is our Red Blend of the day: farmland, vineyards, long straights, sweepers, and twisties all blended into a sumptuous treat you can enjoy any time.

Upon arrival at Pete’s Mountain, park as directed for the Big Photo Op. Every year multiple directors frenetically yet aesthetically arrange our cars into a pose for a group photo. Somehow this Organized Chaos coalesces into a memorable photo or two.

With commanding views of the North Willamette Valley and the Cascades in the distance, Pete’s Mountain is truly a special spot. Named after the tireless efforts of a French emigrant in the 1850’s, todays vineyard has been producing award winning wines since 1999. We’ve arranged to enjoy a private catered picnic lunch on the grounds along with tasting PM’s delicious wine offerings.

This year’s tour is an intoxicating blend of three vineyards and some amazing roads sure to please your viticultural and automotive palates. Join us to see if driving can be like wine tasting!
