Collaborative Oregon Wine Month Events
Yamhill-Carlton AVA Spring Tasting
Please join the Yamhill-Carlton AVA for our 8th annual Spring Tasting Event at the always-spectacular Anne Amie Vineyards for an opportunity to speak directly with winemakers and proprietors from more than 30 of the region’s best producers.
I Love Gamay
I Love Gamay is a first of its kind event that brings together adventurous wine lovers and Oregon Gamay producers for a great excuse to throw a party celebrating our favorite under-the-radar varietal.
Elder Hall plays host to two days of events that lets you get to know Oregon Gamay, including an all Oregon Gamay tasting salon on day one and a multi-course dinner featuring legendary Portland chefs, Jason French and Cathy Whims with some storied local wine veterans on day two. Local producers and wine experts will be on hand to offer up their knowledge on this lesser known gem. Yes, Oregon Pinot noir has earned its place in wine history, but we want to blow the lid off Oregon’s other noir rouge grape.
McMinnville Foothills Winegrowers Tasting
During Oregon Wine Month the McMinnville AVA will be joining forces with Hotel Vintage to present a rare tasting opportunity.
Country meets city, winemaker meets hospitality experts and you get to taste all the McMinnville AVA has to offer in the lavish and recently remodeled hotel. Delicious bites will be catered by the stellar team at Vintage, and wine tastings will be provided by representatives of the vineyards and wineries located in the beautiful American Viticultural Area of McMinnville.

Walla Walla Valley
Walla Walla Valley Spring Release Weekend
During Spring Release Weekend visitors can be among the first to enjoy newly released wines, many of which can only be found by visiting the wineries and tasting rooms themselves. It’s a fantastic opportunity to talk directly with Walla Walla Valley winemakers about the new vintage, and gain insight into the creative winemaking process. In addition to sampling and purchasing newly released wines, many wineries will offer special activities such as winemaker dinners, live music, and much more.
