Handcrafted in style, they strive to produce wines of great balance and complexity so each individual vineyard is able to express its true nature and unique character. Vintage after vintage, they are delighted to taste the delicate nuances each seasonal combination of summer sun and cool coastal breezes brings forth in their bountiful harvests.

April 23rd – Willamette Valley Vineyards Wine Tasting 5 p.m.-6 p.m.

Willamette Valley Vineyards was founded in 1983 by Oregon native, Jim Bernau, with the dream of creating world-class Pinot Noir.

All the vineyards, the Estate Vineyard, Tualatin Estate, and Elton vineyard, have been certified sustainable through LIVE (Low Input Viticulture and Enology) and Salmon Safe programs since 1997.
