Are you a fan of Oregon wine? If so, you probably may have heard that May is Oregon Wine Month! Did you know that Oregon is home to more than 450 wineries and Oregon Wine is a $3 billion industry? That’s cause for celebration!
Oregon Wine Month was established by Gov. John Kitzhaber in 2012 to celebrate and support the growing community of Oregon winemakers. Throughout May, many of Oregon’s wineries will have special promotions, activities and tastings to celebrate.
More than 150 wineries and tasting rooms will open their doors to the public May 23-25, 2014 for special tastings, food, entertainment, tours and more.

At Bentley’s Grill, we treat every month like Oregon Wine month! Willamette Valley wines have developed a reputation of being among the finest in the world, and many of it’s acclaimed wineries are right here in our own backyard! Every second and fourth Wednesday, we feature a local winery from 5 p.m.-6 p.m. Our featured wineries this month are:
May 14th – Eola Hills Wine Cellars
May 28th – Trinity Vineyards
This is a wonderful opportunity for our guests to enjoy wine from some of the best winemakers in our region. Special food pairings and happy hour options will also be available for purchase during the tasting.
Be sure to celebrate Oregon Wine Month by visiting your favorite winery, and purchasing Oregon wine at participating restaurants and retail locations.
