Wednesday, a.k.a. “Hump Day” has gotten a bad rap in the past few years. We think Wednesdays deserve more credit, especially if you’re in Downtown Salem, Oregon on “Wine Wednesday”!
On the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month, guests 21 and better have the opportunity to taste and enjoy some of the newest and best wines from our featured local winery from 5 p.m.-6 p.m.!
This is event is the perfect chance to familiarize yourself with our esteemed local producers and see why Willamette Valley is known by many as a premier wine destination. Special food pairings and happy hour options will also be available for purchase before, during or after the tasting.
We hope you’re able to stop by and enjoy a complimentary tasting from one (or all) of these featured Oregon wineries:
