It’s May, and you know what that means? It’s Oregon Wine Month! Nearly 700 wineries throughout Oregon are celebrating our outstanding wine right now!
“Some of the world’s finest wines are made right here in Oregon,” said David Beck, chairman of the Oregon Wine Board, which manages the month-long promotion. “Oregon Wine Month is an opportunity for wine enthusiasts in Oregon and beyond to experience the diversity and quality of Oregon wine.”
This year’s Oregon Wine Month campaign will celebrate Oregon winemakers who celebrate the earth – those who have a particular dedication to environmental stewardship, to growing grapes that best express the soils and to preserving the land for future generations of winegrape farmers. With 45% of Oregon vineyards certified sustainable and many more farming this way, Oregon has more certified sustainable acres than any other winegrowing region in the U.S.
We don’t mean to brag, but our extensive Oregon Wine list and our commitment to celebrating and promoting local wineries have been recognized by organizations like Wine Spectator, Oregon Wine Press, and The Oregon Wine Board to name a few.
Be sure to join us in The Grand Hotel Salem Lobby every second and fourth Wednesday of the month and taste new wines from our featured local winery from 5 p.m.-6 p.m. 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.
Our featured wineries for upcoming Wednesday Wine Tasting series are as followed. Mark your calendars!
