Valentine’s Wine Tasting Loop

Oregon winesDana and Nick Blizzard of Blizzard Wines

Cupid is going wild in the Tualatin Valley, shooting his arrows at every winery he sees. Whether you’re single or happily attached, there are lots of ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day with us, including events touting a Valentine’s Wine Loop, chocolates, and romantic touches of St. Valentine.

The 8th Annual Valentine’s Wine Tasting Loop is an open house with a lucky baker’s dozen of amazing tasting rooms in the northern Willamette Valley. You have three whole days, February 8-10, to travel between each winery and its special holiday tastings and activities. We’re not relying on Pinot as our sole love potion for the weekend. Your tastings come with extra perks at each location, ranging from chocolate treats to hands-on DIY projects for you to take home.

Each participating winery will also offer a stamp for visiting its tasting room—collect four stamps and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a swanky gift basket.

Valentine’s Wine Tasting Loop Participants:

Please check each winery’s listing for specific hours and tasting fees.

Additionally, you can collect stamps at two non-winery locales. Stoneberg Alpacas’ boutique is stocked with the coziest winter wears: socks, scarves and sweaters all knitted with luxurious alpaca fibers. You can even purchase a bag of grain to feed to the farm’s herd of alpacas. Nearby, the Cruise In Country Diner will also be offering stamps at its 1950s-style eatery. Share a strawberry milkshake with two straws for a romantic treat.

Share your experience on the loop with the hashtag #vdaywineloop. We’ll be sharing a few of our favorite snaps from the weekend.

With several romance hotel packages to choose from, the Tualatin Valley truly is for lovers.


  • It just popped up on my Facebook Wish I had heard of it sooner would have gone there instead of New York

  • Hi, Sandy! Yes, all of these events are suitable for singles. Feel free to come with friends or on a solo-date. Either way, it’ll be a wonderful time.

  • Thanks for the input. However, I’m a senior who looks for artistic view-points (for setting up easels). I live in Kennewick, Wash. so close enough for an overniter. Coming from another wine based country, I love the fields of grape for painting ideas.
    My husband does not travel, so I go on short trips where I can do my thing. I appreciate any information you can give me for that type of thing.
    Have a wonderful Valentines Day event.
    Thanks, Nancy Parks

  • Yes, there is a map! Each winery will have the maps waiting for visitors to their tasting rooms this weekend. I will email you a PDF of the map right now, as well!
