Celebrate Oregon Wine Month in Tualatin Valley
Join us this May in celebrating our official statewide month of wine discovery and development. As the home of some of the oldest vines in the Willamette Valley, Tualatin Valley is the ideal location for your Oregon Wine Month adventure.
We invite you to celebrate Oregon Wine Month in Tualatin Valley this May. Sit back and enjoy the views and and try our world-class wines with a visit to wine country.
Spring is a great time to visit wine country. Not only can you enjoy the great outdoors on many sprawling vineyard patios or lawns, you can mix it up with the light flavors or white wines and rosé. Explore wineries with garden views like Alloro Vineyard and Blakeslee Vineyard and play the best lawn games like bocce ball at Apolloni Vineyards.
This year, instead of the usual Memorial Day Wine Weekend events in the final weekend of May, festivities are being expanded throughout the month. It’s the season of new growth and sunshine in Oregon’s wine country. Learn more about May in wine country >>>
