Thanksgiving Wine Weekend
November 26-28, 2021
Thanksgiving Wine Weekend is a long-standing tradition in Tualatin Valley and the greater Willamette Valley. This festive weekend features open houses at select Tualatin Valley’s wineries for a weekend of special tastings, new wine releases, special pairings, and more.
Thanksgiving will look a little different this year than it has in past years, as many wineries require reservations and have limited seating. Book early to ensure your spot at these wineries, which will open their doors for a weekend of holiday celebration. All wineries are closed on Thanksgiving Day. Please check individual websites for reservations, fees and other information.
