Tour Information

Our Goal is to help you feel comfortable in the tasting rooms. To inform you about Oregon, Oregon’s Wine History and wines in general.

To have a great time, and taste some great wines.  We want to provide you with an exceptional experience.  I want to share our passion of wine with you and to provide a personal experience in wine country that you can’t get from anyone else.  We focus on small groups from 2 – 6 people.  I can do 7-10 people with advance notice.  If we keep our numbers small, we make sure to keep our quality high.

Hours: Tours are generally from 10am – 6pm unless you request otherwise.  We operate seven days a week – Year round.

Lunch can be arranged at a winery (picnic style) during the day or we can stop at one of many excellent restaurants. We can supply picnic lunches or you can bring your own.  We can suggest a restaurant or you can choose.  We are here to assist you in all details.  Obviously in the winter months and late summer (due to yellow jackets) we will suggest the best restaurants for you.

Service Area is the Northern Willamette Valley from Portland to Salem, and the Hood River Valley.

For a slight additional fee we can also provide tours in the Corvallis area.

We love to listen to music, stop for pictures and tell jokes so please relax and enjoy the day.  ~ Allow us to do whatever we can to make your experience one that you will remember fondly for years and years to come.  It’s a relaxed pace with non-stuffy wine lovers showing you our favorite places.  No gimmicks, commissions or kick backs from the wineries.

Honest.  Sincere.  Knowledgeable.  Respected.  Fun.

Since 2004, Oregon Wine Tours has specialized in intimate group tours with an insiders knowledge and experience.
