It's no surprise that people love to celebrate Oregon Wine Month. Our state boasts some truly amazing wineries, not to mention Wine Spectator's Wine Region of the Year in 2016, making it a prime place to do some tasting. Wesleigh Ogle from KATU News out of Portland made a quick trip to Pete's Mountain Vineyard and Winery in West Linn to experience a bit of the magic for herself.
Wesleigh was lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the rose' that Pete's Mountain is debuting this Sunday. The next door neighbors, Campbell Lane Winery, also came over and shared a few of their varieties as well. Campbell Lane boasts the longest history on Pete's Mountain, as the first grapes were planted there in 1983.
Wesleigh also learned about the Mt. Hood Territory Wine Trail. The free mobile passport, which you download to your phone, grants discounts at the 16 participating wineries. And if you redeem discounts at 8 of the wineries, you earn a free stainless steel Mt. Hood Territory wine tumbler.
We were glad to spend the time with Wesleigh, who really seemed to enjoy the winery. Maybe that's why we think she's so awesome, but either way, it was a great way to spend a morning. While Oregon Wine Month goes through May, you can download the Mt. Hood Territory Wine Trail mobile passport and get discounts for a year. Watch the videos below or here, here, and here, and then download the mobile passport to start your wine tasting adventure. Be sure to look for alternative transportation as well, and book a hotel to extend the stay.
