The leaves are falling and the season changing in Oregon’s Mt. Hood Territory. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and many families have traditions they look forward to every year, like making recipes passed down from grandma or touch football in the front yard. Whether you are home for the holiday weekend to spend time with relatives or are taking part in a Friendsgiving, many of you will be looking for fun places to check out during the three day weekend that follows.
In Mt. Hood Territory, the wineries have their own yearly tradition of extending their tasting room hours during the Thanksgiving weekend. So, after recuperating from the best meal of the year, grab your relatives and friends and head to one (or many) of the wineries all across Mt. Hood Territory.
Some have amazing views, most have heat lamps to keep you warm and cozy, and all have incredible wines to tantalize any taste bud. With the wineries extended tasting room hours you’ll have extra time to discover a new favorite wine or winery and maybe even get some early gifts for the December holidays.
