Thanksgiving Weekend Wine Tasting in Mt. Hood Territory

Wine tasting at Petes Mountain Winery around their wine barrel warming fire

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.

With tasting rooms in each of The Territory’s regions it will be easy to add wine tasting to your family’s list of yearly Thanksgiving traditions. Be sure to come enjoy these amazing wineries throughout the year too and utilize the Mt. Hood Territory Wine Trail to get great discounts while you are there. It's a free mobile passport guiding you along a trail of wineries, offering great discounts at each stop, so it's a win win. Click the icons on the map to find the one nearest where you are staying and playing.

If your trip brings you here in December you can't miss the Christmas Ship Parades on the Willamette River. Check their schedule and mark your calendar for viewing evenings in Milwaukie, Lake Oswego or aboard the Willamette Shore Trolley for a front row seat! If you have kiddos they would love a stop at the Wenzel Farm Fantasy Christmas Trail in Oregon City. With thousands of twinkle lights and miniature jolly and bright holiday scenes right at eye level its such a unique memory to make together.
