Summer event at St. Josef's Winery

SATURDAY or SUNDAY: Willamette Valley

The Willamette Valley is well-known for producing Pinot noir which you will find alongside some more rare varietals in this itinerary. All of these wineries are open both Saturdays and Sundays, but you might feel a bit rushed if you follow the timeline below to try to make it to all five in one day. Pick the wineries from the itinerary that appeal to you, or get a head start by visiting St. Josef’s Winery and Whiskey Hill Winery during their Friday hours. If you really want to see them all in one day, opt to use your Wine Trail passport for discounts on bottles to go at some of the stops instead, and bring home a tasty souvenir – wines fly free on Alaska Airlines.

12pm - Whiskey Hill Winery

Make your first stop at Whiskey Hill’s rustic chic tasting room nestled at the edge of their vineyard, where you can sample their tasting menu of five rotating wines based on seasonal favorites. Buy one tasting and get the second free with your Wine Trail passport.

Drive time to next stop: 2 min

12:45pm - St. Josef's Winery

Head just down the street to St. Josef’s Winery, where their family has been making wine for over 40 years. Two tasting fees are waived when you purchase two bottles here, so take some time to enjoy the striking architecture and landscaping before choosing a favorite bottle (or two, rather!) to bring home with you.

Drive time to next stop: 15 min

2pm - Wooden Shoe Vineyards

Wooden Shoe is home to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival each spring, but the farm is open year round for wine tasting. Your complimentary Wine Trail tasting includes nine wines and a rich port that they’ve named after the darkest variety of tulip.

Drive time to next stop: 5 min

3:15pm - Hanson Vineyards

Next, stop at Hanson Vineyards’ tasting room located inside their iconic red barn and use the Wine Trail passport for half off your tasting fee. Winemaker Jason is passionate about growing rare varietals (including an orange wine) and creating unique blends. He’ll tell you all about it during your tasting.

Drive time to next stop: 10 min

4:10pm - Alexeli Vineyard and Winery

End the day in the quiet landscaped garden of Alexeli Winery. As you come up the driveway, look to your left and you might be lucky enough to see Alpacas at Marquam Hill Ranch’s adorable herd. Taste your way through Alexeli’s rotating wine menu with a friend, and the Wine Trail will get you two tasting fees waived when you purchase two bottles.
