2018 Wine Tours
No Purse! No Nurse?

These wonderful women know exactly what they want, and they don’t intend to be a purse or nurse for nobody.  With a little rain in the forecast, we spent a beautiful fall day enjoying a cozy fire and some wonderful wine.  Fall is such a beautiful time in the Valley and a great time to share with friends.

Don’t Freeze Your Fish

When our guests end up loving new-to-them wines that they didn’t think they liked, we get so excited for them! And, we as guides, often getting pretty excited to learn from our guests, too. This ladies trip was full of genuine laughter, fish pointers, and overall enjoyment of an awesome day out.

Avocado is a fruit

From the start, these 6 were fast friends before they knew they were friends. Unbeknownst to them, they were staying at the same AirBnB. Confusion of who knows who aside, these guests found silliness, travel, fall sunshine, and wine as common denominators.

Fall into Wine

Today’s guests enjoyed a beautiful fall day in the Willamette Valley.  With wonderful shades of red, green, yellow, and orange, the Valley is bursting with personality.  At this time of year,  many wineries are updating their flights which allows visitors to also try something new.  Overall, today was a good day, and a beautiful place to spend a fall day.

Honeymoon Happiness

This charming couple from South Korea is visiting us for their honeymoon!  Marriage just two days ago, they were ready to see America and what the Northwest has to offer.  With plenty of beautiful weather and wonderful wines, today was a great way to begin making new memories together.  Click the collage below for the entire photo album.  

 

Clowns In A Car

Remember the circus and how many clowns came out of one car?  This is how our third stop described a bolder Pinot Noir on the flight which was partially fermented whole cluster.  Today's tour was an insightful day full of wonderful new friends.  Friends that enjoy clowns just as much as me!  Click the collage for the entire photo album. 

Rule Followers

Fun in the sun on this gorgeous fall day! First-time visitors to Oregon and wine country was on the spreadsheet of choices. Good trip planners know how to find special experiences and when they do, they follow the rules. Well, most of the rules! Click the collage for the entire photo album. 

Seduced not Subducted

Historical context often plays a role in the description of what makes the Oregon wine industry so unique. From hippopotamus teeth that George Washington’s stoic face never showed to lucky little leprechauns building a small park. This tour group was on-point with additive stories that will forever be in our tour guide repertoire. Click the collage for the entire photo album.

Beautiful Days and Beautiful People

Today was 71 and sunny.....and the Valley was gorgeous.  Along with three wonderful wineries, a lovely lunch, and some beautiful views, these strangers discovered the joy of meeting new people and making new friends.  Just as wine is meant to tell a story of a place and time, so are these tours.  Thanks for letting us be part of your story for years to come.  Click the collage for the entire photo album.
