Cost: $179 per person, all-inclusive (our competitors average $159 with no tasting fees paid)
Semi-Private Tours: Parties of one, two or three may be combined with other guests...but don't forget, our tours are limited to six people! Still don't want to share your space? No problem. For parties of two or three, simply choose one additional guest and name that guest Private when making your reservation online.
Note: We have a two person minimum for each tour.
Why Choose Us?: This is no ordinary wine tour! Your guide will be a WSET Certified Personal Sommelier who knows, loves and appreciates the wine country and who will be with you as your personal guide inside the tasting rooms and out in the vineyards. This is an intimate look at the wine country as our personal guest and to learn more about these amazing wines and how they compare to wines around the world.

We maintain a fleet of Honda Odyssey vans which seat six (and maybe seven) average size adults comfortably. This is truly a personal wine country experience. We have been visiting the wine country for more than 20 years and each tour is curated based on quality, price, and expression of terroir. This is not your average wine tour. We are a "wine class on wheels" with transportation included and not a company that provides transportation only by someone in a dark suit.
The tour typically departs around 9:00 am from Portland area hotels with our first wine tasting at 10:00 am. From April to October we work in conjunction with Vista Balloons as the exclusive wine tour company and will pick up from the Newberg Sportsman Airpark after your champagne brunch if you participate in our hot air balloon package. Otherwise, we provide door to door transportation all year long from Portland area hotels, B&B's and other rental units. Book your wine tour and transportation early to ensure your space.
- Door to door transportation from your hotel or a central location to the vineyards

Hot Air Balloon Participants:
We provide transportation to and from the Newberg Airpark to the vineyards. The balloon experience begins before dawn so you are responsible for transportation to the Airpark; however, we are happy to provide transportation from the Airpark back to your Portland area hotel or a central location.
Also, non-drinkers are welcome to join this tour for $129 each.
Tours are also available in the Columbia Valley Gorge (just East of Portland) as well as Urban Wineries! While the Willamette Valley specializes in Pinot Noir with rolling hills reminiscent of Burgundy, the Gorge features various Bordeaux red varietals and sweeping vistas of the Columbia River.

Our philosophy is simple......we help you get personal about wine!
