Here in Eugene we are so lucky to have some fabulous wineries nearby. It is just a short drive to some fantastic wine! Each June, the Southern Willamette Wineries Association hosts a Barrel Tour with three amazing routes: Urban, Northern, and Southern. Each route features 5 wineries, and will have real barrel tastings. This is an event that you cannot miss!
All of these wineries are a close driving distance, but let their deluxe charter bus provided do all the work so you can sit back and relax. Soak in the beautiful views, taste some fabulous food, and of course, sip on some delicious wine. Check out the amazing line up for this year:
June 6th – Urban Tour
Eugene Wine Cellars
J.Scott Cellars/Noble Estate Winery
Oregon Wine Lab
Territorial Vineyards and Wine Company
June 13th – Northern Tour
Bennett Vineyards & Wine Company
Brigadoon Wine Company
High Pass Winery
June 20th – Southern Tour
Domaine Meriwether Winery
Silvan Ridge Winery
Picking just one of these routes would be hard, so why not check them all out? What a great opportunity to try the wide variety of wines that are being produced right here in the Southern Willamette Valley. Each of these producers have their own unique style, and I cannot wait to get my hands on some of their new releases.
It may seem like June is far off – but it’ll be sneaking up on us in no time! Tickets are available online at the Southern Willamette Wineries Association site. For more information contact: [email protected]
