Guided Oregon Wine Tours

Published: December 23, 2022

 

Over a dozen South Willamette Valley wineries invite visitors to taste their wines and tour their winemaking operations. Most local wineries are within twenty miles of Eugene - Springfield, and even on the busiest summer days the region has lighter traffic than many other wine tasting destinations.

Local guides and chauffeurs offer group, private and customized tours. Your wine guides can also share local lore and show you historical attractions from pioneer trailheads to covered bridges to movie film sites. Typically, you will select two to four wineries to visit for thirty minutes to forty minutes each. Ask your guide whether tasting fees are included or additional. 

Many of the wineries offer cheese boards, wood fired pizza or other small plates; host food trucks onsite; or permit a picnic lunch brought in. Your guide should be able to assist you with meal planning. And remember, even though you have a sober driver, please show courtesy to your guide, the winery proprietors and other wine tasting guests by consuming alcohol responsibly. Most of the South Willamette Valley wineries are small, intimate venues operated by families with estate vineyards.
