World Class Wine Tour
Taste handcrafted award-winning wines as you make your way from downtown Eugene to the rolling foothills of the coast range.
Start the morning right with bubbly and breakfast at Noisette Pastry Kitchen in downtown Eugene. This boutique café serves up seasonal, local handmade sweets and savories.
Make a stop at Provisions Market Hall. Peruse the carefully curated selection of wines, and maybe even have a glass at the wine bar, while you shop specialty take home foods, cookbooks, charcuterie and more. Fill your picnic basket here for tasty snacks throughout the day. If you don’t have a picnic basket, as you head north be sure to stop for lunch in Junction City at Camas Country Mill Bakery & Store (closes at 3 p.m.).
Make your way to wine country and spend the day exploring the Prairie Mountain Wineries, six vineyards with extraordinary views within a ten-mile radius.
Take scenic River Road back into town and stop by Groundwork Organics, a 75-year old restored dairy barn and certified organic farm stand (open until 6 p.m., Thurs – Sun).
Wrap up the day with dinner at Marché Restaurant. This destination restaurant serves up French-inspired cuisine with farm fresh ingredients and regional wines that celebrate the bounty of the region.
Want more? Walk to nearby Party Bar for late night food and a night-cap. Think: oysters, craft cocktails and organic burgers – all using local ingredients.
