May is Oregon Wine Month, a full month of special tastings and unique events celebrating what makes Oregon wine so special. As spring arrives, it's a wonderful time to follow the South Willamette Wine Trail as the valley bursts into color.
Memorial Day weekend kicks off the summer season with winery open houses and festivities. All summer enjoy wine tasting, outdoor concerts and dining specials at the wineries. Special releases are rolled out, pizza ovens are fired up, and live music fills the valley. In July, Eugene's Art and the Vineyard is a beloved signature event featuring regional wine tasting.
The Territorial Thanksgiving Wine Trail in November ushers in the holiday season. Many of the wineries hold open houses with complimentary appetizers, tastings or discounts over the weekend. It's a great time to collect some new favorite wines for holiday gift giving and holiday dinner pairings.
