North Willamette Valley, Ore. (February, 28 2017) — The annual North Willamette Vintners Wine Trail returns for its 9th year. This self-guided, wine-tasting event offers attendees rich and diverse experiences accompanied by food and wine pairings. The event takes place April 8-9, 2017.
Tickets are $60 for a weekend ticket, $40 for a single day pass, $20 for a designate driver pass. Early-bird purchasers save $5 ($55 weekend pass, $35 single day pass) while also receiving four bonus complimentary tastings universally accepted by North Willamette Valley member wineries for future use.

Lovers of Oregon wine will partake in truly unique and informative experiences.

Ticketed participants will receive a custom-printed wine glass to keep and a lanyard, both of which serve as the entry ticket into participating wineries. Upon completing each activity, attendees receive a unique button associated with that winery activity.
To ensure safe and sober passage between wineries, North Willamette Vintners offers a designated driver ticket for $20.
