Private Tour Options
When you book a private tour, your options include length of day, number of wineries and type of experiences you’d like to have. For the optimal day, we’ve found customers enjoy relaxed visits to two or three wineries. Here are our most popular options:
Our Mini-Scape is a great way to get a flavor of Oregon’s wine country, without dedicating a full day to the experience. For these tours, we slow down a bit to spend more time at each winery for a leisurely pace. You’ll be hosted by one of our guides, visit and taste at two nearby wineries, and enjoy food matched to wines along the way.
Our most popular tour, this is the choice when you want to take a leisurely morning, but still catch the best part of a wine country day. Our guide will host your day, transporting you into wine country along scenic roads. You’ll visit and taste at three wineries hand picked for you. We’ll also provide food pairings along the way. Yum!
If you have a bit more time and want a more in-depth look at our wine country, consider our full day escape. We’ll take you deeper into wine country, and if of interest, include a behind the scenes tour. You’ll be hosted by one of our guides and as Oregon wines are so nice with food, we’ll provide food pairings including a sit down lunch at one of the wineries we’ll be visiting. Cheers.
The Dinner Escape complements your wine country outing with an elegant dinner at the end of your touring day. It’s perfect for a special occasion or a wonderful respite from the workday world. We’ll start the day visiting one of the area wineries, then end with dinner matched to wine at a winery or a fine wine country restaurant. Add another winery to the day if you’d like. Selections vary by day and season but often include local salmon or pork loin as the main dish, as they match well to Oregon wines.
