Thanksgiving weekend is a very exciting time for Oregon wine lovers. Each year, wineries and vineyards all over the region will open their doors to the public for special tastings and festivities. We are best known for our Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc. This holiday weekend is a wonderful time to experience the many flavors and delight Oregon wine has to offer from more than 160 wineries and tasting rooms. To get the most out of your weekend, we recommend that you do a bit of homework first. Research wineries, explore wine regions and download maps from the Oregon Wine Explorer and check out this guide to local wineries from Washington County Visitors Association (WCVA).
