The last year (or two) have been a doozy so we’re taking a time machine back to some pre-covid times and walking down memory (and sensory) lane! Join us this Memorial Weekend for a throwback library tasting.  We’ll be pouring a special flight of library wines selected from the depths of our cellar. Limited bottles will be available for purchase this weekend, and in person only, so mark your calendar and be sure to make your reservation in advance: 503-843-3100. Tasting fee $35/person ($15 for Wine Club) will include curated cheese pairings for each of the wines.

Pinot Paddle 2022

With Yamhill Valley Vineyards on the river between Salem and St Paul
June 18-19, 2022
Event Link

The Willamette Valley, Oregon’s largest wine region, brings the perfect balance of temperature, humidity, soil and river recreation.  We are excited to announce that Willamette Riverkeeper will hold its 3rd Annual Pinot Paddle the weekend of June 18 – 19, 2022! Experience a weekend of world-class wines and a celebrated National Water Trail.

While Pinot Noir is the Valley’s leading varietal, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and some 75 other varietals are also worthy of attention. Location is the key ingredient with wine, which is also true when it comes to selecting your paddling route and camping spot. We’ve combined the best of both worlds with a weekend itinerary completely unique to our own Willamette Valley AVA which includes:

  • Two days of scenic paddling
  • Wine tasting from local vineyards featuring pleasing Pinots and other varieties
  • A conversation with the wine makers
  • Delicious catered meals from Renegade Mobile Kitchen paired with wines from throughout the Valley
  • Spacious camping along a quiet back channel
  • An abundance of information on the Willamette River’s history and ecology
