Oregon Wine Festivals
Want to get out and taste great wines in the great
state of Oregon? Then look for a a Oregon Wine Festival! These wine
events are a perfect way to fill a sunny Saturday or Sunday afternoon.
Local Oregon wineries set up booths and dispense their special wines
for you to taste and buy. It's a great way to sample a wide variety
of wines in one fun-filled place. Oregon has several wonderful wine
and food festivals scheduled every year for locals and visitors
to enjoy. At most festivals you can expect to pay a nominal entrance
fee that then allows you to sample all the wines offered at the
event. Others sell tasting tickets that you can use at your tasting
discretion. Located in and around cities like Portland, Gresham, La Grande
and Baker City, there are wine festivals that bring you the best samplings
of OR wines. Many specialize in fine OR wines as well as national
and international wines. At every booth you can expect to find helpful
and friendly wine experts eager to answer your questions.
At festivals like Astoria Warrenton Crab, Seafood
& Wine Festival in April, Northwest Food & Wine Festival
in Portland in November, or Newport Seafood & Wine Festival
in February, you may find wines from Stella Fino, Helvetia Vineyards,
Noble Estate Vineyard & Winery, Grizzly Peak Winery, and many
others at Oregon wine festivals. In addition to wine, these events
can include excellent food to sample, prepared by local restaurants
and chefs. And often you can expect music too. After all, nothing
pairs better with wine than a little Jazz, or Blue Grass music.
Local musicians are out playing their best music to accompany the
wine tasting. Whether you're visiting Eugene, Coos Bay, Ontario
and Burns you can find a local wine, food and music festival that
will perfect your OR vacation. The most popular time of year for
these festivals are the Fall and Summer months, but they are also
scheduled during holiday months as well. Imagine sipping some great
wines while watching the annual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony!
So although, you may not have time to visit all of Oregon's
great wineries, you can taste their wines at these great events.
So get out and enjoy! As always, Wine Bar Wineries is here to help
you find exciting wine, food and music festivals near you.
