Oregon Pinot Noir

Oregon Vine2Wine Tours is committed to providing our customers with a unique wine education. We visit small production, terroir driven wineries that do not over manipulate their wines. We feel that the wines you will taste show a sense of place. We walk our groups through basic winemaking, learn about wine faults, discuss wine and food pairings and go over what methods winemakers can use to mask the character of where the grapes come from. There is so much to learn about wine that people are often intimidated. Oregon Vine2Wine feels that once you start learning about wine you will want to learn more. There are several books, movies and websites available to the public. We recommend the following:
