While some private tours are on the books, no publicly available tours are currently scheduled.

I strongly encourage visiting our many excellent wineries in Southwest Washington within the soon-to-be Mt. Saint Helens AVA. For those of you residing in NW Oregon, our SW Washington wineries offer incredibly diverse wines and tasting experiences ranging from urban/waterfront chique, to rural, boutique, family-owned estates. I would be happy to consult on an itinerary based on your tastes and interests. Don’t be afraid to get out of the Willamette and try some new stuff. Just a few minutes drive north from Portland, SW Washington is your bridge to great wine!

Feel free to check back, or contact me directly if you are interested in scheduling a class, winery visit, or being notified of an upcoming event. Information and reservations for scheduled private tours may be listed on hosting web and social media sites. Please contact your host directly for more information
