Innkeepers of the Willamette Valley share their choices for Thanksgiving Weekend Willamette Valley Wine Tastings.
One great aspect of the Thanksgiving weekend open houses is the opportunity to visit wineries that are usually only open by appointment. Add to that the opportunity to Shop Small on Black Friday or Small Business Saturday and Sunday, and you have an adventure that supports the community. The innkeepers in the Willamette Valley share some of their favorite choices to visit throughout the valley.
Some wineries are participating in the Willamette Cares Food Share in partnership with the Oregon Food Bank Network. Each winery decides how to participate in raising funds or collecting food for the Food Bank. (https://willamettewines.com/w
