Willamette Valley wineries are known for two things: Great wine, and an incredible community.

We are lucky, in that, with all the chaos that’s happening in the world right now, great wine and an incredible community are exactly what we all need. To share that spirit with all of you, we created #WVCommunity in March 2020.

Throughout the tumultuous year we highlighted words of wisdom from our winemakers, Spotify playlists, recipes, and virtual events. We debuted May Theme Weeks, where we featured 50 special wines on a theme for purchase every week as part of Memorial Weekend from Wine Country. And we hope in 2021 and beyond, as our world slowly recovers, these dispatches from Willamette Valley wine country make you smile.

As our wineries safely reopen, be sure to check out our reopening guide to see the list of currently open tasting rooms and learn what to expect.
