WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN VISITING
(Last updated March 11, 2022)
On February 28, 2022, Oregon Governor Kate Brown announced that the Oregon Health Authority rules requiring masks in indoor public places and schools will be lifted after 11:59 p.m. on March 11, 2022. Other state and federal requirements, such as those for health care settings, public transit, and other specialized settings, will remain in place for a period of time. Read the announcement here.
Some wineries may still require masks after March 12. Bring your mask to wine country regardless of your vaccination status, and check with your destinations before visiting to confirm policies regarding proof of vaccination. See wineries that require proof of vaccination here.

All of us in the Willamette Valley wine community are so grateful for the support of wine lovers near and far throughout the pandemic. We appreciate your patience with our hospitality teams as we readjust and embrace one heck of a tourism reboot. As we train new staff (and unveil our quarantine remodeling projects), your flexibility, your graciousness and most of all your enthusiasm for our wine will be more appreciated than ever. We can't wait to see you in Willamette Valley wine country!
We recommend that all visitors check with their destinations in advance regarding individual business policies for group size, reservations, vaccinations, physical distancing, and venue capacity. And please be kind––staff and supply shortages are a reality for all of us.
