May In Wine Country
Willamette Valley In Bloom
Springtime in wine country is cause for celebration! During the months of April, May and June, the Willamette Valley is "in bloom" with brilliant gardens, budding vines and clear skies.
At the center of it all is our long-running Memorial Weekend in Wine Country event, virtual for the first time in 2020 and expanded to include the entire month of May in 2021. With this much-loved tradition, our wineries open their doors to welcome the return of vibrant colors to our landscape and the first chapter in the story of the next vintage. We also kick off the summer tourism season, basking in dry, warm, sunny weather that brings everyone outside. This is the time for exciting new white wine and rosé releases, soft buds emerging on the vines, the scent of flowers everywhere and the joy that comes with a fresh start. Check out our participating wineries' special events and offers, browse wineries with garden views and lawn games to make the most of the sunshine, and use our Memorial Weekend Map (coming soon!) to plan your trip. Finally, be sure to check out our reopening guide to see the latest public health guidance and a county-by-county list of open wineries and COVID-19 restrictions.
MAY IS OREGON WINE MONTH
We celebrate Willamette Valley wine all year round, but especially during Oregon Wine Month, when the entire state joins in commemoration of our beloved industry for the month of May, offering special activities and promotions for the enjoyment of Oregon wine. More details on Oregon Wine Month retail and restaurant promotions are coming soon!
