THE HOME THAT WINE COUNTRY BUILT

As part of our efforts to support the larger community that comprises Oregon wine country, in 2021 the Willamette Valley Wineries Association raised $100,000 to fund the build of a new home for a local family in partnership with the McMinnville affiliate of Habitat for Humanity. It’s wine country's first ever Winery Build. Learn more… 


THE GIVING SEASON

Between the breathless rush of harvest and the calm of Cellar Season, we welcome the festive energy of the holidays—and with them a chance to step back, appreciate the beauty and camaraderie around us, and give back to the communities we call home.

The Giving Season combines Wine Country Thanksgiving, Willamette Cares Food Share, and the holidays. Our wineries and wine country businesses each select a special gift for you, to show our appreciation for Willamette Valley wine lovers everywhere. Learn more… 


CELEBRATING HISPANIC ROOTS

The Willamette Valley Wineries Association is proud to sponsor Celebrating Hispanic Roots, formed by a small group of Oregon winery owners and winemakers who share a Hispanic background and have come together to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15th to October 15th, 2021 in order to share their stories, display the diversity of the Hispanic cultures which span most of Latin America and Spain, and as small business owners give back to the Spanish-speaking community in Oregon. Ten percent of ticket and bottle sales was donated to Adelante Mujeres Empresas Small Business Development Program that teaches and supports small business owners to create a vibrant local economy and open up opportunities for all individuals to pursue their dreams.
