The last Portland Oregon wine-tasting tour we told you about was so popular, we were thrilled to find out about this new half off wine tasting deal that includes a trip to the Columbia Gorge, one of our favorite side trips. This is a six-hour naturalist-led tour. Meet in Portland and let EverGreen Escapes do the rest.
“Embarking from downtown Portland in a bio-diesel-fueled luxury Mercedes van, you’ll travel along the Columbia River to the Columbia Gorge Scenic Area, home to 70 different waterfalls and abundant opportunities for splashing, hiking and snapping photos. From there, it’s just a short journey to the town of Hood River and its many surrounding boutique wineries. As you sample some of the region’s famous Pinot Noirs, Pinot Gris and many other varietals, your naturalist guide will explain how this region’s unique climate, landscape and geologic history help give Oregon wines their unique qualities.”
