Would you like to learn more about sustainability in Oregon’s wine industry? We have arranged a onetime tour of the Carbon Neutral Challenge Wine Tour Route. While the route has been designed for you, this is your opportunity to have us guide you along the route. We have taken care of all of the details, arranging you hotel, tastings, specialized tours at the wineries and lunch. You will get additional information about the wineries experiences with the Carbon Neutral Challenge from staff at the winery. Several of the visits will also include tours of the wineries, discussions with the winemakers, and more in-depth discussions about sustainability in the Oregon wine industry that you would not get on the self-guided tour. The tour price covers a hotel room for two, all tasting and tour fees, lunch, and a few other treats.
The first tour is our Salem wine tour on April 16th. The day will start with a tour of Left Coast Cellars with winemaker Luke McCollum. Then on to a private tasting at Mahonia, who is normally closed to the public. We will finish with a tasting and tour at Willamette Valley Vineyards. Guests will be staying at the Grand Hotel in Salem. The cost per couple is $335.
The second tour is scheduled for April 23rd and is the first Carbon Neutral Challenge Route in Newberg. We will be visiting Adelsheim, Soter, Lemelson, and tour of Stoller’s Gold LEED certified winery.
The final Carbon Neutral Challenge tour is April 30th. We will finish by visiting the four remaining wineries in Newberg, including a tour at Sokol Blosser, and tastings at Winderlea, Chehalem, and Rex Hill. Our normal tour route features the Chehalem tasting room, we will be visiting the winery for this special tasting.
For both of the Newberg tours, guests will be staying at The Allison Inn & Spa. Both of these days will begin with a tour of some of the features that make The Allison unique. The cost per couple is $600 per day.
