Day Tripper - WV Wine Country Thanksgiving

Black Friday’s straight dangerous, it’s too early to start baking for Christmas, the in-laws are here for three more days, and you’ve run out of ways to entertain them?
This weekend, the Willamette Valley Wineries Association gears up for the 29th annual Wine Country Thanksgiving event. Over 160 WV wineries open their doors for you and yours with hors d’oeuvres and pairings, winemaker meet and greets, live music, case discounts, and great deals on your next holiday or gift wines. Some tasting fees do apply and range from $5 - $30.
The event is made even more accessible via the launch the new Willamette Valley Mobile Wine Tour application for smart phone users. The application is your complete guide to the Willamette Valley whether you’re searching for winery hours, specific varietals, or wineries that are just plain nearby, so shake out of that tryptophan coma nap at some point this weekend and take a drive. Plan your trek through the valley by scanning the QR code below with your smarty-pants phone and get to tasting!
{if you don’t have a smarty-pants phone, I bet there’s some Black Friday, 3am deal you can score before the big weekend}
Looking for something a little more north? Some of the WV wineries will be pouring in the downtown PDX area and are noted in the Thanksgiving Weekend guide. The Columbia Gorge wineries also host a Thanksgiving Open House Weekend on both the Oregon and Washington sides. Their events and hours can be found here.
