2016 Thanksgiving Weekend Wine Tasting Guide

View map full screen

Thanksgiving weekend is one of the best weekends to go wine tasting in Oregon. Most wineries are open and many small wineries who don’t have regular hours are open to the public. From holiday markets to live music and turkey nacho bars, the holiday excitement is in the air!

Wondering where to go? Want to try some place new? Heading down to Southern Oregon or visiting family in Eugene? We’ve got a great list of places for you to visit around the state. Each of these wineries has been a winery partner of Cellar 503 in the past two years and we can promise that there are some great wines to be had at each of these locations!

We are continuing to update the list as more events get scheduled.
