The sprawling 100-mile-plus stretch of vineyards—extending around Eugene to the south, past Portland to the north, and reaching the banks of the Columbia River to the east—is proudly commemorating four decades of excellence in winemaking this year. Collaboration is literally in their roots, and the 15 Willamette Valley wineries that are featured with us this weekend, have come together to surprise and delight you with this lot for three special couples.  

Begin your retreat with a three-night stay at Domaine Serene’s luxurious Bunk House. Nestled amidst the stunning vineyards of Oregon’s picturesque Willamette Valley, these cozy and elegant accommodations offer a haven complete with stunning views. This spacious guest house features eight bedrooms, four full bathrooms, a full kitchen, and patio with grill and gas fireplace. Spend your final two nights at the WillaKenzie Estate House, which boasts five bedrooms with ensuite baths, full kitchen, and a beautiful outdoor area complete with an assortment of games to unwind on the lawn with as you take in the breathtaking Willamette Valley views. 

Inspire your inner winemaker with a one-of-a-kind blending experience led by Anne Sery, Director of Winemaking for Hyland Estate and NW Wine Company in Dundee. Enjoy a VIP tour and tasting at Hyland Estate Winery before crafting your own blend of Pinot Noir from their vineyards, which will then be bottled and sent to you for future enjoyment.
