The Essentials:

Since 2020, Oregon’s Willamette Valley Wine Country adopted a reservation-based wine tasting model. NW Wine Shuttle has reimagined its popular hop-on hop-off Wine Shuttle to give you the same convenience and affordability, but with the added value of a private itinerary and reservations.

Itinerary

We have curated the perfect route of 7-10 wineries and a brewery. Select 3 at checkout and we’ll do the rest. We plan an efficient itinerary based on your selections, and make the reservations so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Then all you have to do is hop-on and hop-off according to your itinerary.

Group Size

This Wine Tour is perfect for groups with 1-6 people (Groups of 6+ must book a private tour).

5/5

“So easy to use! They stop by your winery every half hour so it’s super simple to plan. They had complimentary waters and had a place to store the wine you buy. They tag your bottles so it doesn’t get confused for someone else’s. They were very friendly and accommodating. We had Paul and he was great!”

“Hands down: the BEST way to experience wine country! It made exploring wine country so easy, so fun, and so affordable! No one in the group had to sit out to be a designated driver, and the drivers were very friendly! I’ll definitely use this service again, and recommend it to anyone that visits Oregon wine country!”

“This service is a no brainer. Leave the driving to someone else while you concentrate on wine tasting. Friendly drivers, clean vans and a convenient hub.”

“A MUST when visiting Portland’s gorgeous wine country. There’s a pick up and drop off in downtown which is wonderful if you’re not spending the night in the area. We got picked up at the Red Hills Inn hub which was super easy and convenient as well. Paul, our driver was great and was always on time. Very clean and friendly ride. Definitely using the service again. Can’t wait to go back.”

“This is a wonderful way to visit some of the best and most beautiful wineries the Willamette Valley has to offer. Our driver picked us up and dropped us off close to our hotel and was helpful and friendly. Kim was wonderful in helping us pick which tasting rooms best suited our tastes. She even kept our purchased bottles safe while we continued to visit other wineries. We will absolutely use the shuttle again if we are in the area, and have recommended it to our friends.”

Frequently Asked Questions:

The shuttle can accommodate a maximum of 13 people, which will be made up of multiple parties of 6 or less. The shuttle will rotate through 8-10 wineries on our itinerary, drop you off at the 3 wineries you chose, then pick you up and take you to the next winery. Therefore, your day is fully customized and you will not always be in the shuttle with all 13 people.

Most of the wineries on our list do accept minors, but we will let you know if there are any concerns with your chosen wineries. Keep in mind that each person, including minors, needs to buy a shuttle ticket. The price of our shuttle does not include tasting fees, so they are paying for one of the limited seats in our shuttle. When booking, please make a note to let us know if you have any minors joining you so we can make sure you have a problem-free day!
