All tours are conducted using a sanitized and well maintained Lexus SUV. Per state regulations face masks must be worn in the vehicle and in interior spaces of wineries unless actively tasting or eating. We will continue to monitor and comply with the regulations as they evolve. Reservations are crucial this year and required at most wineries. Every effort will be made to meet our guests’ special requests, please note, due to Covid, the flexibility of tours will be a bit curtailed from prior seasons.
All tours are led and hosted by Oregon wine industry veteran Charles M. Garrell. Charlie is a certified senior cellar manager, enthusiastic connoisseur and passionate tour guide. Charlie has worked for some of the finest wineries in the Willamette Valley and has represented more than a dozen separate wine brands. Active participation in local industry groups and an eager pursuit of incredible wine have given Charlie the connections to deliver unmatched Willamette Valley tours.
