A LITTLE EXTRA LOVE IN YOUR GLASS.

Collaboration and social responsibility are cornerstone principles in our Valley. Our visitors have the opportunity to explore this side of wine country by choosing a Taste of Community Loop dedicated to a cause close to the hearts of our wineries. Each loop is made up of neighboring wineries and lodging or restaurants who have teamed up to support a local nonprofit of their choice, with donations from tasting fees or proceeds from a special flight or offering during the spring season.

Nonprofit partners include SNACK (Student Nutrition and Activity Clinic for Kids), which offers nutrition and fitness education; Give A Little Foundation, which provides immediate assistance for struggling youth and families; Transition Projects Portland, bringing support and shelter to Portland’s most vulnerable residents; and the vineyard and winery workers’ healthcare project ¡Salud! Browse winery loops and learn about their featured nonprofit partner below, and look for each winery’s special pour or flight to designate a portion of your tasting fee to their chosen cause.
