Memorial Weekend from Wine Country
This year, Join us from anywhere.
It’s springtime in wine country! In the spirit of our long-running Memorial Weekend event, we invite you to join us for Memorial Weekend from Wine Country. We will be sharing the Willamette Valley virtually in the weeks leading up to this holiday weekend. And don’t forget to check out our Virtual Experiences to see individual wineries’ special online events.
Our wineries are slowly beginning to reopen under the Governor’s Phase One Reopening guidelines. Be sure to check out our reopening guide to learn what to expect from tasting rooms during this time.
MEMORIAL WEEKEND from WINE COUNTRY
We’re bringing wine country to you. Each week beginning April 28 and culminating on May 25, we will be featuring a selection of very special Willamette Valley wines on a theme, with a direct link to purchase.
Week Four (May 18–25) is all about New Releases!
For more than a decade, the Willamette Valley Wineries Association has been honored to work with Portland-based artist John Fisher for original Memorial Weekend in Wine Country art.
John pairs his artistic vision with years of graphic design experience to create inspiring, sophisticated landscapes and figurative work. His landscapes have a definitive sense of place, allowing you to feel the emotion and mood of the day with his intuitive use of color and brushwork. The shifting force of weather has a profound impact on his work and ability to capture the soul of the Pacific Northwest landscape. John is an art director and designer in Portland, Oregon, originally hailing from Omaha, Nebraska. A graduate of the University of Kansas Fine Art program, he developed a passion for landscape painting while exploring the back roads and open plains of the Midwest. When not in the studio designing, he is likely to be roaming the countryside, capturing Northwest landscapes on canvas.
We asked winemakers for their stories from self-isolation, special offers, virtual events, favorite wine podcasts, quarantine jams, and charitable partnerships, and we gathered them all to create our #WVCommunity center.
