Willamette Valley Wineries Association 50th Anniversary Celebration
February 21, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$150
PORTLAND — Willamette Valley wineries have come a long way since those first Pinot Noir vines went into the ground in 1965. At the rate we’re growing, though, we may not all be able to fit in the same space ever again.
Feb. 22 marks the 50th anniversary of the late David Lett’s first planting of Pinot Noir at The Eyrie Vineyards. There are now more than 440 wineries and 647 vineyards in the Willamette Valley.
Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime evening, to reconnect with people you haven’t seen in years, reminisce with old friends, greet new faces and celebrate five wonderful decades of winegrowing in the Willamette Valley.
The Willamette Valley Wineries Association party will feature an unparalleled tasting of library wines, food by Art of Catering, live music, historic photo displays and an enormous family portrait. It’s a family reunion 50 years in the making.
