Menus of vineyard experiences aren’t uncommon in Napa and Sonoma Valleys, but
rarer in the less commercial Willamette Valley in Oregon. This summer, the small pinot noir specialist Penner-Ash Wine Cellars in the Willamette town of Newberg has introduced a menu of estate experiences spanning tours, tastings and hikes.
The winery now offers two free half-hour drop-in tours of the gravity-flow winery, at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. daily. Other options are available by advance booking and include private winery tours with a flight of five wines to taste ($35 a person) and an optional box lunch ($35 extra). Guided hikes on the 80-acre property start at $50 a person.
