We will pick you up from your lodging in the McMinnville area so that you don't have to drink and drive all. You will be transported in an SUV or Premium sedan to three wineries. We will spend about 45 minutes to an hour in each wine and during the course of the guided tour taste in the region of 15-18 wines (at no extra cost). During the tour, we will have the opportunity to enjoy some of the finest rural scenery of the North end of the Willamette Valley. We will return to your pick up location approximately 3.5 hours from when we picked you up. The maximum group size is 4 so you won't feel as if you are part of a huge tour bus but rather a personal bespoke adventure.
