"Every morning of IPNC a fleet of buses spreads out over the Willamette Valley taking groups to seminars and sumptuous lunches, but you don't know where you're going until you get there..."
- Craig Camp, The Wine Camp Blog
Travel through Oregon's vine-covered countryside to a nearby Willamette Valley winery where you will enjoy a guided stroll through the vineyard. Three of our Featured Winemakers will give you a hands-on demonstration of what it means to promote “balance in the vineyard”, a term that is often used but challenging to understand because it differs from site to site. During your tour, each winemaker will describe how he or she tailors farming to the specific plot in order to develop fruit that is expressive and true to the land. Afterward, you’ll head inside the winery to taste the resulting wine with the winemakers. Following the seminar and tasting, enjoy an exquisite multi-course lunch crafted by one of our esteemed guest chefs, paired with an array of wines from your host winery.
In keeping with the IPNC tradition, your Vineyard Tour and Winery Lunch destination will remain a secret until you board your tour bus and are en route.
