A Winery Tour that Starts at Your Doorstep
Whether you are celebrating a birthday, entertaining out-of-town visitors, or just want an adventure with your friends out of the city, a winery tour with Shanghai Portland has you covered. Forget about cramped carpools, GPS, and designated drivers and leave the touring to us. With Shanghai Portland, the hundreds of vineyards in the Willamette Valley and Mt. Hood territory are a carefree bus ride away (disco ball optional, but encouraged).
The fun begins as soon as you step on one of our comfortable and spacious buses. We provide everything you need – from coolers ready for snacks and chilled white wines to a premium sound system tuned to your favorite songs. Sit back and let our friendly, expert drivers take you into the heart of wine country. We can take you to your choice of wineries, or offer suggestions from our list of favorites. And if you get the karaoke itch along the way, we’ve got you covered there too.
Oregon Wine Country is the Best Country
We are as enthusiastic about our wine country as the growers and vintners who have made the region famous. When the first vines were planted in the Willamette Valley 50 years ago, Oregon winemakers had a vision for a place that would produce world-class wine and become a destination on its own. At Shanghai Portland, we are excited to share that experience with you.
As a part of the Willamette Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA), the region is best known for its Pinot Noir but has much more to offer. The people and places are as rich as the soil, and there is no better way to explore all wine country has to offer than with our winery tours.
Choose Your Own Wineries or Let Us Lead the Way
In our part of the wine-loving world, there are more than enough vineyards, tasting rooms, and transportation options to choose from. What makes Shanghai Portland unique is our commitment to your satisfaction and the best Mt. Hood and Willamette Valley wine tours. Our drivers can take you on an adventure of your own creation, or we can share some of our favorite spots with you.
When it comes to choosing wineries for our tours, we have three requirements: stunning vineyard views, delicious wines, and friendly, knowledgeable staff. With those standards in mind, we have a list of one-of-a-kind wineries that showcase the best Oregon wine country has to offer
How to Make the Best of Your Winery Tour Experience
Everybody searching for wine tours near me ends up with a long list of places to go, but without much guidance on how to get the most out of their experience. Lucky for our guests, we’ve hosted hundreds of tours and have learned a few things along the way. Though no two tours are the same, we’ve picked up some pro-tips from our years of bus wine tours that make for a smooth and memorable event. Here are a few to get you started:
- Make your top choice your first stop. When it comes to day drinking, there’s no such thing as saving the best for last.
- Plan for thirst and hunger. Because one can’t live on wine alone.
- Set aside enough time. To maximize fun and minimize stress, plan on at least five hours for three wineries.
