Tastings & Special Events
The Wine Shack’s Tasting Room, located upstairs, is the site of our weekly wine tastings. During the summer months (July & August), The Wine Shack offers wine tastings on every Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons, from 1-5 pm. Throughout the rest of the year, we taste every Saturday, 1-5 pm, and other days depending on festivals, weather, crowds, etc.
A typical wine tasting panel consists of 4 wines, usually two whites and two reds. We try to change the wines and regional emphasis to keep the tastings fresh. We also vary the wines by season. You may find us pouring a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Port during winter, or a Rose’ during summer, but one thing is certain….we are ALWAYS pouring an Oregon Pinot Noir.
On selected Saturdays during the year, The Wine Shack holds special “Winemaker Events.” These events are lot of fun and give you the chance to meet the winemaker and taste his/her wines. During the past year, The Wine Shack hosted some of the finest wineries in the Pacific Northwest, including: Abacela, Angel Vine, Capitello, Cristom, Elk Cove Vineyards, J Scott Cellars, Ken Wright Cellars, Pudding River Wine Cellars, Reustle Prayer Rock, Seven of Hearts, Sineann, Sleight of Hand, Walnut City Wineworks and Zerba Cellars.
