Become a winemaker by tasting through the barrel lots, trialing different blends and crafting your own unique cuvée. Enjoy a glass or take home your blend in a reusable growler.
The experience begins by selecting red varietals to blend. Start sampling, take notes in your passport, then blend!
Cost to blend is $25 per person, or $15 for Club Members, Owners and their guests. This experience is approximately 60-90 minutes.
If you enjoyed your blend, purchase a glass or take your blend home in one of our reusable growlers (750mL).

Behind the Blending Experience
Four Willamette Valley Vineyards team members collaborated to create this experience, where individual varieties continue to develop in barrel allowing customers to blend their own, one-of-a-kind wines.
