Frequently Asked Questions

COVID 19 Policies

NW Wine Shuttle follows the Center of Disease-Control (CDC) and the direction of Oregon’s guidance with regard to COVID. If you have the following symptoms we respectfully ask that you stay home or reschedule.

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Dry Cough
  • Difficulty Breathing

What is hop-on, hop-off with reservations?

The majority of wineries have moved to a reservation-based model. This means, we are asked to inform each winery of when customers are being dropped off. Now when you book the Wine Shuttle you will be prompted to choose three wineries, which will become your itinerary for the day of your tour. NW Wine Shuttle will organize your itinerary and ensure the wineries know you are coming. We call it shared transportation with private reservations.

Are tasting fees included?

No, wine tasting fees are not included.  There are a couple ways to get your tasting fees waived including buying wine or becoming a member of the wine club.

Is lunch included?

Lunch is not included with the price of this tour, however, we believe lunch is an important part of the day and would be happy to help offer recommendations. If you are participating in a Private Tour we can even pick up lunch before or during the tour depending on how it works with the logistics.  If you are riding the hop-on hop-off wine shuttle we will send you an email with what wineries have food for purchase and what wineries allow outside food so you can plan accordingly.

Can we have more than 8 people on our tour?

Yes, we are able to host up to 14 people in a single van. However, groups over 8 are now considered a large party and there may be additional fees associated with your winery reservations. NW Wine Shuttle does not plan itineraries for groups over 8 in the peak season (May-Oct) and for group over 6 in the Winter (Nov-April).

Do you offer pickups outside of Yamhill County?

Yes, please email to inquire There could be additional costs.

Do you allow drinking on your vehicles?

All of our services do not allow drinking while on the vehicle.  We do this for many reasons, including preparing your palate for a full day of wine experiences.

What if I have to cancel?

We know that things happen, we offer full refunds with 48 hours advanced notice for Wine Shuttle guests. And 5 days advanced notice for Private Tours.
