Private Wine Tours:
Willamette Valley, Outside The Bottle

Meet The Creators

This wine tour highlights the “Creators” of Willamette Valley wine country. They are the farmers, winemakers, winery owners, workers and hospitality enthusiasts like ourselves. There are tens of thousands of us that make up Oregon’s wine industry. A wine industry so influential, you want to come visit. Yet, it is only 1% of domestic wine production.

When you tour with us, you’ll engage with these Creators and become connected to our wine culture. At the end of the day, people influence experiences more than wine.

What's Included

Incredibly Fabulous Host. Our hosts are guaranteed to be friendly and accommodating. Comfort, timeliness and organization are standard. Want us to pick up lunch, store your wine, grab your jacket, provide a blanket/sunglasses, take a photo? We are enthusiastically on it.

Punctuality. There is nothing more reassuring than your fabulous host showing up on time (which is really 10 minutes early).

  • Choose a pickup location. We go anywhere up to 50 miles from Carlton. Unsure, send us an email
  • Portland Pickup available for businesses and corporate events

Ingenuity. Our specialty is connecting you with inspiring creators of our wine country. After all, if you’re not inspired by the people, the experience falls flat. We are all about discovery, efficiency, and balance.

  • We do not participate in pay-to-play practices. There is just too much to see and do. 
  • We make winery reservations for groups of 8 or less. Large groups are responsible for making their own reservations. Don’t worry we are here to help.

Ambiance. Second only to inspiring people is your physical environment. We aim for an experience that makes people feel comfortable, excited, and curious.

  • Music is a must. We make it easy for a member of your group to connect to our bluetooth system.
  • Alcohol is not. Why dull your senses between tastings? We’re here to ease the temptation by not allowing the consumption of alcohol in our vans.

Hydration. Good for freshening up the palate and washing down the crackers you noshed on between tastings. Water for all!

Gratuity. Our hosts meant the world to us. They ensure your experience is a good one. That’s why a 20% gratuity is added to all services. It is 100% enjoyed by our drivers. 

Not Included

Tasting Fees. Our motto is buy wine not tasting fees. This means if you buy wine (typically two bottles), tasting fees are waived. Then you go home with goods and memories. However, we support whatever you choose.

Sustenance. You have options, except for not refueling 😉. That’s why it’s part of the planning but not the pricing.

  • Food add-ons available as extra during the check out process.
  • Order lunch from a local restaurant for us to pick up.
  • Enjoy local provisions offered by a winery (Often Charcuterie).
