Visit Wine Country by Bike this Weekend

This weekend is the 21st annual Memorial Weekend in the Wine Country.

Most wineries are open and there's no better way to visit than by bike! (Most of the wineries do have a tasting fee, but often refund it with a wine purchase.)

The south end of the Eola Hills are picturesque and offer a good number of wineries.

There's also a bunch of wineries in the Waldo Hills and out south towards Ankeny. For a short-hop, Willamette Valley Vineyards is probably the closest to downtown Salem.

Actually, the closest is Honeywood! But the idea's to get out and see vineyards and can go to the urban winery any day!

Where did you get the great graphic?

Sorry, I wasn't clear about leaving the references in-line. But I'm glad you like them!

The "support your local vineyard" graphic can be found by clicking on the "21st annual memorial weekend" link.

The map can be found by clicking the "south end of the Eola Hills" link.

An even more detailed topo map is here.

Shoot. I blew it: the "support your local vineyard" is at the winery association home page, here.
