ABOUT THE TOUR
In this six-hour tour, guests will start with a near Portland pickup at Sunset Transit Center. A convenient location for downtown residents who can hop-on the MAX or metropolitan residents who can take a short Uber/Lyft ride and have a door-to-door day of wine tasting.
The first stop is in Carlton’s iconic grain elevator, which has been beautifully remodeled and is now home to Flâneur Wines. There, guests will enjoy a full tasting flight followed by a 40-minute class on Oregon wine—ranging from its compelling history to its unique AVAs and soil types. It is sure to be the most creative way you’ve learned about Oregon Wine.
Guests will then board the Wine Shuttle and head west through the great little town of Carlton to Résonance Winery where they’ll unwind with an exclusive, guided, vineyard hike and picnic lunch, while enjoying glasses of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
