Tasting room information will be shared in the official 2017-18 Oregon Wine Touring Guide and online
In anticipation of the upcoming 2017-18 guide, which will be released in February, please take a few minutes to ensure that the information OWB has on record about your tasting room is accurate by following the instructions below. The guide will feature your tasting room’s address, hours, phone number and website. Additional information about your business will be featured on the OWB’s consumer site later this fall.
Roughly 80 of the 485 profiles have been claimed so far. The deadline for updating your profile for inclusion in the 2017-18 guide is Oct. 28. For additional information about this project, read this OWB blog post. If you have any questions about the Oregon Wine Touring Guide, contact Jess Willey.
