Memorial Weekend in Willamette Valley Wine Country

Wineries in the Willamette Valley opened their doors Memorial Weekend as they kicked off the summer wine tasting season.  This was the 21st year of special events and tastings during Memorial Weekend.

Carlton, Oregon was among the towns buzzing with activity throughout the weekend.  Visitors enjoyed fine wine, food, music and hospitality offered by various businesses around the town.

This year Willamette Valley wineries donated a portion of proceeds to Ecotrust’s Farm to School Programs.  The programs work to promote more healthy, locally grown food choices at schools in the region.
