Friday April 29th started out with some chilly winds and rain but by noon the weather turned sunny and quite nice. We thought that a ride to a Vineyard was the perfect thing to do on a sunny Friday afternoon late in April.

The Willamette Valley is the perfect spot for such an undertaking. Between Corvallis and McMinnville there are at least 40 Vineyards. That is sometimes the problem, which vineyard to visit! Bethel Heights has been on my "short list" for quite some time. Thus we found our destination.

We arrived about 1 pm with the expectation that we would probably be the only wine tasters there. We were proven incorrect almost immediately. We encountered a couple visiting from Stockon, California and another couple from Colorado. The couple from Stockon write a wine blog, "pullthatcork.com". Visited the site, quite interesting!

Anyway, within thirty minutes there were about 20 fellow wine "aficionados" in the Bethel Tasting Room, all enjoying some of Bethel Height's best wines.

The Vineyard, nearly 50 acres planted, is located on a promontory overlooking the Coastal Range to the West and the Cascades to the East. An outstanding view on a sunny day. 

There is a fireplace and indoor seating area with additional seating  and patio outdoors.

The Hostess, our mentor, & very patient, explained the various wines, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc etc... was well informed and very personable.

There is a $5 per person tasting fee that can be applied to any wine purchase.

We enjoyed our visit to Bethel Heights Vineyard and would return at a later date. This Vineyard is worth a stop if you have the time!

Bethel Heights is in Salem, Oregon, 6060 Bethel Heights Road NW.

Telephone: 503-581-2262 Hours posted: Tuesday-Sunday 11 am until 5 pm
