Bluebird Hill Cellars "Thanksgiving in August"
Time & Location
About The Event
We’re thinking ahead to fall and the activities that need to happen around the vineyard and winery: harvest, of course, fermentations, barreling of the new reds, taking care of the new white wines and rosé, and of course, later in the fall, Thanksgiving wine tastings, which are a big deal in the Willamette Valley and all around Oregon. And then we starting thinking, sometimes the weather in that latter part of November can get a little rough, and our little tasting room that is so cozy, that if we think about social distancing, we maybe would only have one or two tables in all of the tasting room!
With this thought in mind, we’re planning here at Bluebird Hill, to celebrate Thanksgiving in August! For two special weekends, August 14-16, and 21-23, we’re going to be hosting guests by reservation, with special hours and special events: Fridays and Saturdays will be noon to 7 pm, and Sundays will be 11 to 5. For those who would like to book outside our normal business hours (Fri 3-7, Sat & Sun 12-5) please call our winery (541-424-2478) to book your reservation otherwise you can book online. So, talk to your family members or your pod, make your plans, book a reservation for our outdoor tasting venue, pack a picnic and enjoy the fresh breeze off the coastal range and our expansive view of the valley! For those of you who have already made it out here this summer, you know we have set up tables for tasting with very generous spacing – some of the tables on our front lawn are 30 feet or more away from any others.
Our reservation system allows for staggered arrival times, so you can be pretty sure you will not be arriving at the same time as another party. Sue and Neil will greet you from a safe distance and direct you to your table, where you can enjoy a few relaxed hours out on our patio. Note also, for seniors and others especially concerned about keeping appropriate distance, we have the opportunity to find an appropriate, mutually agreeable day and time, on a day we are not typically open, to arrange for a totally private tasting experience. Call us to discuss and arrange!
