Oregon Sightseeing Tours: Sea to summit will discuss all meal options relevant during the Oregon Tour you are headed out on. Again, taking each groups interest and individuality to mind, we will stop where is best on that particular trip.

Portland Ski Shuttles:  Its your call call … if you wanna be economical pack it, Otherwise grab it at the mountain at a price. However, I will say Timberline lodge has a pretty sweet buffet and FYI if you buy a lift ticket from Sea to Summit or have a season pass you get $5 off!

Do what with the water?

 

What do I do with the water on Oregon Wine Tours?

  • Drink the water,  Don’t rinse out your wine glass with it!  Most wineries have water on the counter to keep you hydrated. Water is destructive to wine and shouldn’t be used to rinse your glass between wine tastes. Water dilutes the wine and alters the chemistry, so if you must rinse your glass between tastes on the tour it is much better to rinse with wine than water. Tasting rooms present the wine from lightest to heaviest, so as long as you follow the recommended order, you will never have to worry about cleaning your glass out. But feel free to drink water whenever you want, please stay hydrated it will be a better experience if you stay hydrated during a Oregon Wine County Tour. We will also have plenty of bottled water for you in Sea to Summit’s vehicle as well during the tour.

Can kids come?

Can kids come on tours and ski shuttles?

Oregon Sightseeing Tours and Ski Shuttles

  • Children are welcome on both of these activities…. if they are joining a ski shuttle without parents please print and sign parental consent form you receive on confirmation email and bring the morning of the trip.

Oregon Wine Tours & Portland Brewery Tours

  • If you would like to charter a private tour, you are welcome to bring the whole family! But unfortunately our wine tours are intended for adults and we restrict our group tours to adults 21 & over. Kids don’t really have much fun at the wineries anyway, and the wineries appreciate a sitter even more than you do!

Do you have limos?

Sorry, no limos here…..

  • We are experienced, knowledgeable and laid back native Oregonians and our guides will provide a great experience in Oregon’s wine country. While limos are great for weddings and maybe proms, they are not ideal for Oregon’s Wine Country or any other of our tours for that matter.
  • Having a stretched car doesn’t make sense on dirt wine country roads or make the wines taste any better during a Oregon wine tour.
  • Sea to Summit’s tour vehicles have forward facing seats and are more comfortable especially when drinking wine and have large windows so you can view the beautiful Oregon wine county scenery during the tour.
  • Furthermore, some Oregon “off the beaten path”wineries don’t even allow limos. Some winery access roads can be to difficult or impossible to get to as the roads are too steep and precarious and they just are not practical.

what to bring?

5 things to bring on my Oregon wine tour?

  •  Smile & good attitude is always the best way to start any and all of Sea to Summit’s Tours and Adventures!
  •  Bring your ID.  Oregon’s wineries will need to see your ID if you plan on tasting wine during the Wine Tour.
  •  Appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes. Depending on the time of the year, dress appropriate for Oregon’s weather and comfortable shoes as we are headed to the Oregon’s Wine Country and not to a concrete jungle, mall or disco.
  • Appetite, Sea to Summit will discuss lunch options during the wine tour.  From gourmet delis, local bistros or Picnics for Private groups, either way you will have some delicious food on your Oregon wine tour adventure!
  • Camera, Oregon’s wine country is very scenic during all times of  year and we surely want you to capture the special moments of you and your friends having fun on your day in Oregon’s Wine Country 🙂

How to taste wine?

What is the best way to taste wine on a Oregon Wine Tour?

  • There is no wrong way to enjoy wine on one of our Oregon Wine Tours! That being said, many people can get a lot more from the glass by taking a few moments to stop and smell the vino. Stick your nose in and breathe deeply, you might be surprised at the variety of aromas that a well crafted glass of wine (Oregon Pinot Noir) will release.  Swish the wine around in your mouth, stimulate the entire palate.  The more you think about and talk about the flavors, the easier it gets to describe them…. Enjoy!

Winery tasting fees?

How much are wine tasting fees at Oregon Wineries?

Generally tasting fees are between $10-20 for a flight of wine at each Willamette Valley Winery. But don’t worry, if you join a public Oregon wine tour with Sea to Summit Tours & Adventures we include the tasting fees and take care of everything  during the day.


Visit which wineries?

How do we select the wineries on the Oregon Wine Tour?

  • Sea to Summit is very familiar with dozens of the Willamette Valley and Hood River Wineries.  Depending on the day of the week and winery availability, Sea to Summit creates a tour itinerary that visits wineries with great wines, outstanding hospitality and incredible scenery….. all key components to a fantastic Oregon Wine Tour!
  • For Private Wine Tours, Sea to Summit is always happy to cater to a groups interest and individuality, in other words we will discuss all options to make your Oregon wine tour experience perfect, just for you!

Wine Tour Pickup?

Where will you pick us up before our Oregon Wine tour?

  • PUBLIC WINE TOURS – Sea to Summit will pick you up from your downtown Portland hotel whenever possible prior to the Oregon wine tour.  For wine tour clients whom are not staying in downtown Portland we will ask for you to meet us at centrally located Pioneer Square (corner of Broadway & Morrison in front of Starbucks, on the Max line) When making your online reservation you will be asked which option works best for you?
  • PRIVATE WINE TOURS – Sea to Summit will pick up anywhere in the centrally located Portland metro area, house, hotel, office etc….. However some suburbs outside city limits may have a surcharge added, but all this will be discussed when making you Oregon wine tour reservation.

Can we buy wine?

Can we purchase wine while in Oregon’s wine country?

Oh yes and we always recommend taking some of our would famous wines home with you.  While you may of heard of some of our Oregon wineries prior to your trip, many of the vintages and wines you will taste can only be purchased in Oregon and a few solely at the wineries themselves.


Shipping Oregon wine home?

How do I get wine home after the Oregon Wine Tour?

  • Some states prohibit wine shipments, but don’t worry you can pack your Oregon wine tour purchases in specially padded “wine shipper” boxes,  which check like luggage on the plane.  Otherwise the boxes are the same wine shipper boxes that can be sent via UPS. Sea to Summit will discuss all these options during your Oregon wine tour and find a solution that best works for you.  Wine boxes generally come in 6, and 12 bottles and are available at the Oregon wineries during the tour.

How many wineries?

How many wineries do we typically visit?

  • During a Sea to Summit tour we typically visit 4 wineries on our public Oregon Wine Tours. Private wine tour groups can vary as we always try cater to the individuality and interests of each group. Sea to Summit will discuss all of your Oregon wine tour options when you make your tour reservation.

Meals included?

What about lunch, is food included?

 Sea to Summit will always stop someplace with great cuisine during the tour and your meal decision and price is independent of the tour.

Oregon Wine Tours: Typically we grab gourmet sandwich’s, salads, etc and picnic at one of the scenic vineyards on our Oregon Wine Tours.
