Celebrate Oregon Crab Month

At Willamette Valley Vineyards we love to celebrate the bounty the Oregon brings us, especially in January during Oregon Crab Month. Our Pinot Gris, when matched with seafood, enhances the flavor of the dish. We believe it is the seafood wine.

We were honored when our Pinot Gris was recognized by Wine Enthusiast Magazine who named our 2015 vintage as Editor’s Choice and awarded it with a 90-point rating.

For our 20th straight year we are celebrating Oregon Crab Month with our Mo’s Crab & Chowder Festival, January 28th and 29th, at our Estate Tasting Room from 11 am - 6 pm. This tradition brings us the flavors of the Oregon Coast by offering Mo’s world-famous steaming chowder bowls, fresh Oregon coast Dungeness crab and other seafood selections which pairs perfectly with our Pinot Gris.
