This coming weekend, many wineries are opening up their doors. In this edition, I focus on wineries that are opening to the public for the first time, as well as some smaller locations that tend to get overlooked. In particular, I am going to focus on the Yamhill County and Willamette Valley areas. Be sure to call ahead and get confirmation on which wineries will be open.
And remember, to have safe and relaxing time, try limiting your wine outing to four wineries.
Yamhill County Wineries
A to Z Wineworks is not a new winery but will be opening their doors for the first time ever this weekend. 9360 Eola Hills Road, Amity. (503) 835-9010.

Lastly, one winery is changing its name. Many of you might have visited Chateau Benoit, and soon you will be visiting Anne Amie. I have tasted, enjoyed and purchased the Anne Amie wines in the past and can say they are all very superb wines. I would recommend that you stop and try them for yourself.
