The Solar Winery Tour travels this year to beautiful Hood River County. Taste wine and hear solar stories, either in-person or virtually.
NOTE: the in-person tour in Hood River is on Saturday, August 7th. The virtual Solar Winery Tour is on Tuesday, August 10th. See schedule below.
On Saturday, August 7th, 2021, Solar Oregon will be combining two of our greatest passions, solar and wine! Every year, we immerse ourselves in the stories and bouquet of three of Oregon’s top solar-loving wineries. Join us this year either in-person or virtually as we travel to the beautiful Columbia River Gorge and immerse our senses in the solar stories and palates of Idiot’s Grace Wines, Double Mountain Brewery, and a special mystery site.
Want to join the tour virtually and enjoy great wine from home? Choose a virtual ticket to join us on Tuesday, August 10th. Each Solar Wine Basket ticket holder will be able to pick up a complimentary basket containing splendid wines (or beers) from each site to sip while watching, or choose a Virtual Tour ticket for just the webinar experience.
Join us for an incredible journey exploring the nexus of sunshine, energy, and one of humanity’s oldest traditions. Thank you for supporting Solar Oregon, and our mission to create a clean energy future!
