Pinot Paddle – YVV & Willamette Riverkeeper

Jun 15, 2019

WHAT: Pinot Paddle

WHEN: June 15th - 16th

WHERE: Salem to St. Paul, 27 miles over two days

COST: $349 per guest (includes all tasting fees, dinner wines, 3 catered meals, lunch sack, shuttle transport)

 

Pinot Paddle 

The Willamette Valley, Oregon's largest wine region, brings the perfect balance of temperature, humidity, soil and river recreation to yield Willamette Riverkeeper's first inaugural Pinot Paddle! Experience a weekend of world-class wines and a celebrated National Water Trail.

While Pinot Noir is the Valley’s leading varietal, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and some 75 other varietals are also worthy of attention. In wine, location is the key ingredient, which is also true when it comes to selecting your paddling route and camping spot. We’ve combined the best both worlds with a weekend itinerary completely unique to our own Willamette Valley AVA: 

  • Scenic paddling
  • Wine tasting from 4 artisanal winemakers featuring pleasing PINOTS
  • Spacious camping along a quiet back channel
  • Delicious catered meals
  • Live music
  • Riverside talks

DETAILS: Meet and park in Salem's Wallace Marine Park. You'll need to pack your boat with your camping gear (note: If you are paddling a kayak, your camping gear must be safely stored and secured inside your boat and not stacked on top of your deck.). We'll paddle 12 miles to our campsite on Grand Island, an Oregon State Parks Greenway property located behind Wheatland Bar.

After you set up your tent, you'll enjoy appetizers and eventually dinner, while you taste a variety of Willamette Valley grown pinots including PINOT NOIR, PINOT GRIS, PINOT BLANC, PINOT ROSE and other notable selections from our four featured wineries. You'll learn more about this tempermental grape, as well as the Willamette River and our stewardship work, while jazz  guitarist Jeff Putterman strums in the background. Jeff is a unique guitarist and composer who has performed as a soloist, sideman and ensemble leader in clubs and concert halls from coast to coast and abroad.

After a hot breakfast and yoga session on Sunday morning, we'll pack up and head downstream, paddling 14 miles to our take out at San Salvador Park.  Here we'll load you and your boat onto our shuttle buses, and transport you back to your vehicle at Wallace Marine Park in Salem. 

BRING: Pack a lunch and water bottle for Saturday afternoon (the rest of your meals will be catered), your own paddle craft (capable of transporting your camping gear), tent, sleeping bag, and sleeping pad.
