Our first Oregon wine experience.
This was a nice older winery without the buzzer and bells. When we walked in there was a counter with plastic divider because of Covic. Tastings were $10 for 5 tastes. There were reds, whites and fruit wines. You picked what you wanted. The server was knowledgeable and friendly. The pours were extremely tiny. You couldn't get a true taste. Decent red wines, but we've had better. No place to sit inside.
go somewhere else
I've been to lot of tastings and this has to be the worse. $10.00 for 5 tastes-The owner was talking about the second or third taste, he didn't pour enough wine for 1 taste. 1/2 oz- what a rip-
Fun & laid-back vibe
After a visit to Ecola State Park, my daughter, wife and I stopped by at Nehalem Bay for a tasting. I definitely approve of their policy. They charge $10 per person, but you can try as many of their wines as you like, and they will credit the tasting fee if you buy a bottle. There were probably 15-20 wines spread out between non-grape (fruit) sweet wines, along with some off-dry and dry reds and whites. I probably tried about seven or eight, and ended up buying a bottle of their off-dry Riesling, and their Honey Meade. We then each bought a glass and sat out on their grounds. The grounds are comfortable, and a little scenic. My daughter mentioned her boyfriend would have really liked visiting. Each glass was only $5. This was a really good way to spend an hour or two relaxing.
Retail wine not winery
I appreciate the situation with COVID-19 but now basically they meet you at your car and offer sight unseen bottles of wine for sale at $20 and up a bottle. Very nice individual selling the wines but definitely not a winery or tasting operation
Change of Heart
I really appreciate red wine and upon entering this winery I pretty much knew what I would be tasting and/or purchasing. On the counter were two distinctly different groups of wines. One that had the usual whites and reds and one group of fruit wines. Usually I avoid fruit wines, disliking the cloying sweet taste. For a modest fee, I anticipated trying only a few of the wines but all of the reds and whites were included! I did find a few reds I considered for purchase and then I learned that we would be tasting the fruit wines as well and I thought why not? I believe that the first I tried was an apple wine - crisp and clean and truly tasting of apple. Not overly sweet and very refreshing, so I continued tasting and I was pleasantly surprised to find only a couple that were too sugery and so I purchased four of those fine fruit wines! Something wonderfully different. Not to be overlooked was the server. He was full of information, humor, and suggestions about using/serving those fruit wines. I give him five stars. .
