VISIT & Taste – BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
I would love to see you, but as I do not have a dedicated tasting room – and because I'm often out working in the vineyard – visits to the winery in the community of Monitor, Oregon (see map to Hanson Vineyards, where I make my wine) are by appointment only.
I offer two experiences for you:
- Snap Experience / no fee – For no charge, I am happy to provide you and your companions a complimentary taste of one (1) wine of your choosing. This experience typically lasts between 5 and 15 minutes. We can discuss the wines and the vintage, and you can try a wine before you buy it. You may also purchase any currently available wine without tasting, if you prefer. This experience can be scheduled for any day of the week.
- Weekday Tasting Experience / $50 flat fee (up to 4 persons) – This experience (not available on weekends) lasts up to 2 hours and includes a tasting of 5 wines, complimentary cheese and charcuterie, and – conditions permitting – a walk into the vineyard. We can discuss winegrowing and winemaking in depth if you wish, or you may simply enjoy the wines with your companions. The $50 flat fee is waived with the purchase of 4 bottles. Additional guests are welcome at the pro-rated rate (thus, a $100 flat fee for 5 to 8 persons and $150 for 9 to 12 persons).
A 15% discount applies to purchases of 12 or more bottles.
Please use the "contact us" form to make an appointment. Each experience is personally hosted by me, Mike Hinds – winemaker, vine tender, and sole employee. Unless I am out of town and unable to receive guests, I look forward to meeting you!
