       At Grape Escape, personalized tours and wine events in Oregon Wine Country are a specialty, and have been since 1994.  Whether it is a small-group occasion or special corporate event, the escape artists at Grape Escape Wine Tours will do all the work while you have lots of fun.  Join them for a day, an afternoon, an evening escape or a multi-day trip in Oregon's beautiful wine country.  You're sure to enjoy your tour while learning a lot at the same time; you'll be in the hands of carefully selected touring guides with varying backgrounds and pleasing personalities well suited to sharing what they know with groups both small and large.

       With close to 700 wineries throughout Oregon's wine regions, choosing which to visit can be daunting.  That's why Grape Escape's more than 20 years of accumulated knowledge and experience is so valuable.  Having led customized tours through the Oregon wine country regions of the Willamette Valley and the Columbia Gorge, Grape Escape Wine Tours is well prepared to help you create an itinerary matched to you and your personal preferences. Or if you prefer, you can join one of the pre-arranged "Joinable Escapes" departing from wine country hotels on various dates throughout the year.  Whichever option you choose, you will be glad to know Grape Escape knows that Oregon wine is made for food; they complement each all their tours with cuisine made to pair with the wines to be tasted and the occasion of the tour.

"Grape Escape is the touring company for
the serious wine connoisseur."
Chef/owner Jack Czarnecki, Joel Palmer House

       No two tours are the same with Grape Escape, but most small groups range in size from eight to twelve people.  Customers enjoy the comfort, ride and views that Grape Escape's luxury vans provide as they traverse the scenic, sometimes rugged, Oregon Wine Country.  If your group is larger, a second "Vimo" is provided or even a third... or more, for extra large groups - all the way up to 60.  Customers enjoy this approach for groups of varying sizes.  They receive a more personalized experience, yet still are able to visit with the entire group at each winery.  Even larger groups can arrange for an appropriate size vehicle that works for them and for the wineries visited that day.  Either way, Grape Escape will handle the details so you can visit the wine country in comfort.

Two Levels of Touring

  • Grape Escape - Great for the novice or aficionado.  Includes wineries at all levels, mid- to high-end.
