Willamette Valley is recognized as one of the premier Pinot noir producing regions in the world. This is why we have partnered with some of our finest local wineries to bring the ultimate Oregon wine tasting experience to our guests.

In this post, we shine the spotlight one of our Wine Tour Package partner vineyards, Cooper Mountain Vineyards located in Beaverton, Oregon.

Nestled on the western slopes of an extinct volcano, Cooper Mountain Vineyards operates by a simple philosophy: wine is memory of land.

The vineyard was founded in 1978 by Dr. Robert Gross and his wife, Corrine when they planted their first Pinot and Chardonnay vines. Today Cooper Mountain Vineyards farms 123 acres scattered throughout the Northern Willamette Valley and offers certified organic and biodynamic Pinot noir, Pinot gris, and Chardonnay wines.

Their tasting room, located at 20121 SW Leonardo Ln. in Beaverton, is open from noon to 5pm daily. For more information, you can contact them by calling (503) 649-0027 or email them at info@coopermountainwine.com.

Be sure to like them on Facebook for updates and to see more photos like these:

Oregon’s Sparkling Reputation

Jan 16, 2013

Without fail, every New Year’s Eve reminds us of the same thing: sparkling wine is a glorious thing. Each sip delivers a savory effervescence skirting the boundaries of sweet and tart. It’s a fizzing ritual we adore; it’s joy and celebration in a flute glass.

Whether called cava, proseco or “bubbly”, sparkling wine enlivens brunches among friends and enchants evenings for lovers. We see no reason why the bubbly should be kept hidden away until the final gasps of the year!

Since its inception in the 1960s, Oregon’s wine industry has captured accolades from around the world. Oregon wine country has earned a reputation as a go-to destination for oenophiles and casual tasters alike. We are especially proud of the region’s sparkling wines. Oregon’s crisp Willamette Valley climate is ideally situated for the production of the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier varietals that become fine sparkling wine.

Grand Hotel Bridgeport guests are encouraged to explore the many unique winaries throughout Willamette Valley. Sparkling wine site tours are a popular option among our visitors. There is no shortage in touring companies who are familiar with the hidden gems and famous standouts of the region.

Here are a few resources to get you started:

Special Wine Tour packages are available here at The Grand Hotel at Bridgeport that include eight wine tasting vouchers to 4 wineries (listed below), one bottle of local Oregon wine, and late check out.  This is the perfect way to make the most of the weekend by touring some of the valley’s finest vineyards and wineries and end your adventure with us for a night of relaxing bliss.
