In order to provide the best tasting experience for all of our guests, we ask that groups of 10 or more book a group tasting in advance (48 hours or more preferred). This $20 per person tasting option is available to groups of 10-20 people. Advance reservations are required and a credit card is due at the time of booking. We do not require a deposit; however, if your party fails to appear at its scheduled time, we will charge the credit card 25% of the anticipated total.
Please plan to allow 30-60 minutes for the tasting and time in our gift shop. To request a group tasting, please call us at 503.538.3199.
Those seeking a more leisurely, in-depth tasting are invited to join us for our 'Vineyard to Glass' Tour and Seated Tasting Experience which includes a winery tour and seated tasting led by one of Duck Pond’s wine educators. You will receive a behind-the-scenes look at our winery operations, including a walk through our vineyards where we will discuss the history of the Willamette Valley, Duck Pond Cellars and our viticultural practices. Next, you’ll enjoy a full seated tasting where your wine educator will lead you through a flight of our small lot wines, each expertly paired with a fine selection of hors d'oeuvres. From vineyard to glass, this experience will broaden your knowledge of Oregon wine and provide you with valuable tools for pairing Duck Pond wines in your own kitchen. We welcome groups of 2-8 guests for this experience; groups smaller than eight may be combined with other guests, but the total group size will not exceed eight guests. Approximately 90 minutes.
$40 per person; advance reservations required.
Available booking times:Fridays at 11:00 a.m., Saturdays and Sundays at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
