For one delightful weekend we’re bringing together wine lovers, winemakers, winegrowers, and chefs to celebrate the finale of the season - the completion of harvest. You are invited to join us.

Over this 3-day celebration, multiple events are offered throughout the Columba Gorge to celebrate the completion of this year’s harvest and gather in thanks. Join us for an event, or spend the whole weekend immersing yourself in this rare place.
