Before there were microbrews or artisan coffee in Oregon- there was St Josef’s Winery. St Josef’s planted their first vineyards in 1978 and had their first (legal) vintage was in 1983; becoming one of the first 30 wineries in Oregon. Since then the Oregon wine industry has boomed becoming the fourth largest wine state with over 600 wineries.
Proprietors Josef & Lilli grew up in Europe and met in the German city of Chicago. Since founding the winery they have created a bit of European style hospitality. They believe it is important to make nice wines along with hospitality with a lighthearted approach.
St Josef’s grows and makes wine from its 5 estate vineyards including Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Syrah and Gewurztraminer. Our philosophy is to make distinctive food-friendly wines and a line of reserve wines for special occasions like Tuesdays. St Josef’s has been recognized for its sustainability with both Salmon Safe and LIVE (Low Impact Viticulture and Enology) certification.
The Bike Ride & BBQ takes place on Sunday May 28th, (Memorial Weekend) at 11am. Lunch & Music will be at the winery from 12pm -5 pm. Bike Ride, Tasting & Lunch is $20.
Ala carte lunches for non- riders and wine will be available all day.
