Salem, OR (PRWEB) December 14, 2009
Oregon’s newest wine tour operator is now taking reservations for tours to Oregon’s wine country. Grand Cru Wine Tours has drivers located throughout the Willamette Valley to guide trips. Tour organizers are eager to help plan a variety of tours.
Grand Cru Wine Tours is a small tour operator located in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley, specializing in small-group tours in a comfortable vehicle with guides who know the local wine scene. Grand Cru Wine Tours was founded on two guiding principles: service and sustainability. Exemplary service will be found throughout the journey. The focus on sustainability can be seen in many areas of the company, including a commitment to using local and recycled products as well as offsetting all vehicle emissions. For more on the sustainability policy, visit http://www.grandcruwinetors.com/pdf/sustainability_file.pdf.
All tours include visits to four wineries, gourmet appetizers, chocolates, and bottled water. Tours include 6 hours of touring the selected wineries and up to an hour of driving time before and after the tour. As Oregon is home to several amazing microbreweries, beer tours are available if one non-wine stop or a day without wine is needed. Beer tastings can be arranged on their own or with a meal. Sake and distillery stops can also be added to tours.
Grand Cru Wine Tours is owned and operated by Byron Williams, who first moved to the Willamette Valley ten years ago. "After living and working in the Willamette Valley," Williams states, "I saw the space and demand for an eco-friendly wine tour company where I could share my love of wine with people of any level of wine knowledge." Proud of the quality of wine in the Willamette Valey, Williams sees wine tourism as an integral part of the growing industry.
The Oregon wine industry has exploded since David Lett started planting vines in the Willamette Valley in 1965. Now, with around 400 wineries operating in the state, Grand Cru Wine Tours is here to help everyone find new favorites throughout Oregon's wine country.
