Begin your day right
Start your morning at Annette’s Westgate Cafe in West Salem to fuel up with traditional breakfast offerings like their homemade biscuits and gravy.
Hiking + wine = “wiking”
Head west on Hwy. 22 towards Rickreall (99W), to experience “wiking” – a cross between wine tasting and hiking. Follow the blue wine signs to Eola Hills Wine Cellars. Take a self-guided hike through the vineyard hillsides while enjoying award-winning pinot noir; and the trails are the perfect spot for your dog too.
Pro Tip: Wiking trails are by reservation only
Experiences at Left Coast Estate
A few miles north on Hwy. 99W you can choose between four different experiences at Left Coast Estate including the Left Coast Estate Experience where groups can ride in a 1950 Flatbed Chevy Truck or a 1982 BJ Cruiser while enjoying a variety of Left Coast Estate’s tasting flights. Learn about Left Coasts’ commitment to sustainability while enjoying the views of 70 acres of old-growth oak forest. Finish your afternoon with lunch and try the wood-fired pizza (available seasonally in the tasting room).
Polk County Museum
Finish your afternoon exploring the history at the Polk County Museum in Rickreall. Learn about the Native Calapooya tribe that originally occupied Polk County and enjoy exhibits of agriculture and logging.
Crush Wine Bar
End the night just down the road at Crush Wine Bar in Monmouth. Choose between small plates or full dinner options like their fillet mignon or pan-seared salmon.
Pro Tip: Book a private tour through Crush and ride in style in their stretch limousine for a day of wine tasting.
