In order to limit exposure and create a safer event for all, this year event guests will receive access to one of two winery routes. Your ticket to the event includes:

  • A “License to Taste” passport with free wine tastings at four Willamette Valley wineries on August 1st
  • Fun activities and vendors for you and your dog at each winery
  • A 45 minute visit at each of the four wineries on your route
  • A commemorative Govino wine glass
  • Two complimentary tasting cards valid at all eight participating wineries during the month of August

Once you have purchased a ticket, you will receive an email on July 30 with your route assignment. This includes the start and end times for each winery visit within the route option you select. If you are planning to meet with friends or family members at Canines Uncorked, please purchase all tickets at one time to guarantee that you will be placed on the same route schedule.

Tickets: Tickets are $40; $25 of each ticket is tax-deductible.

Event Activities

The “License to Taste” passport is only valid on August 1st during event hours (11am-3pm). We understand that you will not be able to visit all participating wineries the day of the event. To provide you an opportunity to visit some of the wineries at another time, you will receive two complimentary tasting cards each good for one tasting at any participating winery. Cards are valid during the month of August. Please note that activities from the event will not be setup after August 1st. Also, some wineries are not dog-friendly (with the exception of the event day). Please call ahead or check the winery’s website before bringing you canine friend with you. Due to COVID-19, many wineries now require reservations prior to visiting. Make sure to check each winery’s website and let them know you want to use your Canines Uncorked tasting card prior to booking your visit.
