"What a fabulous experience!We were chauffeured down I-5 to four unique wineries, entertained with antidotes about each, learned about wine making and the terroir process, ate a delicious lunch and tasted numerous local wines. A "must do" trip for anyone who enjoys wine." Mary and Tony, Eugene, OR.
"My wife and I spent a memorable Wine Tour day with Kevin of Vine2Wine yesterday, August 8, 2015. We visited Brooks, Bethel Heights, Bryn Mawr and Walter Scott wineries. Each produced Pinot and each had a world class view paired with an interesting story. From generational family business to "decided this my calling" each stop was memorable. To top the day Kevin served a world class selection of cheese, bread, salami and trimmings for lunch. Our expectations were far exceeded and we went home with a case of tasty Pinot Noir to remember the day. If you are serious about wine and want to learn more, this is your day trip!" Jeff, Birmingham, AL.
"We have been on over a dozen tours throughout the world, but we have never been on one as specialized for us as this one. With prompting Kevin asked us about any special dietary needs. He graciously asked what varietals we were interested in tasting. Being Pinot Noir lovers he took us to the Eola-Amity Hills. We went to four amazing wineries, where tasted wine of barely, discussed wine making with owners and made personal connections with the inters where we were treated like family. None of this would have been possible without the help of Kevin, our tour guide. If you love wine we highly recommend going on the Vine2Wine tour and experiencing Oregon wine country." Aurora, Portland, OR.
"After looking forward to our wine excursion, we were not disappointed. It was a very full day and well planned. Kevin researched and chose wineries that were best suited for us. The transportation was very comfortable. We enjoyed our day touring the Umpqua Valley vineyards and wine area with Kevin who was knowledgeable and informative. Each winery visited was a unique experience that featured some delicious and new wines for tasting. Kevin’s passion and enthusiasm for the area and winemakers genuinely showed.We enjoyed fantastic Oregon wines and a memorable day! Best of all we had a great time." Dick and Beth, Eugene, OR.
"New to wine appreciation, Kevin helped me identify the unique Oregonian Pinot characteristics and the geological attributes that contribute to them. Our experience was not only educational, but enjoyable - Kevin provides entertaining stories to go along with his knowledge of the region. The ride to the vineyards is scenic and comfortable, yielding an all-around great experience in wine tasting. If you're interested in tasting the unique Pinots from the Eola-Amity Hills area, call Oregon Vine2Wine." Marc, Richmond, VA.
"Living in Northern California and familiar with wine tour companies, I was impressed with my initial phone call to Oregon Vine2Wine. Kevin took the time to ask me a number of questions about my previous experiences with Oregon wines, what pinot noir characteristics I enjoyed, and based on those things identified an area of Oregon wine country to visit. He picked a combination of small boutique wineries and larger, more well known names in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. They were all great places, and I happily had a case of memorable Pinots to take home and enjoy. More than just a car and driver, Oregon Vine2Wine is an experience!" Mary, San Francisco, CA.
"Oregon Vine2Wine gave me and my wife a once in a lifetime tour of four wineries in the Roseburg area. We met the owners of Delfino, Hillcrest and Reustle Prayer Rock during our intimate tastings. It was amazing hearing their stories and getting treated like we are apart of their family. We learned about the unique terroir of the Umpqua Valley, got great food/wine pairing suggestions and now know many of the variables involved in wine making. If you like wine and you want to learn more about it I highly recomment this tour." James, Naples, FL.
"The Vine 2 Wine tour was a fantastic behind-the-scenes look at the OregonPinot Noir industry. I spent the better part of a day visiting wineries,
meeting winemakers, tasting juice three days from press, barrel tastings with a sommelier/winemaker and an extensive tour of two different AVA's. They were all a part of my day with tour guide Kevin Kayfez on a trip from Eugene to Portland. I found Kevin to be knowledgeable, pleasurable and very much enjoyed the time we spent together. I left with a greater appreciation for Oregon Pinot Noir winemakers and their craft." Scott, Philadelphia, PA.
"What a special day! Kevin is the ultimate wine guide and teacher. It was a day full of excellent wine in intimate gatherings with the vintners. We thoroughly enjoyed each vineyard and Kevin provided a perfect picnic lunch to top the day. We got to take in all the beauty of the Eola-Amity Hills on this wonderful day trip and can't wait to do it again! We would highly recommend Kevin to anyone--from the wine expert to someone who is just learning about wine. He'll meet you wherever you're at. Thank you, Kevin! Cheers!" Ann, Eugene, OR.
"One if the best aspects of our trip to Oregon was our tour with Kevin. He introduced us to some of the best pinots we've had! He picked us up at our hotel and we had an educational drive up to our first stop, Bethel Heights. We tried some delicious wines and enjoyed the lovely views. Kevin also helped us discern the nuances we were experiencing in each bottle and vintage we tried. We are now believers in terroir! Our next stop was Walter Scott- it was an incredible experience meeting and talking with the wine makers. We met both Ken and Erica- they were gracious and fun hosts- not to mention they make some excellent wine! We were able to partake in several barrel tastings for both Pinots and Chards. Luckily, we found that were willing to ship our wine home for us:) Our third stop was at St Innocent- they are a somewhat larger winey with excellent views. The wines here were wonderful. We ended up with a few bottles from the 2011 and 2012 vintage. Kevin was getting very accurate at predicting which ones would be our favorite. We really enjoyed his insight and expertise. Following our third stop, we headed over to our final destination, Evesham Wood. We had a lovely picnic lunch prepared- meats, cheese, veggies- as well as bread fresh from the bakery and raspberries picked from his back yard! After our lunch, we met the wine maker at Evesham- Erin. He poured some of their 2012 pinots, as well as a couple of his own label, Hayden Fig. These wines were excellent- especially at the price point!I'm very glad we decided to take this wine tour, as it opened us up to a whole new area that we had previously passed by. Kevin was friendly, informative and introduced us to some fantastic wine. If you have the opportunity, book a tour with Kevin! It was one the of highlights of our trip." Jackson, Atlanta, GA.
