Tour Coastal Wineries on Your Cannon Beach Wine Tasting Trip
Oregon’s Coastal Wine
When visitors think about Oregon’s wine country, most imagine the rolling hills of the Willamette Valley. The Willamette Valley is a premiere wine destination and is home to over two-thirds of the state’s wineries and vineyards. But did you know that there are a number of quaint wineries near Cannon Beach, too? These wineries line the coast, stretching from Seaside all the way to Coos Bay. Visiting them is an excellent way to see (and taste!) the best of Oregon.
There are a lot of towns along the Oregon Coast worth exploring, but Cannon Beach is a preferred destination for many people. This quaint coastal town is packed with charm. Use Arch Cape Inn as your starting point, then get in the car and begin your journey to these coastal wineries!
Buddha Kat Winery
Just north of Cannon Beach is Buddha Kat Winery in Seaside, OR. This facility boasts a quaint tasting room where you can sample a variety of red and white wines. They even have award-winning fruit wines!
Nehalem Bay Winery
To the south of Cannon Beach is one of our favorites destinations: Nehalem Bay Winery. This gorgeous and historic winery welcomes visitors from all over. The unique tasting room features cool stone floors and brick walls, and the aroma of the surrounding cinnamon brooms fills the air! Nehalem Bay also serves Tillamook cheese and crackers to accompany your wine.
The Flying Dutchman Winery
The Flying Dutchman is another must-see. This family-owned winery enjoys a breathtaking location along the coast, where salty air gives the wine a unique Oregon flavor. This winery is recognized throughout the state and has won many medals and awards. Make sure you try their famous riesling!
