BROOKS WINERY

With jaw-dropping views of the Cascade Range and Willamette Valley floor, Brooks Winery is a special spot for experiencing one of nature’s grandest events. Brooks has a full day of festivities planned—outdoor morning yoga, a sparkling wine brunch and presentation by Professor Ethan Siegel, an astrophysicist from Lewis & Clark College, and an eclipse viewing with wood-fired oven pizzas paired with wine. If you’re itching to get a jumpstart on the fun, there’s an option to camp the night before in the vineyards with a BBQ supper, live music and vineyard walk with winemaker Chris Williams.
