The Oregon Wine Experience is a weeklong festival, at the Bigham Knoll Campus and at wineries and restaurants around the region, offers a celebration of all things wine. This year, the experience will take place August 22 to August 26. Start with the Medal Celebration on August 23, which offers small plates and award-winning wines from the Oregon Wine Competition.

Or indulge in an Ultimate Vintner Dinner, taking place throughout the month. The dinners, hosted by winery owners at their winery and vineyards, are multi-course meals with wine pairings and other experiences. Participating wineries include local favorites 2Hawk Vineyards & Winery, Troon Vineyard and Kriselle Cellars.

The Founders’ Barrel Auction, on August 24, features barrel tastings, lunch from Seven Feathers Casino Resort chef Mark Henry, and, of course, an auction. If you can’t get enough, on August 25 is the Miracle Auction and Salmon Bake, featuring dinner with an authentic salmon bake overseen by a chef from the Coquille Indian Tribe.

And finish off your weekend with tastings from more than 100 Oregon wineries at the Grand Tasting. More than 2,300 visitors come to the events, which over the past three years have raised more than $1.3 million for Children’s Miracle Network and Asante health care programs.
