I craft our wines at the beautful Bjornson Winery in the Eola-Amirty Hills. This winery is located in wine country among vineyards, 20 minutes from Salem and McMinnville. As pictured above, this is a wonderful environment with views to the east on the Willamette Valley and the Cascade Mountains.

Tasting flights vary based on your preferences, but tend to include a sampling of 6 wines, ciders and/or vermouth. Tastings are free for Club members or otherwise $35 per person, which is gladly refunded with a wine purchase. Most visits last about 60 minutes but cellar tours and wine making conversations can easily extend the tasting (if you wish).

To make a reservation, please reach out via email or fill out the form below.

More info:

  • Electric vehicle charging station available on-site for most EV models.
  • A charcuterie/cheese/nut/dried fruit board for two, and hummus plate are available from the tasting room, or  feel free to bring your own snacks or food. 
  • Dogs must be on a leash and under control at all times. Additionally, all dogs (excluding Service Dogs as defined by the American With Disabilities Act) are to remain outside in either the front patio/lawn area or the back picnic table area. No more than two dogs are allowed per party.

Close-by Recommendations: For an exceptional culinary experience after your Sun Break wine tasting, try the Cozy Taberna in Salem. Spectacular and creative dishes (I mean, really spectacular), great service and ambiance, and great people. I have also been fortunate to meet the culinary and service team, and I am very impressed. Note: the address is Liberty Street, but the restaurant is tucked away in a historic, very cool alley to the west of the Street. Call them if you are lost : )

Winery tasting rooms close early and you can continue your exploration of Oregon wines at the Old Zen Wine Bar in Salem. What a cool wine lounge! Such a great vibe. Nate is just the best host and he curates over 100 Oregon wines and other craft beverages. It’s also a great bottle shop with reasonable retail pricing on bottles to go.  

The other great wine bar close by is The Valkyrie Wine Tavern in Independence. Savannah has a broad selection of both Oregon and International wines. She has a phenomenal palate and you can explore great classics along with the most unusual wine and grape varietal you’ve never heard of (yes, I have been blown away by some of these). And if her wine knowledge doesn’t somehow impress you, her charm and personality will. You will wish this wine bar was in your neighborhood : ) The Valkyrie is also a great bottle shop with reasonable retail pricing on bottles to go.
