We had an amazing time at the vineyard. John is extremely knowledgeable and our tour lasted a lot longer than the marketed time. The place is beautiful and has a very comfy country vibe. Our only complaint is that the smoked salmon we purchased at the vineyard was expired and one of the packages had some mold on it. Other than that we had an absolutely fantastic time!

We went to taste and discover wine from Oregon, but we came back with so much more. John, the owner, went out of his way to share his passion for winemaking. This visit to Helvetia winery is one of the highlights of our travel to Oregon
