WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO ATTEND OREGON PINOT CAMP?
Members of the wine trade who are invited by a participating OPC winery.
HOW DO I GET INVITED TO OPC?
Each of our 52 OPC wineries has the opportunity to submit a short list of candidates. Be sure to talk to any OPC wineries whose wines you are showing in your restaurant or selling in your wine shop. You may also ask distributors of those wines to suggest you to one of the wineries for consideration.
HOW MUCH DOES OPC COST?
There is a $190 registration fee. Campers are also responsible for travel expenses to Oregon, lodging, and transportation to wine country.
WHAT MEALS ARE PROVIDED?
Picnic dinner and wine tasting Saturday evening. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Sunday and Monday. Lunch on Tuesday (Day Three).
WHAT TRANSPORTATION IS PROVIDED?
Campers are responsible for transportation from the airport to wine country on Saturday. OPC provides transportation to all OPC events on Saturday evening (opening reception), Sunday, and Monday. Campers are responsible for transportation to Day Three activities (Tuesday). All major rental car companies are available at PDX.
WHAT CLOTHES SHOULD I BRING?
Dress for camp is Wine Country Casual. Bring sturdy shoes for vineyard workshops. Bring layers for Oregon’s cool mornings to be shed as the day warms up, and be prepared with a hat in case we have a hot day in the vineyard.
WHAT IS THE WEATHER LIKE?
The average temperature in June is 74° for the high and 53° for the low with average precipitation of 1.48″. OPC takes place at the end of the month, so it is often warm. Because it’s Oregon, we prepare for cool weather and rain or extreme heat. Check the forecast before you pack!
WILL MY ALLERGIES KICK IN?
Yes, they sure will. Oregon’s grasses bring out the best of allergy symptoms. Bring your allergy medicine!
DO I HAVE TO STAY IN A PARTICULAR HOTEL?
No. However, transportation to OPC activities (which campers are required to take on Sunday and Monday) is provided from the eight OPC hotels only. We highly recommend staying in one of these eight hotels. If you choose to stay elsewhere, you will be assigned to one of the eight hotels for your bus pickup. You will receive instructions for where to meet your bus.
