Traveling by bike will allow you to breathe in all the beauty this region has to offer.

 

About Wine de Roads

We are excited to share our love of this valley with all of you!

Phil and Lisa moved their family to a small country home tucked in the Chehalem Valley in 2016.  They had no idea how much they would fall in love with the area and it's fine wines.  

Being adventurers at heart and wanting to provide visiting family and friends a distinct experience, they started exploring the Chehalem Valley wine scene by bike.  They soon discovered that cycling through this area, allowed them to savor and better appreciate the sights, sounds and flavors of this region.

What was rooted in their love of cycling and wine, has branched to sharing this unique adventure with you!

FAQ

Why Choose Wine de Roads for your Wine Country Bike Tour?

Wine de Roads is owned and operated by a couple who lives in and loves everything the Chehalem Valley has to offer.  We are a small company that prides ourselves on giving you a unique, unforgettable Oregon wine tasting experience.

Where do we meet for our tour?

Tours begin from our shop, located in the Dundee Hills AVA, 4 miles west of Newberg, Oregon.

What is the difficulty and distance of the bike tours?

Routes we ride are geared towards “Energetic Beginners”, are mainly flat with a few rolling hills and will have  sections of gravel depending on the route we take for the day.  The total distance we travel is between 8 and 12 miles at a leisurely pace so you can enjoy the sights as we ride.  Winery stops are about every 4-5 miles, but we will make a few extra stops along the way to share more about the area.  The van will pick all riders up after our last stop and drive you back to the shop. If you want a higher level of difficulty or more miles, please contact us and we can do our best to set up a custom tour for you!

Are there wine tasting fees and how much do they cost?

Wine tasting fees vary from $10 to $35 per person per winery. In most cases you can share a tasting (one glass) with another member of your group and many wineries will reimburse your tasting fee if you purchase bottles or join their wine club.  

Is there van support for the tour in case I do not want to ride the whole day?

Our support van is always nearby. If for any reason you are unable or don't want to continue by bike, the van can pick you up. The van will also pick up any wine purchases made throughout the day and have them ready for you when you return to the shop.
