The spring brings many great things to the Oregon coast, including the return of Savor Cannon Beach. If you haven’t heard of the Savor event, some keywords include wine, food and good cause. This year’s Savor Cannon Beach is happening March 7-10 at the Tolovana Hall.
The weekend long fundraiser for Clatsop Animal Assistance has a lot of repeat participants. And who blames them for coming back year after year? The entire community shows up and it’s a great deal for people looking to try new regional wines. And this year there are some world renowned wineries participating including A to Z Wineworks, J. Scott Cellars, and Cannon Beach’s homegrown Puffin Wines.
The sell-out event gives locals and visitors alike a chance to enjoy wine from award winning Pacific Northwest wineries. The event organizers work tirelessly to make the even easy and fun. Tickets get you access to wine pours and events in a variety of locations including restaurants, galleries and shops. Plus you get to keep your glass as a souvenir.
The opening event, Best of the Northwest Throwdown, features eight regional wineries paired with culinary delights by local chef Jonathan Hoffman. The Throwdown introduces tasters to new Northwest wines. Friday is equally as special with five wineries opening up their cellars for library wines, verticals, horizontals and reserve wines. The Saturday Wine Walk features more than 40 wineries throughout Cannon Beach’s art galleries, restaurants and retail shops.
Savor Cannon Beach, supported grant funding, local sponsors and ticket sales, is a community staple. And don’t forget the perks; several local hotels are offering discounts for people travelling to the event. Organizers recommend getting advanced tickets as it sells out, fast, with many events limited to fewer than 150 people, although the Wine Walk can accommodate more people.
