Brought our Canadian friends and had an AWESOME tasting with "Mac". You are offered quite a varied selection to taste from; Mac was very attentive and communicative and willing to answer questions he is just a really nice guy. What a great time we had! It was very educational too. We stayed TWO HOURS and enjoyed a fantastic cheese plate,... More

We stopped here to sample the wines and check out the Christmas shop. The wines were good, but there were a TON of fruit flies. I realize this is hard to combat when you're processing your wines right behind the tasting room but it was a bit gross and distracting. I know they can't help it but perhaps a future... More

This has been standard destination for the last four years or so. The wine continues to be of first quality and the staff most knowledgeable and helpful about their subject. This year they had free pies. As usual, I spent more than I had intended. Chuckles.

Good winery, although nothing special. A couple of good wines although expensive to buy. Funny Christmas shop in the back. Not the most friendly staff member doing the tasting...

We stopped by Shafer Vineyards this past Saturday after tasting at Tualatin Vineyards, on our way to Montinore Vineyards. The setting is beautiful with rolling forested hills and vineyards. The tasting room is rustic and small but the wine glasses they serve their tastings in are very, very small, making it very difficult to swirl the one. It was very... More

Visited over the Memorial Day weekend; first day under new and eager owners. Not to worry, the Christmas shop is still there (and we did buy an ornament). We tasted 5 wines and ended up buying a bottle which we took back to our hotel. We also ordered a cheese plate, which was oh my gosh just wonderful. Took our... More

Couldn't resist also buying a Christmas ornament from her amazing and well stocked shop. We had a little picnic on the front porch with a little wine to boot and enjoyed it immensly. We will...

Nice, friendly winery. I've been to wineries in California and the Midwest. I am not a huge wine drinker, so I couldn't tell you how the wine ranks. My opinion is its good the Christmas holiday wine is very tasty. Light, sweet and the spices used makes it a nice speciality wine. The people and owner of the winery are... More

As the owner of an internet chat group, I had the occasion to visit Shafer Vineyard as a part of a group function. Miki Shafer was more than cordial. She welcomed us with open arms and personally gave us a guided tour of the facility. Her product, in my opinion, is without compare ! Keep up the good work Shafer... More
