Up the coast in Oregon's Willamette Valley, the annual Wine Country Thanksgiving will be held on November 28–30.

More than 100 wineries participate, and festivities include tastings of new releases and older vintages as well as barrel tastings, specialty foods and sales of limited-run wines. If you're visiting Portland over Thanksgiving, or you have family in town, this is always a terrific way to enjoy the holiday weekend.
