Six festival events showcase the bounty of Northwest wine and cuisine in Cannon Beach, Oregon.

Four days of wine and culinary experiences in Cannon Beach, Oregon make Savor Cannon Beach one of the most unique festivals focusing on the bounty of the Northwest. Festival events combine lively wine tastings with programs that focus on specific wine varietals and Northwest wine regions.


Best of the Northwest

We call it our Thursday Night Throwdown. We've selected 12 award-winning or notable wines representing different wine growing regions of Oregon and Washington and let you vote for the top wines of the evening. This event is a great way to discover new wines and varietals while you increase your awareness of Northwest wine regions. The evening also includes a selection of light bites. Location: Tolovana Inn (3400 S. Hemlock) Price: $40


Winemaker's Premium Pours

Five Northwest wineries have agreed to open up their cellars and share three special wines. Offerings will include library wines, verticals, horizontals or reserve wines. This is a drop-in wine tasting event where you can taste some special wines and meet the winemakers. Location: Tolovana Inn (3400 S. Hemlock) Price: $40

Wine & Gallery Walk

Visit participating Cannon Beach galleries, each hosting a Northwest winery and serving light appetizers. It's a fun evening of art, wine and food. Includes a souvenir Savor Cannon Beach glass. Location: Check-in begins at 5:30pm at the Community Hall (207 N Spruce) Price: $40


Taste Like an Expert

Learn to taste wine like a expert in this educational program with our favorite wine competition facilitators Hank and Nancy Sauer. You'll learn the basics of wine tasting, wine terminology and etiquette for the tasting room or festival. Participants with Wine Walk tickets can check-in and pick up your glass at the end of this event. This is a sit down program, so you'll want to arrive on time and we kindly request no fragrances be worn. Location: Tolovana Inn (3400 S. Hemlock) Price: $20

Savor Cannon Beach Wine Walk

Taste wines from approximately 40 Northwest wineries pouring tastings as you make the rounds of Cannon Beach art galleries, shops, restaurants and hotels. Participating wineries represent the major wine growing regions in Oregon and Washington, including Willamette Valley, eastern Washington and southern Oregon. Ticket purchase includes a souvenir Savor Cannon Beach glass. Proceeds from this event benefit Clatsop Animal Assistance, supporting our county animal shelter. Location: Check-in begins at 11am at Coaster Theatre (108 N Hemlock) Price: $40


Gold Medal Wines & The Battle of the Bites

This great event will tempt you to stay an extra day! You'll taste 12 Gold Medal winning wines from the SavorNW Wine Awards selected the previous week by some of the top wine judges in the Northwest. This event will also feature the Battle of the Bites with "bites" prepared by area chefs and restaurants; and your vote will determine the winner. Location: Tolovana Inn (3400 S. Hemlock) Price: $40
