Come explore Red Ridge Farms

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - West Linn Adult Community Center has planned an excursion to Red Ridge Farms this coming Wednesday. Sign up by calling the center at 503-557-4704.

The West Linn Adult Community Center will take a bus tour to Red Ridge Farms next week.

The trip, scheduled for Wednesday, is open to anyone for a cost of $10. Wine tasting may require an additional fee, and lunch costs are paid individually.

Red Ridge is located in the beautiful wine country of the Willamette Valley outside Dayton, Oregon. It’s billed as a “destination for the senses.” The farm itself boasts vineyards, an olive grove and mill, a lavender field, a nursery, a guest cottage, gardens, pottery and store. And if the weather cooperates, the views will be spectacular.

The plan is to board the bus at the WLACC at 9:30 a.m. and head toward Dayton. We will tour the estate, taste some wine, taste some olive oil, and go to a local restaurant for lunch. The bus will return to the center between 2 to 3 p.m.

If you would like to join us on this adventure, sign up and pay the $10 transportation fee at the WLACC’s front desk.
