If you are someone who loves saving a buck while sipping a nice glass of wine, read on. It seems that Alaska Airlines has partnered with the Oregon Wine Board and Travel Oregon, a travel and tourism website from the Oregon Tourism Commission, to create a new program called “Oregon Wines Fly Free.”
Any traveler with a return ticket on Alaska Airlines, flying in and out of Portland, Eugene, Medford, Redmond or Walla Walla airport can now bring an entire case of Oregon wine back as checked luggage – for free.
The timing of the program, September 10 through November 20, nicely coincides with Oregon wine country’s fall harvest – which is a great time to visit because of the many harvest-related events and activities throughout the region.
But, best of all, if you show your Alaska Airlines boarding pass within a week of your arrival you can receive complimentary tastings from more than 190 participating local wineries.
Interested in checking out wines from one of the world’s top producers? Then plan your trip by searching Oregon wineries according to your varietal preference.
And remember to find your flights on Fly.com. Right now you can get a roundtrip flight from San Francisco to Portland, on Alaska Airlines during the Oregon Wines Fly Free promotion, for as low as $138.
