Five of the Willamette Valley’s top food and wine destinations are coming together to offer visitors incentives and electric vehicle education during Earth Day Week 2014.

Oregon’s premier and most sustainable wine country destinations — Elk Cove Vineyards, Sokol Blosser Winery, Stoller Family Estate, Winderlea Vineyard and Winery, and The Joel Palmer House Restaurant — are celebrating Earth Day by driving awareness for the accessibility of electric vehicle chargers in the Willamette Valley.

Learn more about electric vehicle tourism in Oregon Wine Country while celebrating Earth Day from April 22-27. Each destination has electric vehicle chargers as they help drive awareness and build the infrastructure of electric vehicle tourism and accessibility.

Event attendees that complete a Plug & Pinot Passport by visiting all five destinations any time during the week-long event will be entered in a drawing to win an EV-Powered Wine Country Getaway.

On Saturday, April 26 from 12-4 p.m., each destination will have electric vehicles and representatives on site for event attendees to test ride and learn more about sustainable driving. Partners include Porsche, Tesla, Nissan, BMW and GM.

Finally, for those who attend the week-long event with their own electric vehicle, each participating winery will provide complimentary tastings and The Joel Palmer House Restaurant will offer a complimentary appetizer; dinner reservations for the restaurant can be made at

Full event details are available on Facebook.
