Kids don't get all the Easter fun
In Yamhill County, kids aren’t the only ones who get to hunt for prizes on Easter.
For a few years, Youngberg Vineyard has hosted an adult Easter egg hunt at the vineyard outside McMinnville. Instead of
eggs, wine bottles filled with freebies are hidden throughout the property.
“They’re wine bottles with prizes – free wine, free wine tastings, free glasses of wine, free overnight at the inn,” Innkeeper Becky Loney explained. “They’re all different.”
Loney said that the event has turned into a fun Easter tradition for the childless and empty-nesters who still want to have a little Easter themed fun.
“Most of the Easter stuff is so geared around kids. We try to do something for adults so that those adults that don’t have any children who want to get away from that have a place to go,” she said.
Youngberg’s event starts at 1 p.m. on Easter Sunday (March 27) at the winery (10660 SW Youngberg Hill Rd., McMinnville), and an RSVP is required (email here to do so).
Willakenzie Estate will host their own Grown-Up Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 26 at their winery (19143 NE Laughlin Rd., Yamhill), with pizza from Newberg’s Renaissance Pizza, chocolates from Smitten Artisan Truffles and tea from Portland’s Spice & Tea Exchange on hand. Tickets for either of two sessions, starting at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., are $25 (with a $10 discount for Willakenzie club members) and are extremely limited according to the event website.
