We created a Facebook group while sitting in our fifth wheel in a McMinnville, Oregon campground on August 1, 2020. We thought it would be cool to have a group of people who could exchange info about where to go wine tasting…especially with an RV.
 

When we created the group we thought we’d have maybe 20 people join us. We misjudged that, by alot.

Our vision for this group remains the same as it did when we first created it. We prefer it to be consumer driven. People sharing their favorite wineries. Their latest finds. The new go to places. So as a group member by all means please keep posting and sharing all the great NW wines and winery info.
 

Winery owner members please feel free to share about your wineries…especially pics. 
 

We believe our page is a fun space to connect consumers with some awesome choices for NW wines. When you are searching for the places to visit or special wines you are looking for….just ask that question in the group. You’ll get a TON of valuable answers to pretty much anything you ask.
 

Finally…whatever role you play in NW wines…wine pourer, consumer, tasting room manager, vineyard guru, wine maker, wine owner or wine lover…thank you for being here. We appreciate you.

The Payment Processing Company Merchants Trust
We created Gravity Payments because thousands of hard-working business owners were being overcharged and underserved by credit card processors. Today, we serve over 13,000 merchants across America, saving them millions in fees and hours of frustration. Though we’ve grown substantially over the years, we treat each of our clients as if they’re our first client. We are devoted to complete transparency. We don’t confuse our community business owners with credit card gibberish or hide anything in the fine print. Instead, we strive to make credit card processing as simple as possible.
We owe our values-based philosophy to our founder, Dan Price. In 2004, it was his commitment to level the payment processing playing field that launched Gravity.
