Participating wineries will be included in promotional listings on the OWB website and social media as well as highlighted in marketing efforts undertaken by Travel Oregon and Alaska Airlines.
The Oregon Wine Board is once again partnering with Alaska Airlines and Travel Oregon to bring back the successful "Oregon Wines Fly Free" program starting May 1. Of the various regions that participate in similar Alaska Airlines programs, Oregon is the only region with a statewide program effective for an entire year!
Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members will be allowed to have thier tasting room fee waived at all participating wineries, and can check one case of Oregon wine for free on all domestic flights from participating Oregon airports (Medford, Redmond, Eugene and Portland, plus Walla Walla). Additionally, passengers traveling from participating Oregon airports on a direct Alaska Airlines flight to British Columbia are also eligible. Holiday weekends and special events are excluded.
This program is open to all Oregon wineries. There is no fee to participate but registration is required. To participate, click the "Register Now" link below, enter your winery information and agree to the program requirements.

How You Can Make The Program A Success
Who can participate?
Any Oregon winery that commits to the simple requirements noted above and registers with the required details may participate.
Will this apply to each customer who is flying on Alaska?
This program is only available for Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members who can show an inbound boarding pass for a participating Oregon airport and Walla Walla. Qualified participants will recieve a waived tasting fee at participating wineries and will be allowed one case to be checked free of charge. So, if a group comes in and each person has a proper Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan proof and boarding pass, they will be allowed to participate.
How Many Cases Can They Check For Free?
Only one case per person can be checked free of charge. Additional cases will be charged the regular baggage fee.
If a passenger connects with other airlines, can they still check the case of Oregon wine at no charge?Yes, unless the case is retrieved from baggage and rechecked at any stopover, such as when connecting to international flights. Generally, the case will fly for free to all 50 states.
What Oregon airports are participating in this program?
Portland, Medford, Eugene, Redmond are the airports served by Alaska Airlines and all qualify for the program. Because there are Oregon wineries near the Walla Walla airport, it is included in the Oregon program.
Does a passenger need to fly in and out of the same airport to take advantage of this offer?
No, as long as they fly in and out of the noted Oregon airports, or Walla Walla, they are eligible to take advantage of the waived tasting fee and complimentary case check.
Is this a permanent program?
No, this program is only valid for one year. We are close to securing a start date, which we hope is May 1, and will keep you informed as to the official effective dates of the program. Continuation of the program will be assessed based on the success of this second effort.
