WineryHunt is designed to boost tasting room traffic and sales
WineryHunt is a membership program that incentivizes wine-lovers to visit a select group of unique wineries throughout Oregon
20 Featured Wineries in 2021
2021 will feature 20 unique wine experiences throughout Oregon. We carefully choose these wineries based on your unique offerings, having a new tasting room, etc.
Benefits to Members
Featured wineries agree to provide club members waived tastings and a 10% discount on purchases during the time that your winery is featured. There is no other cost to be a Featured Winery.
300 Club Member Cap
Membership is limited to 300 Oregon wine super-fans. Members learn about WineryHunt through social media, word of mouth, and the existing WineryHunt Oregon program. Membership sales begin November 15 and sell out quickly thanks to a lengthy wait list.
One Year To Visit Your Winery
Members can only enjoy their benefits at the 2021 featured wineries anytime in the year. This is a temporary model to WineryHunt to allow members ample time to make an appointment with you.
What Wineries Say
It was a wonderful experience with Winery Hunt. We felt that the customers that came to us through the program were quality guests and many were visiting us for the first time.-Kramer Vineyards, Oregon
Jody Wrigley, J Wrigley Vineyards
We had a great turnout! Over half purchased at least 1 bottle and 8 joined our club which is super exciting to us! We would love to do it again next year. -Patton Valley Vineyards, Oregon
The program was a HUGE SUCCESS!! We saw 220 WineryHunt members in our featured month and had a conversion rate of over 75%. We love what you're doing and you're marketing this to the audience we want to drive to our space! -Bookwalter Winery, Washington
What Members Say
We are VERY much enjoying WineryHunt. We have lived in the city for years and never really enjoyed wine country. This has pushed us to do it and we are thrilled!
-Jamie, WineryHunt Oregon Member
This is such a fun experience. I’m so glad my friends and I joined. This is the once-a-month event we all love.
-Dawn, WineryHunt Oregon Member
It's great in that I'm getting introduced to tasting rooms and vineyards I've never been. I really look forward to my monthly adventure!
-Cara, WineryHunt Member
Love it! We have never wine tasted in most of these featured regions before, so it is fun trying new places.
-Jennifer, WineryHunt Member
My friends and I joined the club not knowing what to expect. We are thrilled so far. Finding some places and wines we never even knew existed. Can't wait for next month!

Frequently Asked Questions
What do wineries pay to participate?
There is no cost to be a Featured Winery beyond the waived tasting fees and 10% discount to members in your featured quarter. You can expect to have your reservations booked solid during your featured month. 95% of featured wineries say they would gladly participate again based on sales and club signups.
How much is a membership for consumers?
The 2021 membership cost is $75 for repeat members due to Covid-19 disruptions in 2020. The cost for new members is $125.
How do members prove they are in the club?
Members will show a metal membership card with unique member ID # when they arrive in your tasting room. You will be provided a list of all members and can cross them off this list as they arrive over the quarter. They can be asked to indicate their membership when making a reservation as well
How many people is a membership card good for, and how many times can they visit?
Members show a metal membership card to tasting room staff when they arrive, and this membership card is good for just that person--- so while a couple could split a tasting, you don't need to give a waived tasting to +1s. Members may only enjoy their benefits once during 2021, although hopefully they join your wine club and visit many more times!
What is the demographic of the members?
95% are Oregon residents living in affluent neighborhoods, mostly in Portland Metro and upper Willamette Valley. Equal split of Millenials, Gen X and Boomers. All are serious Oregon wine lovers and buyers.
Why did you move to featured the yearly model rather than a featured month?
This is a temporary change based on Covid-19 and nearly every winery now having an appointment model. Spreading member visitation over a year rather than one month ensures members have ample opportunity to give you a visit and keeps the flow of traffic more regular.

WineryHunt is run by Vinbound Marketing in Carlton, Oregon
Vinbound started in 2014 as a website development and digital marketing company for wineries, and in the last six years I've had the pleasure of working with hundreds of wineries throughout North America. My clients constantly ask for help in growing their tasting room traffic and club memberships. While we can play with social media campaigns, SEO and improvements to website design, it often takes more incentive to get consumers in the door the first time around.
WineryHunt Oregon launched in 2017 as an answer to this problem--- a marketing program with built-in membership that incentivizes visits to wineries via limited-time benefits. Members receive regular emails profiling different Oregon wine tasting regions and wineries, and members have just one month (or year in 2021 due to Covid) to visit the featured wineries within that region. WineryHunt Oregon has been a big success for both wineries and consumers, with wineries reporting amazing turnout and strong sales and customers thrilled to be guided through the best of Oregon Wine Country. We expanded to Washington in 2019, Sonoma in 2020, and continue to refine the program based on winery and consumer feedback.
