Happy Earth Day! The Oregon Electric Byways partners would like to invite you to Celebrate Earth day this week in Oregon’s Wine Country, home to the Willamette Valley Electric Byway, a network of West Coast Electric Highway fast chargers and charging stations at key wineries, restaurants, and other local businesses along the way!
Join a handful of Oregon’s premier and most sustainable wine country destinations along the Willamette Valley Electric Byway – Elk Cove Vineyards, Sokol Blosser Winery, Stoller Family Estate, Winderlea Vineyard and Winery, and The Joel Palmer House Restaurant – to celebrate and learn more about electric vehicle tourism and accessibility (Plug & Pinot Tour Map – developed in partnership with PlugShare).
Plug & Pinot kicks off on Earth Day, April 22, and runs through April 27
BONUS: I will be taking Portland Trail Blazers Ambassador and former NBA star Jerome Kersey on the tour in the Oregon Electric Byways Leaf on Thursday, April 24th!
