The Great Eclipse Didn’t Disappoint at Eola Hills!
(Salem, OR) – With the Eclipse behind us, Eola Hills still has a lot to be proud of. Four days full of activities for families, couples, and friends, the entire weekend was a huge success! The weekend started off with a concert from Nu Shooz, who had people up on their feet dancing the night away. This was followed by Eclipse educational talks, serenaded farm to table dinner by Patrick Lamb, and a Patrick Lamb concert. To finish the night, a movie in the vineyard was shown for all guests. As the crowd started to pour in Sunday, sunrise yoga, book signings by Melanie Windridge, a Quarterflash concert, and a s’mores food truck during guided stargazing was offered. Campers crowded in with their RV’s and tents to enjoy the entire weekend experience.
With a wake up call at 5:00 AM, the morning of the eclipse, breakfast was held for guests, Portland Children’s Museum came with activities for kids, and there was a barbeque lunch provided by Adam’s Ribs. The weekend wrapped up with a concert from 5 Guys Names Moe who were the perfect act to follow the amazing experience of seeing a Total Solar Eclipse.
People were blown away with the amount of preparation, hard work and commitment that went into pulling off an event like this. With a huge number of thank you emails pouring in, here are just a few to highlight the success of the event:
“The venue was fantastic, great camping, incredible food (wow the barbecue!) incredible hospitality, great bands and how could we not mention Great Wine! We just cannot thank you enough! EOLA Winery made our Total Eclipse Experience one that we will never forget! I personally think that it could not have been any better! We left the vineyard yesterday and are at Mallard Creek for a week in Lebanon. I must admit it was bittersweet leaving the vineyard. I know we live in Southern California, but would love to be on your mailing list for next years upcoming events! Thanks again for everything!” – Claudia
“I hope you’ve managed to get some rest since all the excitement has died down around the winery! Deb and I just wanted to tell you again how much we enjoyed the weekend, and how much we appreciate all the effort that went into making it such a special and unique occasion. We both look forward to visiting as wine club members, and hopefully we’ll see you again!” – David Broome
“Wanted to send you this thank you letter for such a GREAT!! Experience at your Winery. Our first phone call was just the start!! Attention to detail, professionalism, and effort to always take care of the customer was outstanding. Your staff was so friendly and constantly wanted to take care of us. They all made us feel like family. The Winery was such a pleasant place, and you had it so very well organized. I have been in the event planning Business for almost 25 years of my life. Have owned some restaurants, and worked for Patrick Lamb Productions for 10 years. You knocked it out of the BALL PARK for your first major Event!!! Not an easy thing to do. Look forward to more events in the near future at Eola, VERY,VERY Happy!! Seeing the Eclipse was just icing on the cake!! Thank you so much!!” – Victoria Lessley
