We have traveled several times to Oregon from Utah just to get this awesome wine! All the wines are amazing and delicious. Our favorite is the Triple Berry. We have never had one we did not like. The customer service we received from the Winery Staff (Leslie in particular), has been above and beyond in excellence! We will continue to make our yearly trip for this fine wine.

Honeywood Winery is Oregon's oldest and is located in a great old brick building near downtown Salem. However, the vineyards that once surrounded it are long gone.

We stopped in here basically just to see it, and ended up buying three bottles of wine! They offer several kinds of wine and specialize in fruit wines, including the rather rare Mead.

The young man in the tasting area was extremely friendly and knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. The tasting sizes were good sized and all free, up to five per person.

They also have a nice selection of gifts and tasty food offerings, with free samples of many of the products.

I would recommend Honeywood Winery to anybody visiting Salem!

We were familiar with Honeywood wines when we lived in Oregon many years ago but had never visited their tasting room. On a recent visit to Salem from Arizona we decided to go and are so glad we did! It's a lovely gift shop/tasting room and our hostess Crystal was so much fun, hospitable and knowledgeable. Admittedly, fruit dessert wines will not be everyone's cup of tea (glass of wine :) but they are very delightfully different. There is a tasting list provided and one can choose any five to taste with absolutely no tasting fee--remarkable in this day and age. The glass is carefully rinsed with a few drops of the new wine between tastes so that the flavors can stand as distinctive. There is a small selection of more well-known varietals--my husband was quite intrigued by the Merlot. But the standouts were definitely the fruit wines--my favorites were the elderberry (a bit of an herbal or medicinal character?), the raspberry, and the Peach Supreme. Think of cocktail additions, mimosas, even ice cream topping? I purchased the raspberry and my friend got the strawberry--neither sickeningly sweet nor artificial flavored in any way, just fruit and wine. An experience that still makes me smile!

They offer a huge selection of sweet/frutiy wines! One place who still offers wine tasing for only $5 for 4 tastes. Not bad. they offered both inside and outdoor seating. Bottles of wine were reasonable priced. Huge gift store to browse as well. Friendly staff. Honeywood has been in the are since 1934

Friendly and helpful staff. Huge selection of fruit wines but that's really all. Unusual gift shop. Wine was not appealing to us at all.

One word Blackberry Mead “AMAZING “. You won’t be sorry. So good I had to buy 2 bottles. This is by far the best blackberry I have ever had. Wine tasting was nice basically 1.00 per tasting starting with 5 tastings. Just that wine gets 5stars

While I do really like the wines and they have so many to choose from the service was not great, the patrons were more helpful than our server Crystal. One of the regulars were there and she even asked her was she ok since she wasn’t being very friendly, her words were, “this is my work face, I’m in work mode” well while that could fly I guess, in the wine business being friendly and talking about the product seems to be the key, being a people person is important seeing as so many different people come wine tasting. Our group of 4 was from Texas and we were pretty excited to try so many sweet wines, we mapped it out to drive all the way here from Portland making it our first stop, on our way to Lincoln city, but she didn’t seem like she wanted us there. She was short and just not friendly. We asked questions and got few answers, again the patrons there were helping us out more. Finally, we just bought what we we’re going to buy and left. Very disappointing.

They have lots of items for sale, however I loved that they had wine sleeves in different neon colors super cool.

Because the Blackberry Mead was so good I would go back.

We didn't like all the wines (but did find one we liked enough to buy). But what we really liked was there was no fee and we tasted as many as we wanted. And they properly rinsed the glasses in between so you were mixing dregs like some of the other wineries we visited in Oregon. In fact, we tasted so many wines, and she kept pushing some, this had to be our only stop for the day :)

A few years ago I found a bottle of red current wine in a store in Washington. I absolutely loved it! Looking up the winery I was delighted to find it's in Salem, OR. I have to go through Salem anyhow on my home to California. This turned into one of several stops over the years, as Honeywood wine isn't available where I shop in California.

I tried various other wines but red currant remains my favorite.

The store stocks an eclectic mix of wine related souvenirs. It's always a very pleasant interlude for me.

Honeywood also ships wines. But of course picking it up yourself saves shipping cost.

Highly recommended!

Went with my wife with a Groupon that included 5 tastings each, an app platter and a bottle wine. More than a great value! Our server was a ton of fun and made great recommendations based on what we told her we each liked. The platter had a good mix of crackers, cheese, nuts and olives. The tasting room is very welcoming and has many gifts as well as the wine of course. All in all we had a great time and will do it again!

I took my wife and brother in for a tasting.... great wines. Most of the ones we tried (and bought) were hybrid or mixed fruit wines. I particularly liked the honey mead. The salesperson was very friendly and helpful.

The prices were affordable.
