Oregon wines fly free on Alaska Airlines

Passengers flying into Oregon on Alaska Airlines through Nov. 20 will be allowed to check a case of wine for free on the return flight out of Medford, Portland or Eugene.

While here, the promotion also grants them free tasting privileges at about 250 wineries, including Ashland's Belle Fiore Winery and Grizzly Peak Winery and Talent's Ledger David Cellars and Trium Wines.

Many local wine producers see the promotion as larger than saving $20 on checked-bag fees for a case of wine. It's a way, they say, to help grow the industry beyond state boundaries.

Laura Lotspeich of Trium Wines thinks that if tourists don't have to squeeze bottles into their suitcases, they will pack other items.

"Tourists can also take back some great cheese or chocolates," she says.
