Located about an hour from Portland, the The Willamette Valley, is Oregon’s leading wine region, with over 500 wineries.
The valley region is recognized for producing one of the premier Pinot noir wines in the world. It is also about over twice the size of Napa Valley in California, however most of the wineries haven’t lost their personal, handcrafted approach to making wine, or their desire to do things a little differently. You can schedule wine tasting in several wineries and go wine hopping.
The beautiful landscape and climate makes Willamette Valley a perfect choice for a day or weekend trip. Along with the wineries you can find from historic towns to quirky cities, craft brews to scenic bike trails.
