About the Tour
World-famous Pinot Noirs, crisp Chardonnays, and sweet Rieslings are just a taste of the dozens of wines that Oregon has to offer. On this adventure through the rolling hills of the Willamette Valley, we’ll visit three carefully selected vineyards. Guests will partake in tasting flights and experience a behind-the-scenes view of viticulture.
This is a full day tour, typically offered from 10 AM – 4:30 PM. Please note, the tour route and sights may vary depending on the time of year and weather conditions. It is always our goal to provide you with the most interesting adventure possible.
Departing from downtown Portland, we’ll make our way along the Vineyard and Valley Scenic Route, past orchards, lavender fields, and farms, to the famous Willamette Valley. As Oregon’s leading wine region, the valley is home to more than 500 wineries. Recognized as of one of the premier Pinot Noir producing areas of the world, the wine from this area is often likened to France’s Burgundy region. Throughout the drive, your guide will share the history of Oregon wine production, how our valley was formed, and what makes its soil so idyllic for our world-famous wine grapes. We’ll also discuss the 6 different sub-appellations of the valley.
In the heart of the Willamette Valley, we will visit three carefully selected wineries and vineyards, where we will partake in winery tours, viticulture talks, and wine tastings. Surrounded by the science, production, and study of grapes, our guests feel like experts in no time! From the wineries selected we’ll enjoy sweeping views of the Cascade Mountain Range as well as stunning, rolling hill vineyard vistas.
We will pick up our picnic-style lunch from a local, gourmet delicatessen in Portland before heading to the Willamette Valley. We will plan to bring our lunches out at the second winery to enjoy with our tastings. The wine tasting fees at each winery are included in the price of the tour. You will have a chance to purchase wine at the wineries. Most wineries offer convenient shipping options straight to your home.
