This is a wonderful day trip from downtown Portland. We spent half the day doing wine tastings and admiring the surrounding views of the vineyards. After a hefty and delicious lunch at Dundee bistro we made our way to The Wooden Shoe Tulip farm really an awesome and beautiful sight. Don't miss the Willamette Valley if you like antique shopping... More

The tastings were fun. Good wines, friendly hosts. The prices varied a lot from $5 for 9 samples to $10 for only 3.

With over 450 Vineyards in the area, you could spend all day driving around this beautiful part of the country. I was there in early March and lucked out on some great weather. Plenty of restaurants - The Painted Lady is at the top while wine tasting. Most tasting rooms are open (always call in advance) and tastings are waived... More

Some really beautiful countryside and wineries. Almost exclusively Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. However, being from Australia, a big turnoff was the cost of wine tasting, $15-20. In Oz it's almost always free and gratis.

Great place to enjoy a day away from the city. There are lot of wineries so find someone who is knowledgeable and can get you into some of the small wineries which you woudn't ordinary find, and can show you area in local's perspective.

This is a great trip from Portland. Don't miss it. Go on the old route. Stop a Wilmette Falls, hike to the top (if you are young enough), lovely restaurant there. Continue on to the "fruit loop". Yes Oregon is the place for fruit, cherries, berries (many kinds, some you never heard of), pears (in season) apples and watch the... More

The rolling hills here--just an hour outside Portland--are beautiful. There are many wineries, so do some research and choose one or two before you drive out.
