Awesome wineries from Newburg to Dundee to McMinnville along Route 99W. Just stop in to most any of them for wine flights for a nominal fee. The wineries are identified by brown road signs along 99W that let you know where to turn within a 1/4 mile. Well done!

Ride the back roads to see the trees and scenic backroads on the way out and the main roads back. This will give you terrific views of everything.

we loved it. When you go in summer you will find great great view of River. There are also lots of places to hike which we ended up doing in 2 places. The water falls place is bit crowded if you go in weekends :) .

This is a wonderful valley to do some excellent wine tasting in, close enough to Portland you don't have to stay overnight. Of course to me Argyle is my favorite with their sparkling wines.

We loved going around to the different wineries throughout the scenic hills of the valley. Unfortunately there was a haze in the air caused by two large forest fires in the region. The winemakers reminded me of years ago visiting Napa where you actually met the person responsible for the wines on occasion. I hope they can retain that charm.

My hubby and I visited the area in mid-September 2014. Because of the warm summer, the harvest was in full swing when we arrived. We visited 11 wineries, sticking closely to Dundee, Chehalem, and Newburg areas. The views were wonderful and we were fortunate to have amazing weather during our visit. I spent some time prior to our arrival researching... More

There are so many wonderful vineyards to sample wine at. Most of the wine is Pinot Noir, that is what they are known for.

For the vineyards we actually made it to, they were great.... but traffic on 99W in areas like Newberg wasted soooo much of our time. Pick a specific area in Willamette Valley and stick to all the vineyards/wineries in that area aka spend less time in traffic/on the road! And start early, try to be at the 1st vineyard/winery/tasting at... More
