The Willamette Valley, while no longer a secret, is still very much worth the trip for those visiting the Portland area for at least a few days. Only a 35-40 minute drive from PDX, the various towns in the Willamette Valley including Dundee and McMinville are host to some of the best Wineries in the United States, and perhaps the... More

What I loved about Willamette was that is was so diverse, not a monogamous stretch of vineyards. The lush green countryside was dotted with orchards, vineyards, straw farms, green fields and even a kiwi far. The wines we tried were exception especially those at Alexana, which also had a stunning view and Rocco.

Many wineries along the way....a bit pricey. We enjoyed a lovely restaurant Tina after spending the afternoon tasting wines.

whether you go for the wines which are wonderful, for the scenery which is stunning, the B & B's which are plentiful (recommend Chehalem Ridge B & B), or for shopping small locations, you will have an enjoyable trip. Best for a few days, but if one is all you have, do it! Take the back roads and just meander!

I grew up in the Willamette Valley when things were much more rustic and rural. The valley has matured nicely and the quality of life and the venue for visitors is now really lovely. We live overseas now, but our kids always want to return to Oregon's Willamette Valley and the Coast. They the clean and beautiful country and the... More

Get a map if you are driving as the roads can get confusing. However the wineries have lots of signs up. It is quite different from Napa or Sonoma valley because of the network of small sometimes dirt roads that wander around the hills. The area is chuck full of a wide variety of wineries in varying sizes, mostly smaller... More

The Willamette experience offers great scenery and some of the best Pinot noirs we've ever had. Willamette is an area of agricultural lands, after all wineries are farms, and there is something peaceful about travelling through the region. Restaurants of the region offer fabulous menus, and of course several local wine choices. We found some good ones thanks to the... More

The Willamette valley itself is not a pretty as Napa. But if you find a nice B&B off the main road the view can be lovely and the Pinot wineries varied and plentiful.

Love the Willamette Pino Noir's and it is well worth taking a day or two to visit the valley to taste their incredible choices. Lots of places to stop and enjoy the scenery, food and natural beauty of the area.
