Drive and stop everywhere

Pick up a guide to the Willamette Valley because the area has so very much to offer on all levels. If you somehow dislike this place, you must be nuts.

Do a little research to find out which wineries are open to the public and the cost of tastings. I used a Willamette Winery organization website that gave hours, history, AVA, special events, and clustered the wineries by location. I travel on a budget, so $15/person tastings were out of my league. However, I was given a free tasting card... More

I've lived in the Valley for 43 years and won't live any other place. An hour from the ocean; an hour from the Cascades. Nuff said.

A short and easy drive from Portland. We went to Amity for the terrific views and enjoyed the wonderful wine and some snacks. We stopped at the Blue Goat after the tasting and had great lunch.

beautiful rolling hills with different types of agriculture in neat rows, even changes in color from wheat to vines then back to rock from the hills. Enjoyed the scenic byways, an easy relaxing drive.

The Willamette Valley reminds me so much on Napa & Sonoma valley. Picturesque rolling hills, vineyards, orchards & hazelnut farms. Late summer (harvest time) is my favorite time to visit. I take my family, a picnic lunch & my camera. Stop at a few farms stands (the best apples you'll ever taste!) get some pumpkins & check out some winerys.... More

I'm probably going to be lambasted for writing this review. I recently went to the Wilamette Valley to do some wine tasting in the great Pinot region of Oregon, perhaps one of the best and most well known Pinot regions in the world. However, I was extremely disappointed on several fronts. First of all, most of the wineries just have... More

Views of America as it once was at its finest. Small, picturesque proud towns amidst rolling hills, fields of hay and small vineyards featuring boutique wineries producing high grade wines such as Pinot Noir. Magnificent.
