Nice surpise and beautiful scenery. A 35 minute drive from Portland, Visited Carlton, Dundee, Newberg. Lunch at Hore Radish in Carlton- great! Visited WiilaKenzie, Penner Ash, Sokol Blosser, and Ken Wright. Side trip to visit the The Allison Inn and Spa for our next trip back- no availability- top notch hotel.

We used Insider Wine Tour to take us around Willamette Valley to taste wines. John was our driver, and he made our trip amazing. Every place he recommended was great. We went to a couple of busier wineries, and he made sure we were there early, so it wasn't too crowded. He knows most of the people pouring, so when... More

We have visited the Willamette Valley many times for its beauty, wine, food and graciousness. It is arguably the site of some of the best pinot noir wine produced anywhere, with wineries such as Penner-Ash, Scott Paul, Bergstrom, Patricia Green, Bethel Heights and Stoller offering generous tastes and sales within its borders. Wines such as sauvignon blanc, rose and malbec... More

A visit to this area was a huge surprise for me. Not only did it have world class pinot noirs - my favorite but very difficult to find good ones - it was full of other fresh treats. Peaches, pears, and other local produce were bursting everywhere we looked! Hazelnuts were also a big deal. It's very close to Portland... More

We enjoyed a day of wine tasting while in Portland. The scenery was spectacular and the wines were delicious. We went on a weekday and avoided any crowds. Everyone was extremely helpful and nice. We were able to see wine being produced and bottled and even your the vat areas. I enjoyed this trip more than my trips to Sonoma... More

I didn't get to see as much of the Willamette Valley as i would like, but it was nice. I didnt get to see any spectacular wineries as i have seen in Sonoma or Napa, but i enjoyed it.

We didn't get very far south, so this doesn't apply to a major WV trip, but I have to say that the drive to and from McMinnville is much less scenic than it used to be. Despite Portland's boundary, there is still essentially "suburban sprawl," and far less of the agrarian feel than I remember from previous visits.

Very pretty to drive through. Many good wineries and cute little towns. Certainly worth the drive out of Portland.
