We rented a car one day on our recent Portland trip to go the wind country. Unlike other places, such as Napa, the wine country here starts 15 minutes outside the city. While note as pretty as Napa or Sonoma it is picturesque. You should stop in the town of McMinnville.

This is an easy day trip from Portland. You can taste wine, enjoy some excellent food, and even visit a wonderful space and aviation museum in McMinnville.

We traveled to 4 different wineries. The countryside was just beautiful. We tasted some wine that was better than others, but enjoyed every bit of it.

We love to visit the Willamette Valley and are never disappointed. Four vineyards stood out, Purple Hands, Raptor Ridge, Skoller and Trisaetum.

We really enjoyed the Willamette Valley. This area is one of the best pinot noir wine areas in North America It is about an hours drive south east of Portland. We enjoy the Duck Pond Winery. We had a couple flat bread piazzas and a couple of glasses of world class pinot noir.
