Our visit was OK, yet just OK, not great. A few standout wineries, such as Archery Summit, Sokol Blosser, De Ponte, and King Estate. But most wineries were just so-so on quality and customer appreciation. The traffic was horrific going into and out of Dundee from both directions. Overall quality of food establishments was good but not as good as... More

Visited a number of wineries in the area and found them all to be very pleasant places. Prices on tastings ranged from $5 - $15 with tasting price refunded depending on purchases. Most presented views of the valley.

I did some very sceni drives and went through Lake Oswego and then off to Williammette on my way to the airport . This area is so lovely-- lots of art and fun and natural beauty. There's a bridge being built that crosses the Williammette. Truly, just a beautiful, outdoorsy place to go. The local radio station says, "we suffer... More

Visited several wineries and enjoyed the relaxed and friendly feel. It seems like an area that locals hang out for an afternoon, and not a tourist trap.

We had a great stay with friends in Portland and they took us on a fabulous wine tour. It was interesting to visit some local wineries but what we enjoyed most of all was being out in this very picturesque countryside. So lush and green and just so pretty. And so close to the city too. Highly recommended.

It seems kinda funny to review the region where I live, but here goes... When the weather is nice -- generally June to October -- there is no place better to be than in the Willamette Valley. Even when it gets hot (which is generally not more than mid-90s), it is not humid (less than 50%) and it cools off... More

Rain? Stop complaining, without it this would be a desert and a different conversation. It is GREEN. Farms, towns, wineries. Coastal range on one side, Cascades on the other. Mt Hood, Mt Jefferson, Sisters. Try not to blink, lots to see, more to do, and never crowded. We liked it so much, we moved here, from the desert!

It's just gorgeous. I could drive those roads forever. Lush forests, gorgeous water, you could just pull over anywhere and enjoy it for an hour or an afternoon. I would come back here in a second!
