We visited several wineries and learned a lot as well as tasted some very nice wines. I would definitely recommend the short drive from Portland for a nice treat.

So I wasn't actually expecting it to be the same as Napa, but I was expecting to be overwhelmed with choices for restaurants, cute little touristy shops and spots along the way to hang out and enjoy the views. Don't get me wrong, there are some lovely wineries and the odd spectacular view, but overall, a very disappointing place. The... More

This was our first visit to Willamette Valley and it exceeded our expectations. The terrain and countryside is absolutely gorgeous with a great selection of wineries, restaurants and shops.We only spent a day and one night in the Dundee area and visited four wineries including Archery Summit, Adelsheim, White Rose and Domain Drouhin. All were excellent but we loved our... More

My wife and I have been fortunate enough to have traveled to many wine regions around the world. We have toured and tasted in Spain's Rioja region, Italy's Chianti region, the Napa Valley in California and Canada's Okanogan and Niagara regions. All have their specific charms and their specific challenges. As is the case with the Willamette Valley in Oregon.... More

So beautiful and all of the green and waterways brought refreshment to this SoCal resident! Highway 58 is a must drive if you have time! It's like an enchanted forest.

Beautiful green landscape, wonderful warm and friendly people, charming towns, and fantastic wines! We made appointments and learned so much about the individual wineries and the people who make them! Biggio Hamina, Patricia Green, and Matello were especially fun and delicious!

Only able to tour a couple since our day got off to a late start but the two we toured were fantastic! I brought home some wine to remember my time in the area. The Ponzi winery was beautiful and had great views. Definitely check it out!! Cooper Mountain had my favorite wines and I was pleased to hear they... More

We had fun touring around the area looking for cheese and wine tastings. Most wineries charge for the tastings which our traveling friends didn't want to do. We searched for free tastings. The area is beautiful with great views of the Valley. The cheese is outstanding and very tasty. We enjoyed touring around this valley. The local maps are clearly... More

We only got to stop into some of the wineries that we wanted to visit since our "wine day" was a Monday. Great wines in the region can be found.... but they are very proud of some of those wines!

The views and tasting rooms prove that this area is already up there with Sonoma. Not overly touristy, yet. MOST wines were good but the pictures we took say it all. Tasting rooms are for the most part very sleek and architecturally contemporary, but it really works here! One can be in awe just driving around surrounded by vineyards &... More
