Love the Willamette Pino Noir's and it is well worth taking a day or two to visit the valley to taste their incredible choices. Lots of places to stop and enjoy the scenery, food and natural beauty of the area.

We had to detour into Willamette Valley on our way into Portland - DePonte Cellars NEVER disappoints. We cannot pass up on the opportunity to drink the latest Pinot Noir offerings. Also stopped in at Alexana - gorgeous place with very pricey wines.

The hills and valley terrain provide many scenic views, especially view of the city and river coming from the south as you hit the rim on I5. There are many bridges crossing the river in Portland and the new suspension bridge is marvelous.Wine grapes are a big crop here as well as several huge commercial flower nurseries.

Traveled to Willamette to learn Pinot! Suggest hiring a local guide to get you into the more exclusive and lower producing vineyards.

For wine tasting, we have been there a few times and stopped at a number of Willamette Wineries and did a wine tasting. We have also explored some of the parks in the area.

Very pretty region and great usage of the land to produce good wine. Things are a little spread out, but the majority being in McMinville and Dundee. Worth the visit, especially being so close to Portland. No reason not to get out more often to drink wine!

It's not Napa or Los Olivos but good wine, a worthwhile experience. Hawks View & Trisaetum were excellent, and The Allison Inn & Spa is tops. Weather can be a challenge but a welcomed change from So Cal heat. Good to experience other AVA's.

Awesome wineries from Newburg to Dundee to McMinnville along Route 99W. Just stop in to most any of them for wine flights for a nominal fee. The wineries are identified by brown road signs along 99W that let you know where to turn within a 1/4 mile. Well done!

Ride the back roads to see the trees and scenic backroads on the way out and the main roads back. This will give you terrific views of everything.
