The Willamette Valley is full of wineries. Get a wine map and pick a route. Tasting can be expensive but worth it for the gorgeous views.

Great place to get out of Portland for a day and check out all of the different wineries, be sure to bring a designated driver. Peaceful country-side, close to the city. Also a great stop on the way to the beach. Not a whole lot of entertainment going on, great during the day.

We are wine lovers and thoroughly enjoyed the variety of wineries we were able to visit in the Willamette Valley. From small cozy tasting rooms to expansive and almost glamourous settings we loved every one. Most fun - learning that it is pronouned WillAmette (as in DAMMIT). Least fun - we needed more time to explore this area.

A must see break from the big city. The diversity of the mountains, the trees and the waterfalls are breath taking!

Some of the world's best wines are waiting for you to taste them in settings that will take your breath away. Plenty of fine dining and accommodations in this pristine valley. Plan on spending a couple of nights. Thanksgiving and Memorial Day weekends are popular, and for good reason. Some small but wonderful wineries are only open on these weekends.... More

Winery heaven! We visited Oak Knoll and Ponzi wineries. Ponzi had the best Pinot Noir of the two. Both had lovely locations but Ponzi was a bit more off the beaten path and quiet. The valley is gorgeous with all of the farms, surrounding mountains and beautiful green even in November. Would love to come back to this area in... More

There are hundreds of wineries and vineyards in the Willamette Valley, a great spot for a day trip out of Portland or, better yet, spend a night or two. Options range from a high-end spa hotel with a very Northwest feel (the Allison) to numerous B&B's. Several really good restaurants as well. An excellent opportunity to try a range of... More
