Being from the Bay Area, we are spoiled by the beauty of the Napa and Sonoma Wine Regions. So when we took a drive from Portland through the Willamette Valley to explore what we had heard was a sought after region we were a little surprised by the layout of the area. We were navigating through commercial and dense residential... More

We drove through the vineyards on the way to the coast and enjoyed visiting different wineries along the way. They differ as they do in Napa--some fancier than others. Nice experience.

As a frequent visitor to Napa and Sonoma, I didn't think there would be any other place for me to visit for good quality wine...boy was I wrong. We took a day trip from Portland to taste wine in the Willamette Valley. This excursion was the highlight of my trip. We stopped at four local wineries and each one was... More

The willamette valley has so much to see and do. This is the area that links Portland to Eugene and all places in between. it is bordered to the east by the Cascades and to the west by the Coastal range. It is rich lush green and often FULL of RAINBOWS!!

We visited about 100 Winery's and Vineyards on our way up after we flew in from San Francisco. Winery's in this area are not as posh as Sonoma or Napa but wines are good (some even better), not as snobbish and wine tasting here is free, $5-$10 at most, not $25-$30 like Sonoma and Napa. Scenery beautiful, hardly any trash... More

We had tasted a few Oregon wines but never been to the Willamette valley. We had been to Napa and Sonoma and other domesstic wineries in the Great Lakes. The trip did not disappoint us. Once you get thru the traffic coming out of Portland the drive is nIce. The best part is the huge numbers of wineries and little... More

We did a wine tour when we were in Sonoma and had such a good day - that we definitely wanted to explore wineries in Willamette Valley when visiting Portland. After checking a few companies, we decided to go with Wine Dirt and definitely made the right choice. Mary is extremely knowledgeable and carefully picks the wineries to visit. We... More

The Willamette Valley (the little verse to proper pronunciation is, "Willamette, damn it !) stretches from Portland South to below Eugene. We stopped in McMinville and its environs which is about an hour Southeast of Portland. The countryside is really beautiful, worth the drive even if you are not interested in wine tasting. The number of wineries and tasting rooms... More
