whether you go for the wines which are wonderful, for the scenery which is stunning, the B & B's which are plentiful (recommend Chehalem Ridge B & B), or for shopping small locations, you will have an enjoyable trip. Best for a few days, but if one is all you have, do it! Take the back roads and just meander!

I grew up in the Willamette Valley when things were much more rustic and rural. The valley has matured nicely and the quality of life and the venue for visitors is now really lovely. We live overseas now, but our kids always want to return to Oregon's Willamette Valley and the Coast. They the clean and beautiful country and the... More

Get a map if you are driving as the roads can get confusing. However the wineries have lots of signs up. It is quite different from Napa or Sonoma valley because of the network of small sometimes dirt roads that wander around the hills. The area is chuck full of a wide variety of wineries in varying sizes, mostly smaller... More

The Willamette experience offers great scenery and some of the best Pinot noirs we've ever had. Willamette is an area of agricultural lands, after all wineries are farms, and there is something peaceful about travelling through the region. Restaurants of the region offer fabulous menus, and of course several local wine choices. We found some good ones thanks to the... More

The Willamette valley itself is not a pretty as Napa. But if you find a nice B&B off the main road the view can be lovely and the Pinot wineries varied and plentiful.

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.
