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!

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.

As everyone knows, The Willamette Valley is rising to the status of a world-class pinot noir growing region. Because it's in Oregon, the Disney-esque taint that quickly follows such areas (in America) has been very slow in creeping in. The towns are still rural and homey, with just enough great restaurants to sustain a 3-4 day tasting exploration. Let's hope... More
