Plan ahead with a winery map and try to get some good recommendations or you will be overwhelmed with Pinot Noir and Chardonay! We visited in June 2013 and stayed at a wonderful rental on a vineyard! If you have the time to spend a few days, it's worth it! We loved the veiw from Colene Clemons Vineyards! A beautiful location to sip a glass and soak in the ambiance! Highlights were Domaine Serene and Cooper Mountain Vineyards. (I recommend the Tocai Friulano which paired so well with smoked gouda) You will taste so many Pinot Noirs that have so many different notes, and some Syrahs but Pinot is their vintage. Most are very costly, as comparied to other wineries we have visitited in other states (TX, VA, MD, PA, IL, MI, TN, CA, WA) They are very proud of their wine in Oregon! The tastings are generous pours so you can share and get a good feel for the wine without overdoing it. None of the wineries we visited offered nosh plates or any food, so bring your own or eat a very big breakfast. When you need a change from Pinot and Chardonay, stop in Newburd at Zerba Cellars in Dundee. They offer other vintages with grapes from Walla Walla Valley and others.
Stop for local cheeses at Red Hills Market in Dundee. www.willamettewines.org is a good site to get started planning.
