Overview

Award-winning Oregon wines from a beautiful estate winery only 25 minutes from downtown Portland and 10 minutes from high-tech Hillsboro. Nestled in the foothills of the Tualatin Mountains, Helvetia Vineyards & Winery has been producing fine pinot noir, chardonnay, and pinot gris since 1992. The winery also sources wine grapes from vineyards on the east side of the Cascades. Visit the 1905 farmhouse in historic Helvetia and its beautiful grounds for picnics or just for the solitude of the great outdoors. Open afternoons daily except Monday throughout the summer.

We visited for the first time yesterday. It was an ambient drive down a winding suburban country road around hillsides and by golden fields recently mowed for hay and other crops. When we reached the two story farmhouse, we were immediately met and welcomed by...More

Initially, I was turned on to this place due to a living social deal. The deal and some of the pictures that I had seen made this place seem quite large and somewhat upscale. Upon my arrival, I was relieved and somewhat saddened that it...More

Helvetia Winery is only 15 minutes from my home in Portland, but it seems like a world away. I love driving up back woods roads, past red barns and alpaca farms and finally landing at John Platt's Helvetia Winery. I've started making it a monthly...More
