We visited six wineries during this most recent visit to the valley. Beaux Freres came in second for us, but wow what a fantastic experience at Beaux Freres.

1. Brooks
2. Beaux Freres
3. Shea
4. Roco
5. Trisaetum
6. Stoller

I will admit I hesitantly added Beaux Freres to our itinerary because during our last visit we went to Archer Summit. Their wines were expensive and highly recommended. The experience was pretentious, snobby and exclusive. Beaux Freres pricing is on the high end compared to most wineries, but they are the polar opposite of Archer.

You will not find a beautiful tasting room. You will not find well dressed employees pouring your flight. Instead, you will be in a barn surrounded by four generations of vintners that drive 1980's beat up Datson trucks. Their dogs have free run of the place. Their little kids may be running about while the parents work.

We happened to visit on the last day of harvest which they celebrate with Harvest Lunch for every employee. All four generations of owners were present. They were down to earth hardworking people. They talked to us. You can feel the pride coming off them and all their employees.

Their wines are excellent. They are some of the best we had all week. They take the extra time to do every step right. I highly recommend this to everyone. You can only visit through reservations, and they are often booked up. You can drop in unannounced to buy individual bottles and cases, but you cannot try the wine without a reservation.

We toured Willamette valley for 3 days and a total of 10 wineries. At each winery we asked the staff where they would go and over half had Beaux Freres in their top 3.

We called on our last day and asked politely if we could get in because they came so highly recommended by their peers and even though they were booked solid for Saturday and Sunday, they fit us in.

The tasting did not disappoint!

The wine and staff are second to none and we had a great experinece.

Three things to note for the unidated:

1. This wine is awesome and a higher price tag (worth it) than most vineyards.
2. The hogs on the property are the largest pigs on the planet
3. If you are looking for opulence and an amazing tasting room, and picturesque view, this is not the place for you. If you want some of the best wine in the valley, awesome staff, gigantic pigs, and a fun time.... his is the place for you!

Cheers! We will be back!

Our visit to Beaux Freres was great. We were greeted with personalized menus and a congenial, knowledgeable host. You can tell there is a passion for what they do. Their story is presented in an interesting way with great detail about the area. Wines were fabulous, though very pricey! We enjoyed meeting the pigs at the conclusion of our visit. My daughter was thrilled she had something to feed them in the car. :)

The wines were fantastic! I loved the experience with Lydia, my hostess for the tasting. It's very low key and relaxed, which was so enjoyable. I loved all of the history that is visible throughout the tasting room. All of the winemaking processes (I believe) take place in that building. Lydia was so very welcoming and friendly and so informative. I felt like I made a new friend while I was enjoying the wines, she was so hospitable. There is absolutely no pressure to purchase wine - I happened to choose a bottle that is only available at the winery, because they are not widely available. I would highly recommend a tasting at Beaux Freres. It was awesome!

What can I say. What a fantastic tasting of Oregon Pinot Noirs. Our favorite out of the many high quality wineries in this area. Our server Haley was super and knowledgeable about her wines in particular and all wines in general. We had the best tasting ever. I just wish the wines were less expensive but you get what you pay for.

Beautiful spot to try some wonderful wine. Surprised by the delicious Chardonnay—not what I expected to find in the heart of Pinot country—and thrilled by the Pinots. Hayley was a gracious, friendly and informative host. And the personable collection of pigs honors the history of the property.

What a great visit we had at Beaux Freres. We ended up joining their wine club and were glad we did. The sommelier was outstanding and even took us on a tour of the vineyard. Fantastic wines, great ambiance and fun day!

Wow! We can’t say enough good things about this beautiful winery. The wine was amazing. We had one Chardonnay and 3 Pinot noirs. All fantastic. Yvette, was so knowledgeable and so fun! We joked that we wanted to be her best friend by the end of it. There was absolutely no pressure to buy anything or join the membership, however after tasting the wines we decided to become a wine club member anyway. Highly recommend! And ask for Yvette if you can.

If I had to go back to only one winery in the Willamette Valley, it would be Beaux Frères (in fact, we made two trips here because we just had to bring home a few more bottles). Their wines are all spectacular, and the tasting room is small and private. Most days, you can catch Michael Etzel, the owner, or his son who is the winemaker, working the farm or the tasting room.

Our tasting was informative and detailed, sampling back and forth across comparable wines to choose our favorites. We enjoyed our tastings on the porch with views of their pig-pen (don't worry, it's clean). We loved the details in the tastings about the differences in years and the styles - very informative!

Tours and tastings are by appointment only, which ensures you have a private wine expert to guide you through each glass. Book early – this is a can’t miss!

What a great experience to have the tasting room and tasting room manager (Anna) all to ourselves. This is the kind of tasting experience that makes an occasion special, which was doubly welcome since it was my husband's birthday.The wine is the BEST I have tasted in Oregon (which is saying a lot since there are so many great competitors), and I am used to buying high end wine from our state. Anna was easy to talk to: very friendly and enthusiastic without being pushy. She clearly knows what she is talking about. A cute and sweet spaniel pup greets you at the door. Make reservations and prepare to be wowed by wonderful, amazing wine.
