My fiance and I are going to be traveling the Coastal Highway and coming inward after DePoe Bay. We are hoping to drive through the wine country via McMinnville, Dundee and Newberg on 99 to get to Portland.
What are the best wineries? We don't necessarily have to experience the fanciest, but we want delicious wines and unique wineries--more off the beaten path? If some of the more touristy places are great then we are definitely willing to visit. Our original point of departure is San Fran and we are deliberately skipping Sonoma and Napa in order to experience something different in Oregon.
Do you recommend staying near the wineries for a night or we could we visit in a day on our way to Portland?
