“Best Wine Tasting Experience Ever!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Didn't save the best for last this time...we got there first! It was a gorgeous day and we were seated on their outside patio overlooking their vineyard and the whole valley - absolutely divine. We love Pinot Noir and theirs is just wonderful - smooth and light with lots of flavor. Our server and guide was enormously informative but unpretentious. She told us about the different vineyards from which Archery Summit gets its grapes, about the roses, the weather and everything we needed to know about the winery's philosophy and then brought us through the impressive cellars, even treated us to a sip from the 2012 wines. If we lived there we'd have a wedding or other celebration in their beautiful facility. The place is spotless and smells heavenly - also has an amazing rest room (a must see). We became members and cannot wait for our wines. This is the third time we've been to the Willamette Valley and although there are many, many wonderful wineries, this is clearly among the best. We will return.

“Excellent Wines and stay for the view”
Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

First visit for the day since they open at 10! Wines were excellent and it was very nice to sit outside for the view. It is strange to say but the restroom is down in the wine caves so make sure you go to the restroom if you do not do the tour!! It is a must visit

“Exquisite Wines and Great Views”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

This was my first exposure to Archery Summit's wines and I have to say that I was quite impressed with the deliciousness of each of their Pinots. The patio is probably the best place to enjoy a tasting flight as it overlooks their beautiful vineyard. The staff was very friendly without being pushy. The tasting flight is five wines for $15 but is waved when you purchase any of their premier bottles. Also, the walk to the bathroom is very cool as it features rows of wine barrels.

“Nice views, good wine, great bathroom”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Archery Summit has a very small tasting room but, luckily, a very big patio. The staff is very professional and they let you take your time admiring the views and tasting the wines.
If you go, you have to check out the bathroom (weird comment, I know, but trust me). You have to walk through part of the wine cave and it looks like the bathroom was carved out of the cave. Very cool.

“one of the best”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

and certainly in the discussion of being the best oregon has to offer. Yes the wines are expensive but so are the others in this category. Look at the spacing and the slope of the vines planted right there next to the parking lot, They all have to be cultivated by hand. Quality comes with a price tag. We were there for Memorial Day Weekend, tasting was just right, not too crowded and not rushed at all. Thanks again.
