The Willamette Valley is a really nice way to spend a day on your visit to Portland, its a short easy drive and gives you a whole different perspective on this wonderful city. We were in Portland in Oct so it was in its full fall glory! We stopped at a few different wineries and each was wonderful and unique. The first stop was Blakeslee which offered a beautiful view of their vineyard and all the pine trees in the background, really lovely, good wines & friendly. We stopped at Ponzi next and enjoyed some wine outside, it was really charming. Next stop was Alloro which had a garden feel to it. August Cellars was next and the gentleman there was very informative & offered to take us through the barrel room. Last but not least we stopped at Argyle which specializes in sparkling wines a great way to toast our day sampling the great wines Oregon has to offer. Each winery we were at the people were so friendly and recommended other nearby wineries to visit, it really felt like a close knit community which was really nice. We made a last stop at Fir tree Farms for cider donuts & pumpkins! It was a perfect day in the Willamette Valley!

The fabulous thing about Oregon is that it offers a gorgeous coastline with views to die for, as well as Willametter Valley with gracious vineyards and snowcapped mountains! What to choose??? The Valley is graceful and peaceful. The vineyard owners are gracious hosts with a variety of B
&Bs to choose from. We stayed two nights and loved every minute. Oregonians love to serve you great wine and great food. Go see them!!

Stayed in the area (McMinville) for three days to tour the Willamette wine country. The fall colors were the most beautiful we've seen. The gold and orange mixed in with the lush green colors were breathtaking. This area is gorgeous, but if you can be here in the fall it's even more magnificent. Many wineries scattered throughout, we enjoyed the smaller more rustic ones.

This was a great weekend getaway. We came out to visit an old friend but stayed for the wine. We toured several vineyards and learned so much from the hosts. All and all we enjoyed this area every bit as much as California wine country. Visited the following: Erath, Argyle, Firesteed, Elk Cove, Sokol Blosser, Left Coast and Ken Wright Cellars. Don't worry we did this over a couple of days. Pack a rain jacket it rained all the time but it doesn t stop anyone from getting out.

Driving to the valley was beautiful. The wineries are well labeled from Highway 99W, so just drive and stop or plan it.
