Discover Oregon’s Award Winning Wine Country
Many will say Oregon’s Willamette Valley rivals that of the Napa Valley, and the wine regions of France with its scenic beauty, award winning wines, and exceptional culinary scene. Located about 50 minutes south of the vibrant city of Portland, Oregon’s wine country showcases sprawling vineyards, stunning Cascade Mountain views, and offers endless outdoor recreation. Willamette Valley winegrowers are committed to sustainable farming practices to ensure only the highest quality from the vine to the bottle. This area is a lush, emerald landscape of tree studded mountains, majestic waterfalls, charming bed and breakfasts, restaurants, and more. It’s the ideal location for any occasion whether it’s a romantic getaway for two, or getting the girls together for a weekend of wine tasting.
Willamette’s wine country is like heaven on earth for wine connoisseurs, and famous for its exquisite Pino Noir varieties, and over 500 incredible wineries. Anyone who has ridden a bike through the region’s rolling hills, or pulled up a chair overlooking the valley, knows this corner of the world is something truly special. Oregon’s wine region has been recognized as one of the best in the country by Food and Wine and has been featured by Travel and Leisure. Family run wineries including Adelsheim Vineyard founded in 1971, Bergström Vineyard, and the Alexana Estate Winery, invite visitors to sit back and relax while enjoying a day of picturesque wine tasting.
Nothing quite says romance, and charm like staying in a bed and breakfast, and the Willamette Valley offers over a dozen cozy inns from historic Victorian B&B’s to stately colonials. Le Puy A Wine Valley Inn is a beautiful retreat that boasts a spa atmosphere, and an organic menu designed to make their guests feel rejuvenated, and refreshed, while the rustic elegance of Franziska Haus in the Dundee Hills features a one of a kind log cabin experience surrounded by orchards, and tranquil, pastoral farmland. The valley is known for having an exceptional culinary scene to please any palate from unique food truck vendors to high-end five-star dining. Boutique shops, antique vendors, and specialty food stores provide the perfect setting to forget about rush hour and savor the fruits of this celebrated region.
