plan your visit


Welcome to the Willamette Valley! Home to two-thirds of Oregon’s wineries and vineyards, our valley is known as one of the premier Pinot noir producing areas in the world. It's also an ideal wine tourist destination, with places to stay that include a luxury resort, several high-end inns, and delightful B&Bs. Visitors will also find a robust and renowned culinary scene, offering a long list of places to eat.

While wineries are the centerpiece of a wine tourist’s itinerary, there are also other things to see and do like visiting an art gallery, biking, hiking, or floating above wine country in a hot air balloon. Complete your visit with some specialty tasting and shopping at one of the unique shops in the valley. For transportation and guidance on your journey, our touring company partners are an excellent resource.

To help you plan your itinerary, there are some suggested tasting routes through the region. Finally, make sure you have a copy of our brochure, the Guide to Willamette Valley Wineries. We hope you enjoy your visit!

Let’s raise a glass to Friday, shall we?! ⠀⠀
This weekend is going to be a busy one in the Willamette Valley, jam-packed with tons of fun Pre-Thanksgiving events and opportunities to stock up on wine for the holidays. I’m having a hard time narrowing down the list of events I want to attend, though these are my top contenders:
⠀⠀
• Flâneur Thanksgiving Wines, Saturday & Sunday 11-4 at the Grain Elevator. Flâneur will be pouring their ‘16 Couvee Constantin Pinot Noir (and others), which was named one of the best wines for Thanksgiving by foodandwine Magazine. Entry is $30, or complimentary for club members.
⠀⠀
• Beauxfreres Pre-Thanksgiving Open House, Saturday from 10 to 3. This annual event is a rare opportunity to drop in to the normally by appointment only winery, and one of the only times that you can also taste sequiturwine & coattailswine at Beaux Fréres. $25, complimentary for club members.
⠀⠀
• delancellottiwines Pre-Thanksgiving Open House Friday & Saturday 11-4, pouring new releases. $30, free for club members.
⠀⠀
• hundredsunswine Fall Tasting, Saturday 12-3 at their winery - Gamay, Grenache, and hats!
⠀⠀
Are you headed to any fun events this weekend, in the Willamette Valley or elsewhere?

Has your wine club membership ever been rewarded with a custom etched 3 liter bottle of wine? Last year we drove down to Carlton Oregon for the Ken Wright Cellars Ten Year Anniversary Party. Surprisingly, our membership was rewarded with this bottle of wine. 💥 For real!!! That is the equivalent of 4 bottles of wine. When the hubby first saw this, though, he was a little worried that it had his name on it instead of mine! 😂 ⁠
Even though this year is a little different without big celebrations, we're so happy for the great memories. Today on the VinoSocial blog, I write about our experience as members. Read more via Linkin.bio and leave a comment about your fave wine club!⁠

As we move into this two week ‘freeze’, we are reminded of how thankful we are to do what we love and to share that passion with all of you. The ongoing support of our community, friends, and family are what get us through difficult times like these. Thank you!
.
Both Durant Vineyards Clubhouse and Tasting Lodge will be closed for on-site tastings until December 2nd. BUT, we are open for pick-up, and delivering orders over $75, free of charge, to addresses within 50 miles of the farm! Shop our new website from the comfort of home and we will bring your order right to your door!
.
Our nursery, gift shop, lodging, and gardens will remain open with strict social distancing guidelines. We have more than doubled the size of the gift shop to accommodate social distancing (and a lot more products!). Luckily, much of the farm and nursery are outdoors with plenty of space to keep your distance!
.
We will get through this, we will flatten the curve, and we will come out the other side ready for new wine country adventures!
