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, we offer some suggested tasting routes through the region and further visitor resources. 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?

"This was the first year that we had a team of all interns from the United States. The five of them ranged in experience and background. Coming together during a pandemic and getting through harvest was challenging but we had the right team for the job. 2020 will be one for the books. Cheers to our Harvest Team!" - Katie Santora, Winemaker. Learn more about our interns - follow the 🔗 in profile!
