About the Valley
The Willamette Valley is now widely considered one of the world’s best wine regions of pinot noir but is also having great success with other varietals such as Chardonnay, Gamay Noir, Pinot Gris and Sangiovese.
There are more than 300 wineries in the area, but the best known names have been releasing pinot noirs since the early Seventies.
There are more wineries offering tours and tastings than you could possibly get to in a single trip. These eye opening tours come in every size and description, and with all sorts of special aspects from being pet, family and eco-friendly.
The Willamette Valley is one of the best wine regions in the nation to visit in person. The surrounding areas are beautiful, welcoming and with an abundance of locally made foods well suited to the wines.
The Portland/Willamette Valley is a must visit destination for any wine lover or serious foodie.
