A Great Oregon Wine Tour is a small locally owned company that specializes in educational tours of the Northern Willamette Valley and Hood River, Oregon. My objective is to educate everyone on Oregon wines while keeping it entertaining. I will dscuss the formation of the Willamette Valley, grapes grown here and the different styles of wines that are made. I have personal relationships from many winemakers that I have nurtured over the years that are second to none. Please watch my video.

We were visiting Portland for a few days and decided to try a private wine tour so we both could taste. We have a lot of experience with Washington wines but hadn't visited the Willamette Pinot Noirs wineries. Marcus was our guide and was a super match for us. His descriptions of the terroir of the sub-AVAs and the growing... More

Wayne is extremely knowledgeable and gave us a wonderful tour. He catered to our needs and brought us to the wineries that he felt fit our group. It was a great day!

It was unfortunate, but we did not get the tour guide "Wayne" we paid for and the man everyone raves about in their reviews. His replacement was nice and knowledgeable but not Wayne and the tour van was old and in need of a modern upgrade! Fortunately the other 2 couples we were with made the wine tour AWESOME!! My...

Wayne picked my sister and me up promptly at our hotel and we started off for a day of fun and wine tastings. Before we hit the first winery, we stopped at a lovely roadside stand to get pumpkin donuts and then we also stopped to get some hazelnuts -- the scenery was just breathtaking and Wayne was so informative...

3 of the 4 wineries visited do not distribute - so the wine is available only there and through their wine clubs or online. We enjoyed trying Oregon wines that we don't find in retail stores. Wayne was great, and lunch was delicious.

I cannot recommend this Oregon wine tour enough. My parents were in town visiting, so they invited my wife and I to come along. We had done a self-guided wine trip in the past, but A Great Oregon Wine Tour was perfect because Wayne brought us to wineries that we never would have known about or thought to stop. He... More

Wayne is awesome! So fun and knowledgeable! My friend and I had the best time! We met some amazing people that we ended up going to dinner with after the tour! Delicious lunch and delicious wines. We visited some beautiful wineries! Would highly recommend taking this tour while you're in Oregon!

Super knowledgeable guide, big and roomy shuttle, wonderful winery picks(4), and an amazing lunch midway through our day at a tasting room with an incredible view. Marcus comes highly recommended, you will not be disappointed with your choice for touring with this company :)

Our Oregon wine arrived today and reminded me once again of the great time we had on our wine tour! A perfect day from pick up to drop off at our hotel. Camille was so knowledgeable on the area, vineyards & wineries. The smaller,intimate places was exactly what we were looking for. I'm anticipating remembering that day with each bottle... More
