You can't do every winery here. It's not possible. And there are serveral AVAs ( American Viticulture Areas) in this valley alone. We selected the Dundee Hills AVA and visited three fabulous wineries on a recent trip. Plan to stay somewhere nearby so that you can add some lunches and dinners to your getaway. Some suggestions? Domain Drouhin, Domain Serene... More

There seems like SO much to see and do in Willamette Valley that it should have it's own destination. We took a wine tour from Portland, and we seemed to only see a small portion of the area.

But I think this is one of the most beautiful valleys on earth. Oregon is a very diverse landscape and the micro-climate of the Willamette Valley is so lush and green (because it rains so much). When you catch it on a sunny day it is absolute perfection

Visited a local winery, had a tour and wine sampling. The soil must be good because the wine sure was! It was fun and glad we did it.

The Willamette Valley is a premier wine region. There are lots of vineyards and all have tasting rooms. A great way to spend a day here and worthwhile too.

The green, lush hills are fun to drive around. Wine tasting is everywhere. You could come for just a few hours as a side trip from Portland, or stay for a week slowly exploring the area and various parks, farms and vineyards.
