Description

Delve into the world-class Pinot noir of the Willamette Valley, and discover some of the other wines Pacific Northwest vintners are producing, in this tour meant to explore wineries whose names you may not have heard before — but you won’t forget. Your wine industry-experienced guide will take you to four tasting rooms with smaller case production but very big stories, views and flavors. Expect a deep and broad exploration of the terroir, history, and geology that influence the wines of the Willamette Valley, and surrounding regions. To facilitate flexibility of the itinerary, tasting fees are not included; a cheese platter will be served.

Your guide will pick you up at your hotel in Portland by 10:00am.  You'll drive 30-90 minutes to your first winery in the Willamette Valley.  During the drive, your host will get a feel for what remaining stops may be best suited to the group, and special requests will be considered and discussed.  After the first winery, we'll meander back toward Portland through the heart of Willamette Valley wine country.  At the second tasting room, you'll be given a cheese platter.  From there we'll continue on to another location to taste wine.  Lest you think your journey is done, we'll visit a final vineyard. Over the course of the day you'll see multiple viticultural sub-regions of the Willamette Valley, up to and including the Eola-Amity Hills, the Red Hills of Dundee, Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton, the Chehalem Mountains, and the western Tualatin Valley.  Your professional guide will provide commentary and conversation throughout the day.  You'll be returned to your hotel at the end of the journey.
