Willamette Valley - Oregon Wine Country
Welcome to the Oregon Wine Country, where wine is just the beginning. From historic towns to quirky cities, craft breweries to farm stands, the Willamette Valley offers inviting escapes up and down every curve of the river corridor.
With more than 500 wineries, the Willamette Valley is a great destination for wine lovers – but you'll discover that there’s more to Oregon Wine Country than what’s in the glass.
Willamette Valley, a destination for dreamers, was born at the end of the last ice age, when 25+ massive floods swept through the Columbia River Gorge, depositing rich, diverse soils in the 150-mile stretch between Portland and Eugene. Today the Willamette Valley’s allure has everything to do with these soils — its farm-to-fork food scene, a world-class wine industry and the pioneering nature of its people, who come here to build and live the good life.
You'll find lush vineyards and farms, tended by families passionate about growing the best wine grapes and freshest foods. You’ll meet chefs who turn this bounty into mouthwatering farm-to-table cuisine. You’ll sip some of the world’s finest Pinot noir. And you’ll discover rivers, trails and mountains beckoning to your inner explorer.
Oregon Wine Country is recognized as one of the premier Pinot noir producing areas in the world but other cool-climate varieties such as Pinot gris, Pinot blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling and Gewürztraminer are equally at home here.
