Willamette Valley has incredible wines! The BEST Pinot Noir and some very delicious white wines too!

My daughter was married at Willamette Valley Vineyard. What a surreal setting with the rolling hills, full of grapes, Sweet-smelling, scenic area with hills and mountains everywhere..

There is no finer Pinot Noir anywhere in North America. The vineyards breath taking and the hospitality is outstanding. We highly suggest putting this area on your bucket list.

OK- let's get this out of the way first. If you are staying in Oregon on vacation, you really have 4 choices: The Willamette Valley (pronounced Will-am-ut), Bend, Portland, or the Oregon Coast.

This is lib town all up and down the valley. Nothing but weirdos and freaks. If you are a normal American, avoid this craphole.

If you LOVE your Pinot, you will love Willamette Valley! There are so many great wineries that we didn't have time to visit, so consecutive trips may be called for. Rainy and cold in February, so if you are craving sun, not the best time, but we found lots to do anyway. Great food scene, as well.

It's just a bunch of grass and bushes! I'm not sure I would even consider it a destination but more of a place you pass through to get where you are going. I've seen much uglier landscapes so, I guess it's got that going for it...?

... I forgot to add 'brews' to the listing here... the Willamette Valley is home to ORegon State University and the University of Oregon, but also grows nearly all the grass seed in the U.S., much of Oregon's wine and has many many many wonderful breweries. There are online guides for drviing the wine country, and brew pub maps at... More
