Willamette Valley Winetasting Tour from Portland

by America's Hub World Tours Duration 5h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $100

The Willamette Valley wine region, once known for its fruit orchards and nurseries, has become one of the United States' premier producers of cool-climate varietals like pinot noir. Start your wine country tour with hotel pickup from downtown Portland, and make your way by Sprinter Van to three wineries carefully chosen by your in-the-know guide.

Portland is the perfect hub for exploring quiet backcountry roads through Oregon’s wine country, with more than half of the state’s 500 or so wineries located about 45 minutes away in the nearby Willamette Valley. As you drive past towns such as Newberg, Forest Grove, Sherwood and Gaston, take in beautiful vistas of gently rolling hills that give way to the expansive valley dotted by the Cascade Mountains.

With your guide, visit three of the area’s top wineries, where you'll learn about the unique relationship between the valley's volcanic soils, elevation and protective microclimates — ideal for producing pinot noir. At each winery, taste a select group of varietals that will please even the most discerning palate, from reds like syrah, cabernet Franc and cabernet sauvignon to award-winning chardonnay, barbera and riesling. At one winery you will also enjoy a cheese and cracker platter.

After your wine-tasting experience, your tour ends with return to Portland for hotel drop-off.

Our tour guide Niko was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the Oregon wine industry. He shared lots of interesting information about the Willamette Valley vineyards and the wines they produce. We stopped at three vineyards during the tour. At each vineyard, we were provided with a history of the vineyard as well as a good sampling of wines. The entire wine tasting experience is very intimate and educational. We were the only group at the first (Raptor Ridge) and second (Blizzard) vineyards that we visited. The second provided a great bread, cheese, and meat plate. There were many opportunities to ask questions and we were not rushed. All of the vineyards had gorgeous views of the countryside, but the third vineyard we visited (Ardiri) had the best view hands down. You could see Mt. Hood. I highly recommend this tour. The tour group became good friends and Niko took group photos of the group at each vineyard. It was an unforgettable and amazing experience! Thank you, Niko!
