VISIT OREGON WINE COUNTRYjessw
Planning a visit to Oregon wine country?
As you explore Oregon, you’ll notice that our wine regions all have their own distinct styles. In the marine-influenced Willamette Valley, cool-climate grapes such as Pinot noir, Pinot gris, Riesling and Chardonnay have garnered a global reputation for varietal character. In the warmer vineyards of Southern Oregon and the Walla Walla Valley, varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Viognier are earning top scores from national critics. And in the Columbia Gorge, the span of microclimates allow winemakers and growers the luxury of working with the widest range of grape varieties of anywhere in the state, from Arneis to Zinfandel.
But whether you venture north, south, east or west, you’ll find Oregon’s winemakers are united by their love of the land, their drive to make the very best with what each vintage provides and the enthusiasm with which they want to share the fruits of their labor. Stop in to one of nearly 500 tasting rooms to experience our passion for yourself.
