Ever Wonder about the Willamette Valley?

Crisp mornings, dew-covered crops, and colorful foliage—yes, fall is here. As the temperatures cool, vintners are preparing for harvest, breweries are producing juicy fresh-hop beers, and farmers are picking the last of the season’s produce. Here’s a look at what’s new this autumn from your favorite vintners, farmers, brewers, chefs, and more.

Situated only a few miles from the hustle and bustle of Portland, the Willamette Valley seems like a world away – back roads beckon visitors to explore the lush rolling hills, historic communities and farmer’s markets that showcase the region’s local produce.
