Ever Wonder about the Willamette Valley?

Frost-covered farms cover the Willamette Valley, twinkling lights brighten bustling downtown cores, and steaming hot cocoa warms us up around the fire—all signs that winter has arrived. As winter unfolds, here’s a look at what’s new and what to do this season.

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. With a temperate climate and rich soils, the Willamette Valley is the perfect growing environment for Pinot noir, Pinot gris and Chardonnay grapes. Utilizing the valley’s rich natural resources, the Willamette Valley is host to internationally acclaimed wineries whose winemakers set themselves apart through collaboration, sustainability leadership and passionate winemaking.

When you spend time winding your way through Oregon's Wine Country you quickly realize it's easy to get a bit sidetracked by all there is to see and do in the Willamette Valley. Discover restaurants, breweries, places to stay and more in our visitors guide. Use our map explorer and wine pages to find go-to destinations and build your own customized trip. (And be sure to visit our COVID-19 Travel Information page for the latest updates.)
