Ever Wonder about the Willamette Valley?

Longer days mean more sunshine for enjoying the best of the Willamette Valley. World-famous wineries pour new releases full of fruity flavors, markets and farm stands showcase the best of the region’s agriculture, and hiking trails all over the valley—and in the Cascade foothills—reveal colorful wildflower displays as winter snow starts to melt. And if you'd like to unwind at a local brewery or cidery with fresh, locally sourced cuisine, we’ve got those, too.

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.
