Overview

Visit boutique wineries in Oregon’s famed Willamette Valley with a WSET-certified sommelier as your guide. Enjoy the picturesque scenery as you sample wines at three or more wineries. Your sommelier is on hand to tell you about each wine you taste and to help you diversify your wine collection. This semi-private tour is limited to six people and includes tastings, hassle-free transportation, charcuterie, and more.

What to Expect

The Willamette Valley of Oregon is home to some of the best wine in the Pacific Northwest. Bordered by the green coastal ranges to the west and the snow-capped Cascade Range to the east, the valley features rich alluvial soils washed down from ice-age floods and numerous microclimates along scenic waterways and rustic farms. Although the area offers an abundance of varietals and styles for the discerning wine drinker, it is probably best known for its world-class Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs – the famed grapes of Burgundy in France. 

After your complimentary morning pickup from your centrally located Portland hotel, residence or central landmark, the tour begins with a brief introduction from your driver and guide – who also happens to be a WSET-certified sommelier. As you leave the frenetic pace of the city behind, your guide will fill you in on the local history and unique qualities that make the region such an ideal place for growing high-quality, premium wine grapes. Also, from April to October this six-hour public tour includes a pickup at the Newberg Sportsman Airpark in conjunction with our hot air balloon package.  

Your tour will visit between 3 and 4 wineries throughout the day and include bottled water, healthy snacks and a complimentary lunch featuring vegetarian and gluten-free options. Tasting fees are included for all stops up to $15 and you will have abundant options to purchase, ship, and sample additional wines at your own discretion and cost. The trip ends with a drop-off back at centrally located Portland locations or the Newberg Airpark, where you can proceed to nearby neighborhood restaurants to sample the local fare or back to your hotel or lodging to sleep off the amazing wine.

Note: Groups of two or three may be combined with your approval.
