resized-winter-oregon-wineryWine tasting is not exclusively a summertime sport. In fact, visiting Oregon Wine Country during the wintertime offers beauty and solitude, paired with amazing wine in your hand.  Both the Willamette Valley and Columbia Valley wine regions offer the perfect little getaway, whether just for a day or for a quiet, relaxing weekend.

Voted Wine Enthusiast’s 2016 Wine Region of the Year, the Willamette Valley is not to be missed if you are a wine lover. With an abundance of tasting rooms to pop in and out of in the quaint little towns of Dundee, McMinville, Yamhill and Carlton just to name a few.

May we suggest a visit to the expansive and amazing Willamette Valley Vineyards, which received the prestigious Sunset Travel Award for Best Vineyard/Tasting Room Experience” from Sunset Magazine?  Or, let us schedule a private tasting for you and your friends at Alexana Winery. The tasting room overlooks the 80-acre vineyard property in the heart of the Willamette Valley, and the Pinot Noir is notable and not to be missed.
