Overview
Discover one of the country’s most acclaimed wine regions when you book this full-day tour of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Meet your guide (a WSET-trained wine expert) in the morning at your Portland accommodation, and set off with just a small group for company. As you go, admire the spectacular Pacific Northwest scenery, and visit up to four wineries. At each, you’ll go on behind-the-scenes tours, will do plenty of sampling, and will learn about the locally cultivated varietals. You’ll also enjoy a gourmet, charcuterie-platter lunch.
Highlights
    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 seven-hour public tour includes a pickup at the Newberg Sportsman Airpark in conjunction with our hot air balloon package.  

    Your tour will visit 3 to 4 wineries throughout the day and include bottled water, healthy snacks and a complimentary lunch featuring vegetarian and gluten-free options (usually a diverse charcuterie platter enjoyed at our second winery).  Tasting fees are included for all stops up to $20 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.

    I can’t say enough good things about this tour! It was by far the most informative, fun, and laid back winery tour we’ve been on. Everything was included. The wineries we visited were excellent. The scenery was amazing! But the best part of this tour was our guide, Dan. He

    From great to spectacular....now that's something! Thank you so much. I designed these tours to be interactive and educational but also fun, so I'm glad you enjoyed our approach. It really is something slightly different than everyone else and your recommendation is appreciated. Thank you again. Cheers! Dan

    Only visited 3 wineries, but they are good representations of their AVA's. Our driver provided a wealth of information about the region and Oregon wines in particular. It was a benefit to have the tastings paid for at the three wineries we visited. Quick, easy transportation

    Thank you Paul, but I’m not sure what you mean by river/manager? Maybe you meant driver? The correct term is Tour Guide or Sommelier since we are all certified wine professionals. Three wineries is plenty for most people to showcase the Valley’s diversity (as you’ve mentioned) and avoid palate fatigue and not rush. Please consider a Private Wine Tour next time which allows us to curate a tour specific to your needs. Use code “wineagain” and enjoy 15% off your next tour. Cheers! Dan

    I love that title! Thank you so much for sharing your experience. These really are meant to be personal tours and not just transportation with on-board commentary. I'm glad you had a good day and I hope I'll see you again soon. Cheers! Dan

    The day spent with Triangle Wine Tours and Emily, our engaging, knowledgeable, and personable guide, couldn't have been better. I had initially thought I needed to visit as many wineries as the day would allow but the 3 wineries Emily chose were perfect. The wines, the

    Oh, thank you. I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed the day and share with other people why we're different and I think special. We choose the wineries to showcase the Valley's diversity and to help us teach and educate about why the Valley is a unique wine region. Thanks again. Hopefully, we'll do it again. Cheers! Emily

    We went on a tour of the Willamette valley with Justina that was amazing! She made sure that we got what we wanted out of the trip and took us to 4 unique wineries. Wines were delicious and views were stunning. Would definitely recommend booking with Triangle Wine Tours!
