Your 5-hour tour begins with afternoon pickup from your central Portland hotel. Relax as the luxury coach makes the 45-minute drive to Newberg – the gateway to Oregon’s wine country! Accompany your expert guide on a southbound journey through this enchanting region, composed of nearly 250 wineries, lush farms and passionate artisan producers. 

Visit three acclaimed boutique wineries such as Durant Vineyards at Red Ridge Farms, where tastings are complemented by a romantic stroll through lavender gardens and olive groves. Then perhaps head to Rex Hill Vineyards for a delightful tasting in their beautifully converted fruit and nut drying room. Sip on hand-selected wines, including Rex Hill’s renowned pinot noirs and pinot gris, paired with delicious artisanal cheeses before exploring the original wine cart tunnels and chatting with vintners. 

The small-group format ensures that you get a custom experience. Depending on the season and group interest, your knowledgable local guide will design a dream itinerary. At each winery, you’ll taste fine wine, stroll through historic facilities and savor delicious meat and cheese plates, as well as other seasonal snacks.

Stephanie was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide. There were only four of us and that was fine.

We were able to visit a small number of wineries representative of the Oregon wine industry.
It was enjoyable, relaxing and educational. What more could you ask for.

My husband and I had an amazing wine tour with our guide, Lawrence! He was a wealth of knowledge not only on the wine tour but about Portland. It was our first-time visit to Portland so he recommended places we should go and taste! And we did....great recommendations! The wineries that were chosen were superb! We ended up buying bottles of wine at each stop! Thank you Lawrence for an amazing tour!

Our guide was awesome! So friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the grape growing process. She interacted with all of us and brought us together in conversation. There were only 6 of us on this tour and my daughter and I enjoyed their company. Fun conversing with women from Ireland and Mexico. Visiting 3 vineyards was the perfect amount.

Great small group experience. Our driver-guide was knowledgable and friendly, just what one would expect from a day of tasting and talking wine. She also had great suggestions for the rest of our weekend in Portland. Well worth the price!

If you like the wine tasting experience and Pinot Noir specifically, you'll like this tour! Our guide provided a general history of the region, and the Willamette Valley's formation into one of the important wine growing regions in the world. We visited three wineries - a small boutique winery, a mid-scale winery and a large scale one. Each represented a different way of making and marketing wine, and you can really taste the uniqueness in each one.
