What You Can Expect

Small-Group Willamette Valley Wine-Tasting Tour from Portland

Durant Vinyards

After pickup from your downtown Portland hotel, take a scenic drive by luxury vehicle to Willamette Valley, a region boasting nearly 400 wineries and tasting rooms. With your expert guide, visit three acclaimed boutique wineries in an intimate and relaxed setting.

At each winery, you’ll sample fine wine and learn more about the rich ecology of the region and the art of viticulture in Oregon, a state committed to sustainable farming practices. Since the Willamette Valley has so many outstanding wineries, each itinerary rotates with departure. Below are two examples of wineries we may visit.

One winery we may visit is Durant Vineyards at Red Ridge Farms, where the Durant family has been growing grapes for almost 40 years. Enjoy several wine tastings and feast your senses on stunning scenery including lavender plants, olive groves and a plant nursery.

Another option is Rex Hill Vineyards, where you’ll delight in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in their beautifully appointed tasting room that was formally a fruit and nut drying facility. Taste their fine wine and then wander down the original cart tunnels to check out their wine memorabilia and area maps.

On all our tours, you’ll enjoy a delicious meat and cheese plate at one of our winery stops to freshen your palate, as well as other seasonal snacks and water throughout your tour.

After your wine-tasting experience, relax on the drive back to your downtown Portland hotel.

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!

4 star rating: Recommended July 2015

Our wine tour was great. Brad was an excellent tour guide. Hit 3 wineries and an olive oil gift shop in an afternoon. Really nice Mercedes van. Picked us up and dropped us off at hour hotel. Would definitely do it again.

3 star rating: Worth doing May 2015

We had a great day for touring. Nice and knowledgeable tour guides. Great lunch at a very scenic winery. Unfortunately tour did not seem long enough. It was disappointing to not taste more wine, especially since we were not driving. The wine pours were noticeably small at every winery we visited.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2014

This was the most disappointing tour I have ever taken. To begin with, the driver was almost 30 min. late and did not know her way around Portland. A gourmet lunch was described. It consisted of turkey and beef sandwiched, POTATO CHIPS, and COOKIES!! To make matters worse, we were not provided lunch until 3:00 pm!! We were starving! There were no drinks or snacks available, either. There were no tours of the wineries, practically NO discussion of the ecology, viticulture and sustainable farming practices. This tour was probably worth $50 per person rather than $150.
I am quite hesitant to use Viator, again, nor could I recommend it to anyone else.
I will say we had a wonderful tour of Portland last March when Kieron Weidner was our guide.
