The wine region in the north Willamette valley, which was once known for fruit orchards and nurseries has transformed into one of the country’s premier cool-climate varietal producers. The unique relationship between volcanic Jory soils, elevation, and protective micro-climates has consistently proven ideal for vineyards, and has produced Oregon’s top Pinot Noir for decades. Visit the epicenter of Pinot country, Dundee Hills, among others, renowned for its first Pinot Noir plantings in the 60’s by Oregon’s early winemaker pioneers. Numerous sub-AVA’s (American Viticultural Areas) in the Willamette Valley has slowly established themselves as premium wine growing regions in Oregon and continues to produce world renowned Pinot Noir and many other wine varietals equalling distinguished.

WINE   

The Willamette Valley, Oregon’s leading wine region, has two-thirds of the state’s wineries and vineyards and is home to more than 500 wineries. It is recognized as one of the premier Pinot noir producing areas in the world. Buffered from Pacific coast storms by the Coast Range, the Willamette Valley maritime influence aids in the benefit to provide the best conditions possible for growing the cool-climate grape variety for which Oregon is best known, Pinot noir and Pinot Gris.
By this measure the Willamette Valley compares favorably with the Burgundy and Alsace regions of France.
