It's a good time to visit Willamette Valley vineyards

It's summertime in Oregon's Willamette Valley and it's a perfect time to visit the area's vineyards. With more than 200 wineries that call the valley home, there's something for everyone. Here's a sampling for you to consider:
A boutique winery focusing on limited production of Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Pinot gris. Sourcing the fruit from varying soils, elevations, microclimates, and clones is essential to creating wines that express what the Willamette Valley has to offer.
Barking Frog Winery produces small lots of handcrafted wines with complexity and elegance. Our grapes are sourced from sustainably farmed vineyards in the Willamette Valley, Oregon and Yakima Valley in Washington that express the “somewhereness” of the sites. Production includes Pinot Noir, Syrah, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon.
In 1987, Cooper Mountain Vineyards began a quest that has brought us to more than 100 acres, a commitment to affordable wines, and an expanded tasting room. Today Cooper Mountain offers certified organic and biodynamic Pinot noir, Pinot gris, and Chardonnay wines. We invite you to come and be a part of our story.
