Welcome to the Valley for all.
Visit a Willamette Valley vintner and you’ll feel at home from the get-go. The whole family is welcome to sit on cozy tasting room couches to soak up the sweeping views. Yes, you may be put to work stomping grapes – and you will definitely leave with the resident dog’s hair all over your pants – but hey, you’re family now.
If wine isn’t at the top of your whole family’s wishlist, not to worry. We’ve got plenty of events and attractions for everyone in your group. We welcome you to sleep in a giant old-growth tree, ride in a race car at a motor sports museum, slip and slide down a retired airplane and ride on a hand-carved animal round and round a historic carousel.
While the wine is wonderful – it’s just the beginning in the Willamette Valley.
