Welcome to the Northern Willamette Valley Wine Country
Come for the Wine; Stay for the Stories
The Tualatin Valley sits in the northwestern corner of the Willamette Valley, known for its abundant number of wineries and vineyards, and its exquisite varietals of wine, such as Pinot Noir. While the Pinot Noir put the valley—and the state—on the wine map, the sheer diversity of varietals keeps wine lovers coming. This is Oregon Wine Country.
The Willamette Valley was named Wine Enthusiast magazine’s “2016 Wine Region of the Year”!
Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris are among the dozens of varietals here, along with Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, and the seasonal Rosé, which are available at the more than 30 wineries in the Tualatin Valley.
We love wine, and once you visit, you will understand why our winemakers are passionate about the wines they make, and we are, too.
