Get Started at These Willamette Valley Tasting Rooms
Below are some of the best Willamette Valley wineries to visit during your stay in Oregon Wine Country. Keep in mind that the tasting rooms we have featured are just one of many from each AVA!
Ribbon Ridge AVA
The tasting room at Beaux Frères is small and private, offering an intimate, relaxing atmosphere. To ensure that you can have a wine expert to lead you through the tasting, you must book in advance.
Chehalem Mountains AVA
For decades, Adelsheim has focused on producing world-class wines while acting as good stewards of the land. When you visit their tasting room, you’ll enjoy phenomenal service and excellent wine.
Head to the beautiful Bergström Winery to discover excellent wine and learn about the history of the winery and the Chehalem Mountains region.

The cozy tasting room at Colene Clemens welcomes you in and sets the tone of the experience beyond, as the people who serve your wine to you are there to answer your every question. However, if it’s a beautiful day, you’ll want to sit outside and soak in the views.
Eola-Amity Hills AVA
The geology of the land that the 11-acre vineyard occupies is extremely unique to the region. Instead of relatively deep soils from floods or volcanic events, the vines must grow in a mixture of sandstone and fossilized oyster shells, resulting in the need for exacting care, which in turn results in wine of exceptional quality.
Stop by to taste current releases, inspirational bottlings from around the world, or rare wines from Antica Terra’s personal collection.
Sit back and relax in their beautiful tasting room while enjoying a flight of wine and the expansive views. You can choose from a few different experiences when you visit this Eola-Amity Hills winery, so if you would like to explore more than the tasting room, you can take a private tour of the winery or vineyard. Tastings are available by appointment only.
Rajat Parr and Sashi Moorman call upon their deep familiarity with the world of wine to inform how they approach the task of carefully tending the historic Seven Springs vineyard. Wines from this vineyard are some of the most decorated and award-winning wines in Oregon’s history.
