While most Willamette Valley wineries are known for Pinot Noir in its classic red wine form, did you know that this is also a popular varietal for sparking wines? With Chardonnay as a close second. In fact, Willamette Valley wineries produce more than 80 percent of the Pinot Noir in the entire state of Oregon—with around 19,000 acres dedicated to the delicate grape. While we love a big glass of luscious and bright red, there’s something about the holidays and the New Year that calls for Oregon sparkling wine.
As a guest at our Willamette Valley Bed and Breakfast, you’ll have access to the fantastic wine portfolio of Youngberg Hill and Bailey Family Wines at our on-site tasting room. An especially nice perk for our overnight guests is discounted prices on our tasting opportunities. You’ll love sipping our wine, learning more about our bio-dynamic farming practices, and then retreating to your luxurious guest suite just steps away in our beautiful hilltop Inn. If you decide to head out to the other nearby Willamette Valley wineries, you’ll be within a quick drive to a lovely selection of our favorite neighboring winemakers.
