Willamette Valley Vineyards


On a hilltop just off Interstate-5 near Turner, Oregon lies one of the premier wineries in Oregon.  The tasting room is perched on top of a hill overlooking the valley below.  Weddings are common on these facilities, and concerts are held here in the summer.   The tasting list is tops in the Willamette Valley region, with over 25 wines available for tasting, ranging from their signature Pinot Noir to Viognier to Muscat to Syrah.  Clearly the cream of the crop are their stunning varieties of Pinot Noir, with the 1998 Founder's Reserve tempting our taste buds in just the right way.    We also trotted home with a bottle or two of the Griffin Creek line, always excellent.   Willamette Valley's wines have been featured in the Top 100 wines in the world, and have won numerous awards, on display in their trophy room.  

We've visited this winery several times, and the ambience is excellent.  With a large deck and chairs out back, overlooking the vineyard and the valley below, we often bring a picnic and enjoy a glass of wine while relaxing or listening to Jazz in season.   They have standard fare in the tasting room, from t-shirts to mustard to chocolates to wine glasses.  To reach the vineyard, travel south of Portland on I-5, past Salem, and take the Turner exit.  Take a left under the freeway, and travel just past the Enchanted Forest where you'll see the sign on the left.  You can see more photos of the vineyard in our Oregon Slide Show.
