Small-Group Willamette Valley Wine-Tasting Tour from Portland
- All-inclusive tour
- Free drinks included
- Free snacks included
- Lunch included
- Small group ensures personal service
At each winery, you’ll meet the winemakers and take behind-the-scenes tours. Along the way, your guide will teach you about the rich ecology of the region and about the art of viticulture in Oregon, a state committed to sustainable farming practices. Since the Willamette Valley has so many outstanding wineries, each itinerary rotates with departure. Below are two examples of wineries we may visit.
Visit Durant Vineyards at Red Ridge Farms, where the Durant family has been growing grapes for almost 40 years. Enjoy several wine tastings and feast your senses on stunning scenery including lavender fields, olive groves and a plant nursery.
Finally, at Rex Hill Vineyards, you’ll see original tunnels that carted drying racks in the 1920s and see new tools like French oak and stainless steel barrels, wine presses, an in-house laboratory and the bottling line. In the tasting room, delight in pinot noirs and chardonnays.
You’ll also enjoy a Cascadian safari lunch, as well as seasonal snacks and water throughout your tour.
After your wine-tasting experience, relax on the drive back to your Portland hotel.

Great small group experience. Our driver-guide was knowledgable and friendly, just what one would expect from a day of tasting and talking wine. She also had great suggestions for the rest of our weekend in Portland. Well worth the price!

This was the most disappointing tour I have ever taken. To begin with, the driver was almost 30 min. late and did not know her way around Portland. A gourmet lunch was described. It consisted of turkey and beef sandwiched, POTATO CHIPS, and COOKIES!! To make matters worse, we were not provided lunch until 3:00 pm!! We were starving! There were no drinks or snacks available, either. There were no tours of the wineries, practically NO discussion of the ecology, viticulture and sustainable farming practices. This tour was probably worth $50 per person rather than $150.
I am quite hesitant to use Viator, again, nor could I recommend it to anyone else.
I will say we had a wonderful tour of Portland last March when Kieron Weidner was our guide.
