The Willamette Valley is known for boutique wineries and stunning vistas.  Your guide will be our owner, Dan K. Johnson or another WSET Certified Personal Sommelier who knows, loves and appreciates the wine country.  This an intimate look at the Willamette Valley as our personal guest to see how these wines compare to wines around the world.  This is no ordinary wine tour!

Our preferred tour vehicle is our 2016 Honda Odyssey which seats six guests very comfortably. This is truly a personal wine country experience as you visit the wineries and winemakers we call friends.  Dan K. Johnson has been visiting the wine country for more than 20 years and curates our tours each year based on quality, price, and expression of terroir. These are curated tours that usually last five hours and can include barrel tastings, cellar visits or vineyard walks.  We typically depart around 9:00 am (depending on the time of year) with our first wine tasting at 10:00 am.  From April to October, this tour departs from the Newberg Sportsman Airpark in conjunction with our hot air balloon packages. From November to March, we depart from central locations around Portland.  Are you visiting Portland and need a ride?  No problem.  We'll pick you up from many Portland area hotels or a central location FREE so you can join this wine tour...space is limited!  Book your wine tour and transportation early to ensure your space.

    Tours are also available in the Columbia Valley Gorge (just East of Portland) as well as our Urban Wineries!  While the Willamette Valley specializes in Pinot Noir with rolling hills reminiscent of Burgundy, the Gorge features various Bordeaux red varietals and sweeping vistas of the Columbia River.  Looking to book a large group?  Check out our Private Large Group Wine Tours or contact us for more details.
