When visiting Oregon, I highly recommend taking in wine tasting in the Willamette Valley. Despite the rainy weather that day, it was a wonderful experience! Mainly in part to the rainy weather in the Northwest, because the rolling hills and vineyards were some of the most lush, green, and abundant that I’ve ever seen. We toured 3 different wineries, and were driven around in a large van by an expert on Oregon’s wine country. If you’re going to wine taste, do it right and hire a driver! Not only was it nice to not worry about someone in our party having to hold back on the tastings as the designated driver, but our driver was also very well versed in all things Oregon wine. We were able to sit back, relax, and learn some really neat things along the way. Here are some photos of our tour!
