Enjoy the ambient outdoor patio at Lady Hill Winery as you explore the nuances of their selection.
Wilsonville is surrounded on all sides by Oregon’s wine country. Grab your pals and start sipping in Sherwood, home to J Rallison Cellars(A). This boutique winery focuses on single-vineyard red and white varietals from the Northwest that are exclusively sold at the winery and tasting room.
Start your second day of wine tasting in Wilsonville at Terra Vina Wines and Vineyard Tasting Room(E) (reopens in May). Known for big reds, Terra Vina was the first in the Willamette Valley to grow Dolcetto and Cabernet Franc varietals.
Experience excellent food and wine pairings at the Aurora Colony Vineyards & Winery. The dining area offers cuisine that partners perfectly with their small-batch wines.
Admire the rolling hills of a PNW sunset with a glass of seasonal wine.
Visit the heated tasting patio at Twill Cellars(H) for a smaller, more intimate wine experience. You might even be welcomed by Mica, the Bernese Mountain Dog and winery ambassador. Here, the wines spend 18 to 22 months in mostly neutral barrels with no added yeasts or enzymes, and minimal SO2 during aging to allow some of the fruit-forward character in young wines to decrease, emerging more land- and seasonal-specific characteristics.
There are more than 300 wineries in the area. For the oldest Pinot Gris vines in the state, visit Campbell Lane Winery. Nearby wine trails include: Cascade Foothills Wineries, Mt. Hood Territory Wine Trail, Tri-County Wine Charm Trail and Tualatin Valley Wine Trails.
Call ahead or check online for winery hours—reservations are often encouraged. Wilsonville makes a great basecamp for your wine country trip. Stay the night (or two). Check out the Foodie Trip itinerary for places to eat in between tastings!
