For some of the most prized Pinot noir in the world, take a tour of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, that begins 40 minutes southwest of Portland. It all started with a handful of wine enthusiasts in the late 1960s, and has since bloomed to today’s 250 wineries. What attracts them to the area is the red volcanic earth combined with Oregon’s cool climate and long summer days—perfect conditions for Pinot noir and other delicate grapes.
