South Willamette Valley Wineries
A sojourn for the soul
Considering that the Willamette Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA) has 507 wineries and six sub-AVAs within its borders, it might take a lifetime to visit all the tasting rooms and vineyards in this rich region. Many of the most dedicated oenophiles stick to the wondrous wine roads of the north — Highway 47 (aka Sip 47), with a dozen stops for sipping, and Highway 99 West through Newberg, Dundee and McMinnville. But happy are the savvy souls who continue south to experience the richness of the wineries in the South Willamette Valley.
Here’s just a taste of what you’ll find: Highway 18 West takes you through the H.B. Van Duzer Forest State Scenic Corridor. Drop in to experience the estate wines from Château Bianca and many other wineries located on this route. Carry on to Cardwell Hill Cellars in Philomath. For the trifecta of Oregon wine experiences, travel Route 200 right to the cellar doors of Broadley Vineyards, Benton-Lane Winery and King Estate. Looking to be pampered? With just a 10-minute diversion off Route 200 in Junction City, you can visit the luxurious Pfeiffer Vineyards. For more viniferous inspiration, visit the South Willamette Valley Wineries Association and Oregon Wine Board websites. To plan your trip in the Willamette Valley, go to OregonWineCountry.org.
