Winding through the heart of Washington County’s vineyard country, this tour route beckons you to enjoy the agricultural and viticultural bounties of the Tualatin Valley, among bucolic rural scenery.

Nature & Produce Abound

Embarking from the city of Sherwood, the Vineyard & Valley Tour Route passes alongside the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge, an oasis of wetland and upland habitats within the city’s urban boundary, which is home to nearly 200 species of birds, 50 species of mammals and several endangered species of fish. You’ll soon begin passing a number of farm stands offering fresh produce; depending on the time of year, offerings include blueberries, apples, peaches, plums, hazelnuts, walnuts, raspberries, strawberries and marionberries. Many farm stands let you pick your own—it’s a great way to stretch your legs and immediately reap the rewards of your efforts!

A Wine Lover’s Paradise

Located in the northern Willamette Valley, Washington County boasts more than 35 wineries, tasting rooms and wine bars, each offering an atmosphere that is relaxed, casual and intimate. Here you’ll find yourself sampling recent vintages with the winemakers or the owners themselves. As the route turns north near the small city of Gaston, the foothills of the Coast Range provide a rugged backdrop for the rolling hills of grapes, fields and orchards—a patchwork of pastoral splendor. Along the route, in the small burgs of Gales Creek and Dilley, are two venerable vineyard estate wineries, each pouring a vast selection of cool-climate varietals. A full list of wineries is available at www.oregonswashingtoncounty.com.

Pioneer History

The Tualatin Valley was one of the earliest regions settled by Oregon Trail pioneers, and is steeped in the history of the Territory’s early days. Small communities along the route as it heads toward Hillsboro reflect the diverse peoples drawn to the region by land grant programs, including Swiss (Helvetia), Dutch (Verboort) and Scottish (Roy). A noted Scottish contribution is the Tualatin Plains Presbyterian Church (also known as the Old Scotch Church), which dates back to 1878 and boasts an unusual eight-sided steeple. Staggering views of snowcapped Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams from hillsides along the route will remind you that you’re in Oregon, not Scotland.

    It would n=be most helpful to be able to print out or download driving directions for the routes. The maps are impossible to read in the brochure (not road names) and not that easy online. Especially start and finish points are important, as they are difficult to determine form the information given.once on the route they are remarkably well sign–posted.

    TOTALLY AGREE WITH HB JOHNSON COMMENT. SEEMS LIKE A NO BRAINER TO HAVE A DOWNLOADABLE MAP.
    LOVE THE INSPIRATION BUT WOULD LIKE MORE USEABLE MAP INFORMATION.
    THANKS
