Willamette Valley Vineyards, one of the largest wine producers in the state, sits high on a hill overlooking the Willamette Valley, and with its large facility and fabulous views, it's about as close to a Napa Valley wine-tasting experience as you'll find in Oregon. With nearly 20 wines usually available for tasting and several separate labels represented, Willamette Valley manages to produce wines to please almost every palate and pocketbook. Be sure to try the reserve wines, for which there is a $6 tasting fee (daily at 1pm; includes a winery tour). Private tours ($15) can also be arranged.
