The McMinnville Foothills is a can't-miss Oregon wine tasting destination
Tucked amongst the low-lying foothills bordering the western edge of McMinnville, one hour southwest of Portland, are the wonderful wineries and vineyards of the McMinnville foothills.The unique climate of the McMinnville AVA leads to fruit that ripen slowly and can hang longer on the vine than many other Oregon regions, creating wines with intense flavor and structure. The Pinots tend to be darker and more savory than other Willamette Valley AVAs, and the white wines are often acclaimed for their bright, fruit-forward profiles.
In total there are six tasting rooms hidden in the valleys and hills of this unique winegrowing region. We've highlighted three of the best for WineryHunt members to visit for waived tastings and discounts in October 2020. Being off the beaten path a bit, this region is simply more peaceful than the crowded tasting rooms closer to Portland.
