Featured Oregon Wine Region

Cascade Foothill Wineries

An often-overlooked region of the Willamette Valley, the Cascade Foothills is home to unique, family-owned vineyards, some established more than 40 years ago. What this region may lack in sprawling vineyard estates is made up for by warm hospitality, enjoyable wines, and quick access for our members in the east Portland metro.

This region is less than 30 minutes from downtown Portland, Aurora is the gateway to the Cascade Foothills. Get Directions

Best wine tasting in Cascade Foothills
Frosty morning at Hanson Vineyards, Cascade Foothills

Hanson Vineyards

34948 S. Barlow Road, Woodburn, OR 97071
Wines: Gamay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Red Blends, White Blends

The seed of Hanson Vineyards was planted when the Hanson family arrived in Monitor, Oregon at the turn of the 20th Century and began farming this property in 1930. Over the years, they have been in dairy, berries and walnuts. Hanson Vineyards makes 100% estate-grown, small-lot, artisan wines in an ‘old world’ style. Expect bright fresh acidity, little oak influence and untamed flavors. Hanson Vineyards is the antithesis of ‘national brand’ wine. Their wines are made to be shared at table with food and friends. The Hanson Family are farmers first and are proud of their exclusively estate grown grapes. Everything starts with a selection of classic grape varietals (and some unusual ones).

Why We Love Hanson Vineyards: Their native yeast fermentations kick-off in their great-grandpa’s renovated chicken house for that extra connection to the family’s long farming history in Oregon.

St. Josef’s Winery

28836 S Barlow Rd, Canby OR 97013
Wines: Sparkling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Syrah, Red and White Blends, Merlot

Planted in 1978 and first vintage in 1983, St. Josef’s is one of the original Oregon wine pioneers. They produce affordable, enjoyable  food-friendly wines from their five estate vineyards, which are maintained without the use of irrigation, harsh chemicals or pesticides. The luxurious German-style winery and tasting room has plenty of room inside and out to spread out and enjoy the views and wines. Visitors often get to meet owners Josef and his wife Lilly, and in the summer there are often outdoor summer concerts to enjoy with a picnic.

Why We Love St. Josef’s: Outstanding views and just a nice place to relax and enjoy wine and friendly people
