A Wine Tasting Itinerary in Downtown Dundee, Oregon
Thanks to its convenient location on Highway 99W, Dundee is one of Oregon's most recognizable and popular wine tasting regions
Downtown Dundee is becoming an increasingly enjoyable place to spend time. The new bypass helped cut down on traffic through town, allowing for the ability to cross between the tasting rooms that line both sides of the highway. New tasting rooms and restaurants pop up in Dundee regularly, and some of Oregon's most acclaimed wineries are located both downtown and in the nearby Dundee Hills.
