Meet Oregon’s Wine Country. People around the world have fallen in love with its premier pinot noir, and once you’re here it’s hard not to fall in love with the place too. Here you’ll find that communities are tight-knit, talented, and creative. While the country roads are quiet, the sweeping vistas, pods of old growth forest, and surrounding mountains standing tall speak volumes, especially in the early morning glow. The lush vineyards and charming farms are tended by families old and new who still take a personal handcrafted approach to growing the best grapes and freshest foods, and challenge themselves to do it a little differently, just as Oregonians always have. Whether the Wine Country Half Marathon is bringing you out for a day or a weekend, there are plenty of ways to get to enjoy this unique region. So kick back, relax, and stay a while!
The Willamette Valley is a huge and varied appellation that includes six distinctive American Viticultural Areas: Chehalem Mountains, Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills, McMinnville, Ribbon Ridge and Yamhill-Carlton. We encourage you to visit to the tasting rooms of some of our wonderful event winery partners, located all throughout the Willamette Valley!
