Community & Collaboration
In some wine regions, competition is fierce and tensions can be high. But in the Willamette Valley, you’re much more likely to find winemakers and wine country folks collaborating on a technical tasting or special event, sharing equipment and know-how during one of Oregon’s “surprise weather” situations, and dressing up in Halloween costumes to surprise each other during harvest. Expect your tasting room and lodging hosts to have great recommendations for other places to visit, and don’t be surprised if you hear many of the same people’s names turn up in everyone’s stories. We’re a vast region, but we’re also a close community, and we take care of each other. And when you visit, we’ll take care of you.
