You may have heard about our music, our beer, our Mount Hood views over the river, our bridges, our basketball, our rain and even our donuts. But did you know Portland has a thriving wine culture, from a tight-knit circle of urban wineries to incredible wine bars, shops and restaurants? Portland is within the boundaries of the Willamette Valley AVA and less than half an hour’s drive from wine country proper, while boasting the largest selection of accommodations, nightlife, shopping and dining in the state. It’s no wonder the City of Roses is a popular home base for wine-loving travelers.
