It’s no secret that Pinot noir is our lifeblood. David Lett and other pioneering winemakers arrived in the Willamette Valley in the 1960s and the years that followed with the specific intent to produce great Pinot noir. More than 50 years later, we have become one of the world’s most celebrated sources for this iconic grape. 

And we’re only getting started. With Willamette Valley Chardonnay garnering accolades from critics and lesser-known grapes such as Grüner Veltliner, Gamay and Melon de Bourgogne finding success with innovative winemakers across the region, the ever-growing list of Willamette Valley grape varieties can safely claim to have something for every palate. Here you can search our wineries by grape variety. Be sure to keep an open mind: your next favorite Willamette Valley wine might be made from a grape you’ve never even tasted!
