You’re standing in vineyards sipping the best Pinot noir you’ve ever tasted, surrounded by the very vines from where it was sourced. The bustling city and ocean are both just a stone’s throw away but you’re in a different world. This isn’t France, Germany, Argentina, even Napa. This is wine country the Oregon way. The people who planted these grapes 50 years ago were considered crazy. They were laughed at for the idea that quality wines could be produced here. How wrong those naysayers were. You raise a glass and toast the true pioneers of Oregon.

Your companions on this incredible five-day journey are among Oregon’s most celebrated names in wine. Experience award-winning vineyards including Soter, Argyle, Résonance and Adelsheim with private tours and tastings, and be the honored guests at a private dinner with David Adelsheim at his home overlooking vines he planted back in the early 1970s. Then it’s off to the lush and dramatic Oregon Coast to taste oysters fresh from the Pacific, and cozy up at a beachside bonfire under the stars.

If you love celebrating heritage, craftsmanship and the art of fine wine, this trip is for you. If you dream of valleys overflowing with vineyards and a coastline like none you’ve experienced before, join us. Come to the Pacific Wonderland and appreciate it as only a true Oregonian could.

Day by Day

This two-part journey highlights the best of the state, from the rolling fields of the Willamette Valley to the lush and dramatic coastline. Enjoy private tours and tastings at vineyards plus a private dinner with pioneering winemaker David Adelsheim.

Day 1

Welcome to Oregon, the Pacific wonderland of America! Today we celebrate farm-to-table craftsmanship in McMinnville, a charming little town in the heart of the Willamette Valley with no shortage of exceptional cuisine and premium pinots. We’ll visit some of the region’s most notable vineyards for tasting and in-depth appreciation of what makes this bucolic region so special. Of course, we’ll pair our bites with some of our favorite wines for just the occasion.

And with that, as the sun sets over the valley’s bucolic hills, we’ll raise a glass at a glorious welcome dinner at Soter Vineyards with Chef Clayton Allen. It’s the perfect start to our adventure together.

Day 2

After breakfast we head to Résonance, Maison Louis Jadot’s first winery outside of France. Their premier and grand cru vineyards in Burgundy were founded in 1859, the same year as the State of Oregon; they are in the Willamette Valley today because they recognize it is Oregon, more so than California, whose soils and climate unlocks the potential of Pinot noir in the United States.

After a tour and tasting, we’re off to Argyle Winery for lunch paired with their award-winning Pinots and Chardonnays. After some downtime back at our hotel, we close with a private tour of Adelsheim Vineyard, started by David Adelsheim back in the 1970s as the first winery in the Chehalem Mountains appellation. Adelsheim will take us through the process and finish with dinner at the home of David Adelsheim and Eugenia Keegan. Hosting along with them is a Portland-based husband-wife-duo crafting food that makes wine the star of the show. What they’re pairing tonight? Only the finest library wines from David’s private cellar.

Day 3

From the country to the coast, with stops along the way to take in the forests, mountains and raw and rugged Oregon coast. Our first stop is in Netarts Bay for a taste of the true salt of the earth: lunch at the historic US Coast Guard Boathouse with fresh caught crab, local oysters and Adelsheim Pinot blanc vintages. It doesn’t get any fresher than this.

After lunch, we’ll head north up the coast to Cannon Beach, our home for two nights. We’ll check into our hotel, just steps away from the ocean, then take the evening and dinner for ourselves in our oceanfront home base.

Day 4

Start off the day with coffee and stunning ocean views. After breakfast, we’ll head out on an easy 4.5-mile hike up to Cape Falcon, where towering forest greenery gives way to a sprawling dramatic coastline high above the crashing waves. For lunch, we’ll take a break from high-class wines for some spectacular local craft brews with a private tour and meal at Public Coast Brewing Co., cooked specially for us with ingredients sourced from Public Coast’s very own farms.

We’ll get the afternoon to check out Cannon Beach a bit more: explore the pristine beach and marine life around Haystack Rock, or just pop along the shops and galleries. Just be sure to work up an appetite for what’s next: a farewell dinner prepared exclusively for us by a local chef, anchored in the Pacific bounty of Dungeness crab, oysters from Netarts Bay, and maybe even chanterelles foraged from the coastal mountains. We’ll round out the evening with a beach bonfire to stargaze, bubbles in one hand, a s’more in the other, and reflect on the last bit of salty air and pristine views.

Day 5

After a farewell breakfast, we’ll head to Portland and say goodbye to this true Pacific Wonderland. Our time together may be over, but we leave with new bonds made with our fellow adventurers, and with our palates enlightened and our spirits recharged.

Where We Sleep

The heart and soul of wine country and a cozy beachfront resort: Our boutique hotels reflect the beauty and spirit of Oregon.

Atticus Hotel

McMinnville

An intimate stay on the doorstep of wine country, the Atticus boasts local artwork and brands throughout its 36 spacious modern rooms. Every angle is carefully curated—down to their Pendleton wool bathrobes you’ll never want to take off. Enjoy Oregon luxury in its purest form.

Surfsand Resort

Cannon Beach

Wake up to the gentle rhythms of the Pacific Ocean, with sweeping views of iconic Haystack Rock. At the Surfsand, you’re steps away from a sprawling sandy coastline and the local shops and restaurants that make Cannon Beach a go-to for any true Portlander. If the beach somehow isn’t relaxing enough, the on-site massages and sauna will be.

Dinner with David & Eugenia at their home—incredible! They were so warm, engaging and generous.
