Why Oregon

From the rolling vineyards of the Willamette Valley to the lush and dramatic coastline, our Oregon is full of exclusive tastings at top wineries, meet-ups with local vintners and winemakers, plus a night or two of magic on the Oregon Coast. Come to the Pacific Wonderland and appreciate it as only a true Oregonian could.

There is no shortage of exceptional cuisine and premium pinots, and you'll experience some of the region's most notable, from the country to the coast, with stops along the way to take in the forests, mountains and Pacific Ocean coastline.

Your Private Experience

Who It’s For

For lovers of food and wine, and anybody who loves celebrating heritage, craftsmanship and the art of fine wine.

When to Travel

Mid-May to September the weather is warm and mild. October is harvest season, with full autumn colors and cooler temperatures.

Make It Yours

Add a few nights in Portland, explore deeper in wine country, or add a few days on the coast—the choice is yours.

Itinerary Highlights

Although the focus of our trip is wine, there are so many opportunities to delve deeper into cuisine, art or craft. Here are our recommendations:

Day 1

Spend a day in Portland (we’ll set you up with a chef’s table at one of our local favorites), or head straight to wine country to celebrate farm-to-table craftsmanship in McMinnville, a charming little town in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Visit some of the region’s most notable vineyards for tasting and and in-depth appreciation of what makes this bucolic region so special. Of course, we’ll pair your bites with some of our favorite wines.

  • Private transfer from Portland
  • Winery visit and tastings
  • Dinner in McMinnville

Days 2 - 3

Start the day at Domaine Drouhin, to celebrate French soul on Oregon soil (the family’s winemaking roots were planted in Burgundy in the 1880s). Next, it’s Hazelfern Cellars for lunch and a look at a newer winery, started by Bryan and Laura Laing in their Portland basement and now an award-winning go-to for the historic farmhouse setting. You’ll take in a handful of other wineries in the region, from Stoller to Argyle, including a private tour of Adelsheim Vineyard, started by David Adelsheim back in the 1970s as the first winery in the Chehalem Mountains appellation.

  • Wine tastings at Domaine Drouhin, Hazelfern Cellars, Stoller, Argyle Winery and more
  • Private tour of Adelsheim Vineyard

Days 4 - 5

From the country to the coast, with stops along the way to take in the forests, mountains and Pacific Ocean coastline. After a fresh seafood lunch, head north up the coastline to Cannon Beach and spend the night just steps away from the ocean, with a sunset beach bonfire. You’ll have a full day here to enjoy the stunning ocean views, hike through towering forest greenery to a sprawling dramatic coastline, or simply enjoy the shops and restaurants of Cannon Beach.

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

McMinnville

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

Cannon Beach

Wake up to the gentle rhythms of the Pacific Ocean, with sweeping views of iconic Haystack Rock. You’re steps away from a 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.
