Cellar Door Wine Tours is located in the heart of the Willamette Valley American Viticultural Area, which encompasses numerous subregions—delineated by climate, soil, and other features—that are known worldwide for their pinot noir. Owners and tour guides Helen Avery and Mark Treick couldn't be more excited about their location, since their relationship is somewhat built on a mutual love of wine: their first date was to a beer and wine festival near Portland, and they moved to Oregon's wine country after their family established their own vineyard. Now, they lead couples and small groups on full-day, half-day, and à la carte tours of boutique wineries, wherein they share their enthusiasm and knowledge of Oregon's wine country and its accompanying food and culture.
