Cascade Foothills Winegrowers
Fifteen family-owned wineries situated throughout the East Willamette Valley band together to form the Cascade Foothills Winegrowers Tour, which acquaints guests with the picturesque scenery and unique wines of their historic growing region. The wineries regularly host events that let attendees loose to sample newly released varietals and talk with artisan vintners amid the sounds of the best live music not performed by saxophone-playing raisins. Home to more than 1,500 acres of vineyard, the closest vineyard area to Portland. Experience award-winning Pinot Noir & Pinot Gris: but also Gamay, Chardonnay, Tempranillo, Syrah and more.
