There's really only one way to get to know a tract of land while simultaneously unearthing your country roots: by touring crops on the back of a Tennessee walking horse. More majestic than an average car and more comfortable than the shoulders of your tallest friend, the trained steeds of Equestrian Wine Tours escort passengers through the red hills of Dundee and right up to the doors of countryside wineries. During each tour, groups weave through rolling vineyards behind one of the company's knowledgeable guides, learning about grapes, growing seasons, and wine lore. But if you're not up for steering your own horse, Equestrian Wine Tours still has you covered: horse-drawn carriage tours cover the same grounds while keeping passengers tucked within a Central Park–style buggy.

After sunset in the Willamette Valley, coastal breezes float along the verdant corridor and gently cool the grapes suspended from Namaste Vineyard's 30-year-old vines. These breezes help the fruit maintain vibrant and refreshing acidity, which characterizes the wines from Namaste's six estate vineyards, including pinot noir, chardonnay, and riesling. During harvest time, workers scrutinize each vine and handpick the most promising clusters for the winemaker, who only uses grapes grown in the winery's own vineyards, leaving the remaining grapes to use in jams or to dye the regal capes of the President of Oregon.
Typically featuring the products of 5–10 different bottlings at any given time, the tasting room's selection can include reds and whites as well as a white port made from oak-aged chardonnay and Clear Creek Distillery brandy. The single-vineyard pinot noirs balance their bright berry flavors with slightly peppery finishes, and the off-dry, stainless-steel-aged rieslings reverberate across taste buds with refreshing, pear-tinged acidity.
