Drive an electric vehicle to the vineyards of Santa Barbara County and Willamette Valley
Even serious enophiles describe Oregon wines with one word: Willamette. And one grape: Pinot Noir. It’s understandable. The Pinots produced in places like McMinnville and Dundee are among the very best in the world. The beauty of the Willamette Valley is that you can get lost on the backcountry roads but always find a good glass of Pinot around the bend.
No need to charge your EV until arriving at the first stop, Elk Cove Vineyards, 36 miles outside of Portland. They have an onsite station, as do several other Willamette Valley wineries. At the end of the day, you’ll drive 120 miles back up to Chehelam Ridge Bed & Breakfast after e-fueling at King Estate Winery. Stop in
