Northwest: Willamette Valley vs. Eastern Washington
Willamette Valley, OR
The beauty of this cool Oregon valley is that you can get lost on the backcountry roads but always find a good glass of Pinot Noir or crisp, lean Chardonnay around the bend. Need more direction? Try Pinots at Anne Amie, Freestone, and Willamette Valley Vineyards, and Chardonnays decked out in minerality instead of tons of oak at Adelsheim, Domaine Drouhin, and Chehalem.
