Art-minded wine lovers will enjoy this corner of the Willamette Valley, 25 miles south of Portland. French-leaning Pinot Noirs regin supreme here, but you can also discover new-wave Chardonnay and exhibits by local artists. Don't miss tastings at Anam Cara, Colene Clemens, Longplay wineries. Another must? Kayaking on the Willamette River in June. For the ultimate wine country sleep, check in at Le Puy, A Wine Valley Inn, which breaks the mold of Victorian B&B frill with feng shui balance (from $195; lepuy-inn.com).
