Visit to Oregon and Washington wineries - please help

Jump to last reply

We're in the process of planning a trip up north to visit Oregon and Washington wineries. We prefer smaller wineries that do good wines but aren't well-known outside their own region/state. Since we tend to visit a lot of wineries, those that offer free tastings will get some priority from us, but we will pay for tasting at a good winery.

Problem is, it's been years since I've visited the Willamette Valley and even more years since for Eastern Washington, so I'm at a loss as to which are the "good" wineries. Can you please help?

What are the good small wineries in Oregon and Washington? Is the Rogue Valley wineries worthwhile? What about the Columbia River wineries?

We usually come home with several cases of local wines. Are there any wines this year that you would specifically recommend acquiring, wines that can't get obtained outside of Oregon/Washington?

TIA for any help you can give us!
