<p>The Willamette Valley is Oregon&rsquo;s premier wine region. With a milder climate than any growing area in California, cool-climate grapes like Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris thrive here, and are being transformed into world-class wines. We&rsquo;ve picked our favorite wineries, tasting rooms, and restaurants for this wine-fueled itinerary. The Chehalem Mountain and Ribbon Ridge AVAs highlighted here offer more than 150 vineyards. Best of all, the region is less than an hour away from Portland, making for an easy day trip.&nbsp;Start out early, especially on weekends, and don&rsquo;t forget your designated driver.<br><em>By Dave Sandage and John Doerper</em></p>
