10:00 AMPickup at your hotel or residence. Drive west through the beautiful countryside of Yamhill or Washington County. This area produces the majority of Oregon’s famous Pinot Noir. En route, your guide will provide commentary on the history of Oregon wines and explain what to expect in the tasting rooms for anyone experiencing wine tasting for the first time. We are happy to take input on the wineries we visit. It is best to do this ahead of time, because we need to make appointments for our visits.
