Oregon’s Willamete Valley
Situated at the same latitude as France’s Burgundy wine region, the Willamette Valley is an oenophile Eden and just a 30-minute drive from Portland. A more laid-back and less-glamorous version
of Sonoma, it contains more than 500 wineries and produces incredible Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays and Pinot Gris.
It is possible to make a day trip to the valley, but travelers wishing to stay the night should book a room at the Allison Inn & Spa, by far the most luxurious hotel in the region, with an incredible spa and culinary program. Couples, in particular, will appreciate its wellness focus and beautiful setting, among rolling vineyards that are often shrouded in a soft mist.
