A Taster’s Tour: Corvallis to Albany

Explore Oregon wine and enjoy gorgeous rural vistas on this suggested itinerary for the Mid-Willamette Valley Food Trail.

If your visit coincides with summer, pick northern highbush blueberries at Kiger Island Blues or enjoy apples and sweet cider in the fall. Afterward visit bike-friendly First Alternative Co-op, a Corvallis staple since 1970, to pack a picnic of local organic foods.

If it’s a tasty hot-cooked meal you prefer, stop in at The Dizzy Hen in downtown Philomath for phenomenal farm-fresh breakfast fare.

Begin your afternoon adventure west of Philomath, where Pheasant Court Winery is known for distinctive big reds and dry whites. Neighboring Compton Family Wines produces fruit-forward, earthy wines using French cooperage.

Nearby, a historic covered bridge acts as gatekeeper to Harris Bridge Vineyard and its specialty pinot gris and pinot noir vermouths. Enjoy your next glass in the picturesque setting of Cardwell Hill Cellars before heading to Lumos Wine Company where organic wine is poured in a former dude ranch barn.

Linger along the hillside of Monmouth’s Airlie Winery, owned and operated by women, with nine signature varietals to enjoy. Then visit Emerson Vineyards, a multi-generational labor of love, for happy sips and fun conversations with the winemakers.

Your farm-to-table dinner is served at local favorite Frankie’s Restaurant in Albany, a fine dining experience with casual ambiance. For a nightcap and games, treat yourself to Albany’s brewstillery, Deluxe Brewing and Sinister Distilling or end the night at Spiritopia Wine and Spirits Tasting Room for a specialty wine flight or mini cocktail.
