4 Places to Savor Oregon Wine on the Mid-Willamette Valley Food Trail

One of the many things you can enjoy on the Mid-Willamette Valley Food Trail is Oregon wine.

We have nine wineries on the Food Trail and they're all excellent places to settle in for a relaxing afternoon with a glass of Oregon's famous Pinot Noir. You can also get off the beaten path a bit at any of the Food Trail wineries, and try Chardonnays, Pinot Gris, Rosés, dessert wines, and more, too.

With nine stops on the list, it might be hard to know where to start. We've got four suggestions here that offer excellent wines and amazing views, as well as a chance to see a bit of the stunning scenery along our back roads. Remember to bring your masks as you visit - and your designated drivers!

Bluebird Hill Cellars is a beautiful winery with gorgeous rolling views across the hills and tons of bluebirds around their vineyard. Their wines - award-winning Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and more - are small-lot and handcrafted, mainly from estate fruit. They're open Saturdays and Sundays, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., weather permitting, and reservations are encouraged. Call (541) 424-2478 to make a reservation.

At Lumos you can relax on their beautiful tasting room deck, drinking in amazing views of Marys Peak with your wine.
