Marcus was our knowledgeable guide on this informative and entertaining 9 hour tour. We enjoyed short hikes to two waterfalls in Silver Falls State Park and then lunch with our first wine tasting at Coelho Winery. Winter's Hill and Laurel Ridge were the 2nd and 3rd Willamette Valley Wineries we visited to taste their wine selections. Each winery explained the wines we were sampling and allowed us adequate time between each variety. While commuting Marcus supplied us with additional history of the area and interesting details on some of the other local wineries. If you're looking for a tour that combines waterfalls and wineries I would recommend this one.
If you like the wine tasting experience and Pinot Noir specifically, you'll like this tour! Our guide provided a general history of the region, and the Willamette Valley's formation into one of the important wine growing regions in the world. We visited three wineries - a small boutique winery, a mid-scale winery and a large scale one. Each represented a different way of making and marketing wine, and you can really taste the uniqueness in each one.
We had so much fun on our tour!! We went to three amazing wineries, and everyone was very friendly. Because we ended up going in the off season, it ended up just being the three of us, and it was very personal and informative. I would 100 do this again with this company. Our driver was awesome, and it was fun being around her!! Take this tour!!
My girlfriend and I took this tour and had a great time tasting wine at 3 different wineries. Stephanie was a great guide and was very knowledgeable and fun to hang out with for an afternoon. I can't imagine doing this tour with a big tour company since the small group and personal service made the trip!
Our tour of the Willamette Valley and wineries with Stephanie was nothing short of wonderful. She was knowledgeable, fun and did a great job of accommodating to our group's needs and specific things we were interested in seeing and doing. I feel like I got a good feel for the different wineries in the region. I am so glad I took this tour!
Stephanie was a great guide...knowledgeable, personable and just plain awesome. I ended up with a private tour as they did not have other guests that day. Big kudos to the company for not cancelling as most companies would under the circumstances.
