Explore Willamette Valley

The Willamette Valley is known for its fantastic Pinot noir and blanc, its fertile farmland and its state universities—University of Oregon in Eugene and Oregon State University in Corvallis. The rolling hills and wet side of the Cascades bring Oregon much of her bounty from the earth. Pass through this region, and you’ll likely find yourself taking back a few glasses of wine over a delicious meal made with ingredients from the farm next door. Plan your Oregon getaway in these parts and prepare yourself for lush scenery, hints of a ‘Ducks vs. Beavers’ rivalry, good food, even better wine, and opportunities for hiking, biking and kayaking.
