The (Wine) Trail of Truth

The ancient Latin phrase in vino veritas, “in wine there is truth,” is particularly relevant for the wine experience in Oregon. Do the North Willamette Wine Trail, take in stellar views of Mt. Hood while sipping internationally recognized, award-winning wines, and discover why this is truly one of the best experiences Oregon offers.

It all awaits on the way to the coast or as a destination in itself. The North Willamette Wine Trail Weekend (April 13-14)  is but one high point in a place that epitomizes the good life in Oregon, and it reaches the height of popularity in spring and summer. It’s all laid out on the Vineyard and Valley Scenic Tour Route, a 60-mile drive along winding country roads through the lush Tualatin Valley from Sherwood to Swiss-settled Helvetia.

This Oregon Scenic Byway showcases Washington County’s embarrassment of agricultural riches, from vineyards, wineries, farms with juicy berries you can pick right off the vine and stands teeming with seasonal fresh vegetables, to historic sites, wildlife refuges and sweeping vistas of the Cascade Range.

These are the truths of Oregon wine country, a year-round destination in which the state’s glories become evident with every sip.
