Explore The Recently-Launched Willamette Valley to Walla Walla Wine Trail

Rachel Signer of Food & Wine Magazine recommends her top spots and events in McMinnville, Oregon:

“Consider timing your trip to Oregon to coincide with the International Pinot Noir Celebration, which takes place at the end of July in the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, the town of McMinnville, about an hour’s drive from Portland. Now in its 30th year, the IPNC is an unparalleled opportunity to taste some of the Valley’s finest red wines, participate in seminars, take winery tours, and enjoy meals from top Northwest chefs. The IPNC offers three ticket options: the full weekend (Friday-Sunday), just the “Salmon Bake” feast on Saturday evening, and the “Passport to Pinot” on Sunday afternoon. Also, consider attending the Bounty of Yamhill County, a culinary and wine fest in Oregon that takes place in August.” – Read the full article here.
