From Dundee Hills, McMinnville, and Eola-Amity Hills in the world famous Willamette Valley, to Columbia Valley in the northeast, to Umpqua and Rogue Valleys in the southern reaches of the state, Oregon is a mosaic of natural beauty and world-class wines.

“Oregon Wine Country is vast and diverse,” says Carrie Wynkoop, founder and CEO of Cellar 503, an Oregon-only wine club centered on the discovery of wineries and grape growers throughout Oregon’s many winemaking regions. “Most folks associate Oregon with pinot noir grown in the Willamette Valley, but there is wine produced literally in every part of the state.”

Planning a trip? The state’s 18 AVAs feature many different meso-climates, allowing an A-Z of wine grapes grown. Each region is dotted with boutique and luxury hotels, charming B&Bs and cozy Wine Country inns, on-site winery guest houses, and offbeat lodging options. We have compiled a list of ten of our favorites to help you plan the perfect Oregon Wine Country getaway.
