Oregon’s famed Willamette Valley – a wonderfully bucolic spot an hour’s easy drive from Portland – may just be the anti-Napa Valley. You won’t find any medieval castles or Persian Palaces here, though you WILL find no shortage of ridiculously good wine, an incredibly warm people and a far slower pace of life than that in bustling California. So slow down (literally, the police ticket a lot around these parts), take your time and prepare to be awed by the natural beauty of your surroundings, the superb quality of the wines and the kindness of the people serving them. It’s not exactly wine country in slow motion, but it’s not far off.

And given the hectic pace of our lives these days, this can be a very good thing.
