Oregon has been growing grapes for decades, but it has only recently begun to get the sort of recognition it so richly deserves. As a result of its slow rise to fame, the wineries and towns in the area are much more low-key than California's well-established Napa Valley. A wine-tasting day trip here is relaxing, without the long lines, high fees, and traffic congestion. There are a couple of ways to organize this easy excursion: Grab your own gourmet picnic in Portland, select your own tour of vineyards, and make the drive yourself. Along the main artery, Highway 99, you can stop at the forward-thinking Chehalem Winery (which has a new tasting room open in Newberg), the premier Argyle Winery, and the sustainable and organic Sokol Blosser Winery. Carlton is home to several up-and-coming wineries whose wares you can taste at the Carlton Winemakers Studio, and you can buy a number of local wines not normally available to the public at The Tasting Room. For a leisurely wine country lunch, head to the town of McMinnville, which has several good restaurants. The Bistro Maison serves authentic French fare in a lovely rustic setting, while the Golden Valley Brewery is a good option for classic American pub food. Alternatively, sign up for a semi-customized package tour (an excellent option for those wanting to leave the driving to someone else). The informative Grape Escape Tours has several offerings catering to different interests. For more information, visit and
