It’s a little known travel secret that Oregon’s Washington County, located just minutes outside of Portland, is a great place to visit in the winter months. Why not surprise your special valentine with a romantic getaway this winter?
This is home to nearly 30 of Willamette Valley’s wineries, many featuring cozy tasting rooms and romantic views. The varietals produced in this growing wine region include much more than Pinot Noir. Cool-weather varietals, such as Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris (or Pinot Grigio), as well as Chardonnay, grow well in this region. Washington County also has the world’s only American owned-and-operated, premium-grade, large-production saké brewery, SakéOne, which offers saké tastings and free tours daily. Two distilleries and a dozen breweries also provide opportunities to experience more than Pinot Noir.
