The Willamette Valley, Oregon's largest AVA (American Vitaculture Area), stretches 150 miles from Portland, Oregon. to south of Salem and consists of six sub-appellations. 200 wineries and 10,000 acres of quality Oregon wine grapes. The rich, diverse soil and relatively mild climate make for ideal grape growing conditions. All this combined with warm summer days and cool nights allows the wine grapes to develop their flavor and complexity.
The inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild presents equally diverse options for Oregon Wine Country Lodging. Over 20 unique bed and breakfasts in the Willamette Valley are scattered throughout the region and are located near many of the events scheduled this summer/fall at the wineries.
Visit the Willamette Valley in Oregon and experience fine Oregon Wine Country Lodging at the member inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild. Salut!
