I have been a member of their wine club for quite some time and I have never had a bad experience. The staff is warm and welcoming and the vineyard offers a huge wrap around deck where you can relax and enjoy their beautifully cultivated wine. I would highly recommend paying them a visit if you ever find yourself in the Portland-Metro area!

Domaine Serene Winery
Domaine Serene is the complete experience that you won't want to miss out on! Their tasting room is nothing short of stunning, to say the least. They have 13 different tasting rooms in this Willamette Valley mansion that is modeled from their tasting room in Burgundy France. In consequence, they offer both old world and new world formats - something very unique in our region. You can enjoy the original, true French formats from France or the big bold reds that we love and appreciate in the great Pacific Northwest.

Domaine Serene also offers guest rooms and they have spectacular, breathtaking 360-degree views of the valley. If you're looking for the full experience in wine tasting, Domaine Serene is the place to go!

Granville Wine Co.
I fell in love with Granville Wine Co. immediately! They actually harvest a format for a Argyle winery and I discovered them through a couple of local wine shops. They are a smaller operation ran by second-generation winemakers Ayla and Jackson Holstein but you wouldn't know that upon first glance.

I appreciate their wine because it is simply delicious and affordable. The tastings are private and intimate which is nice because they spend time with you and give you a chance to learn about their passion for the wine they produce. Ever so often they host events that I have had the luxury of attending. I have been a member for years and it has been so much fun to watch them grow!

Location: Please call (503) 307-9953
Tasting Room Hours: By Appointment Only
Price Range: $28 - $90

Argyle Winery
If you're in wine country, you simply have to stop by Argyle Winery. They are right on the cusp of Newberg and Dundee so they are easy to find and as a bonus - they offer sparkling wine in a variety of formats! As many of you know, the only place you can officially get champagne from is Champagne France but trust me, this is the next best thing.

They have a big beautiful tasting room and their staff are friendly and social. I was a member there for many years and they always greeted me at the door by first name. They offer first-class service and exceptional wine!

Location: Dundee, OR
Tasting Room Hours: 11:00 - 4:00 pm (By Appointment Only)
Price Range: $20 - $100+

Archery Summit
Archery Summit is more of an upscale vineyard that produces some of the best wine that the Willamette Valley has to offer. They are very unique in the sense that they offer tastings in their wine caves which in itself is a truly remarkable experience.

The staff are all friendly and knowledgeable about the world of wine and the winemaking process. They take great pride in producing their wine in similar conditions as Burgundy, France and it shows in their work. They offer some of the most acclaimed Pinot Noirs that we have seen and we are thankful to have them in our region!

Erath Winery
Erath is where the Earth and Heart meet. They broke soil in the Willamette Valley about four decades ago and it is clear that they have perfected their craft upon first taste of their delectable wine. Something unique about Erath is every now and then, they host "winemaker dinners" served as course meals with expert pairings - they are phenomenal!

Simply put, Erath produces great wine at an affordable price; they were one of the first memberships I signed up for and they have never let me down. The staff all know me by name and they are eager to see me when I stop by!

Location: Formally Dayton, OR but relocated in Portland, OR
Tasting Room Hours: 11:00 - 4:00 pm (By Reservation Only)
Price Range: $20 - $70+

Domaine Serene Wine Lounge
Domaine Serene also has wine lounges in both Lake Oswego and downtown Portland. Let me tell you, from someone who has frequented both locations - these lounges are awesome! The Lake Oswego lounge is expertly located right in the heart of downtown Lake Oswego and they offer an extensive wine list with world-class food options available. This is a great place to visit with anyone for any reason; this location is outfitted to suit any meeting or celebration.

The staff all personable and friendly and the lounge is absolutely gorgeous! They offer vine-to-table dining with a French American menu, what more could you ask for!
