McMinnville, Oregon: the Heart of Oregon Wine Country
A warm welcome awaits you in McMinnville, Oregon. Whether it’s the nostalgic feeling of walking below the majestic maple trees lining the historic downtown’s shopping district, or the satisfying sensation of drinking some of the world’s best pinot noir (grown and fermented at a vineyard just down the road), you won’t forget McMinnville’s genuine friendliness. Dining at an award-winning farm-to-table restaurant, shopping, wine tasting, and lodging experiences as welcoming as the town itself are just a few of the adventures you can tackle here in a weekend or a week. McMinnville is a hospitable city of about 33,000 residents located in the heart of Oregon wine country, not too close — or too far – from the bustle of Oregon’s largest cities: Portland and Salem. Thanks to more than 220 wineries and an overwhelming amount of local farm-to-table and artisan dining experiences, you’ll be wishing for more time here…

The surrounding landscape is second to none and beckons to the cyclist, the motorbike-rider, the photographer, the horse-lover, the keen angler – all who appreciate the great outdoors.
