Starting in Portland Metro
Your wine tour experience will begin at your pick up point. Typically, we try to start the tour between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. as many tasting rooms open around about ten. If you are starting in the Portland area (Downtown) this will give us the requisite travel time to get to the first winery. On a 6 hour tour you can usually visit between 3 to 4 wineries in the northern part Willamette Valley. Your tour time does start at the pickup time.
Spending approximately 30 to 45 minutes per winery should give you enough time to sample the flights of wine and learn more about the winery and wines. If you are touring the facility, we would say at least 1 hour for that stop. If you choose to take advantage of our lunch service, please plan for 1 to 1-1/2 hours at that winery stop.
After you have visited the wineries on your itinerary it is time to get back on the road to your drop off location. Wine country in the afternoon can be a bit busy with everyone headed home so we suggest a solid 45 minutes (depending on ending winery) to return to the Portland area for drop off.
Starting in Wine Country
We realize that not everyone wanting to experience our wine tours lives, or will be staying in, the Portland area. For those guests that are starting their wine tour adventure from wine country we are happy to assist. On a 6 hour tour you will probably be able to add one more winery to your stop or spend a little more time at your selected wineries. Pickup would still be scheduled between 9:30 and 10:00 a.m. depending on your pickup location and first winery visit.
Adding More Time
Many of our guests in the past get recommendations from various tasting room staff to visit other wineries in the area. We are happy to extend your tour to accommodate those requests. When we extend a tour it is based on the hourly rate broken down into 15 minute intervals rounded up. If you decide to take in dinner in one of the many wonderful restaurants we can extend our time for you as well at the hourly rate.
Once we get your reservation request, we go to work custom designing a tour that will take you to some of the best wines and scenery the Willamette Valley has to offer. Our itineraries are all custom designed based on your tasting preferences, pickup location, and time available. We schedule your tours to maximize your winery & vineyard time. Travel time is inevitable on any tour, but when you are in the car, you are in a late model luxury vehicle with a professional chauffeur behind the wheel. Your comfort and safety is our top priority.
When it comes to Oregon wine tours, there are many options available to you. When you book a tour with TourOregonWines.com it is a private tour. You and your guests have the vehicle to yourself. We never put two or more groups together in a vehicle that don't know each other. We don't have a rigid schedule* that must be followed which might rush you out of a winery or vineyard that you have fallen in love with. You set the pace for your day.
Our chauffeurs are professionals. They are trained to provide the highest possible client experience for our guests. We realize that not every one is a wine connoisseur and you have to start somewhere. Many of our chauffeurs are wine lovers and will share their knowledge and experience with your during the tour without any judgement on your level of wine knowledge. Their main objective is to make your experience enjoyable and introduce you to the people who are truly passionate about the wine- the tasting room staff, winemakers, and on occasion, the owners of the wineries!

"We booked 2 wine tours in the Willamette Valley. The first day with one of your competitors, and the second day with you guys.
After 30 minutes with our chauffeur we knew we should have done both days with you. It was a few dollars more, but your vehicle, driver, and experience was so much better. Thank you for a great tour!"
