Home to thousands of acres of grapes and a bevy of craft wine makers, the Yamhill Valley offers visitors a chance to explore with their senses. As the center of the Yamhill Valley, McMinnville is the perfect place to start your exploration of a region defined by a rich agricultural heritage and an independent spirit—two qualities that have created a revolution in the way we think about enjoying gastronomic pleasures.
So take your time and explore wine country. Hop in the car and taste your way through the Yamhill Valley. Spend a week sipping through the McMinnville AVA and then move on to Yamhill Carlton District next. Or if you’d rather not drive, cross vineyards on horseback or relax on the trolley. But don’t be afraid to drop some roots and stay awhile—there’s plenty to experience in the Yamhill Valley.
