The first winery to plant Pinot Noir grapes in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, Eyrie Vineyards is historic. It’s still a family-run business, so you’ll get a warm welcome in the cozy tasting room.

A Napa Valley standout, this modern winery designed by artist and architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser has a disarmingly quirky style and serves rich Cabernets in its tasting room.
