A taste of Oregon
From cool-climate pinot noir to the most decadent donuts you can find anywhere, this is where foodie
dreams come true. Famous for its New World wines, craft beer scene and all manner of sweet treats, there is a lot more to Oregon
than you could ever imagine. Explore all Portland has to offer before heading towards the wine regions, beautiful coastline and mountainous interior for a tasty tour.
Its history only dates back about half a century, but hundreds of vineyards dot the Willamette Valley
, running from Portland to Eugene. Here pinot noir is king, but you’ll also taste excellent chardonnay, pinot Gris and Riesling. Whether you’re interested in biodynamic wines or family-run vineyards, you’ll find an easy route to follow.
The Oregon coastline offers up fine clams, crabs and oysters, and you’ll find them on menus from Cannon Beach to Brookings. But for a closer interaction with your dinner, head to Lincoln City where you can join a crabbing or clamming clinic. Learn how to catch, identify, clean and cook your meal
Oregon’s north coast is a haven for craft beer lovers. Head to the port city of Astoria, and settle in for a pint of Trolley Stop Stout at Wet Dog Café & Brewery
, the town’s oldest beer producer. Buoy Beer Co is one of the newer establishments. From its waterfront warehouse, you can taste freshly brewed Cream Ale or Mandarina Bavaria Single Hop IPA.
Just a short distance from Portland
, you can follow the Farmlandia Farm Loop that takes in vineyards, producers of vegetables and herbs, and even a mill. On Sundays, stroll around the Milwaukie Farmers Market and stock up for a picnic at historic Luscher Farm.
In Portland, Oregon's capital of quirk you can taste it all. Sip on craft brews from Hair of the Dog Brewing Company and more on a Bike and Brew Tour
. Tuck into handmade charcuterie from Olympia Provisions, fried chicken at Reel M Inn and the O Captain, My Captain, covered in vanilla frosting and Cap’n Crunch, at Voodoo Doughnut. For fine dining with a local twist head to Beast or Le Pigeon.
