Watch a video that captures an outdoor Pinot Noir tasting dinner in Oregon wine country. See what visiting Oregon wine country is really like. Anyone who lives on the West coast knows the I-5 Freeway. Most of us just call it “The Five” and use it as a solemn-and-straight shot between major cities. However, if you veer off somewhere in Oregon you’ll realize there’s a lot more to the countryside than meets the freeway.
After cruising down “The Five,” you can…Drive through a curving road that swoops through hazelnut orchards and hop farms. Oregonians love IPA.
Cross the Willamette river on an electric ferry.
