Wayne was a great host! Even though we requested a tour at the last minute, on a HOLIDAY, Wayne was extremely friendly, professional, and got us everything we wanted from a wine tour. He really took the time to learn our party’s tastes, and recommended a custom itinerary of top-notch wineries that featured wines we wanted to taste. Wayne was punctual, respectful, and edu-taining for the entire day. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for an amazing day in Willamette Valley. Also, for those wondering, Wayne’s ride was clean, comfy, and well-stocked with water – perfect for those hot summer days.

Oh My Gosh.. what a great review. Did Wayne give you a Review Template to use? 😀 He works hard creating these moments for our guests, and our team works hard to support him from helping with lunches, cleaning vehicles and also giving tours . It's always nice to hear our efforts are appreciated. I'll share this with Wayne, boost his ego just a little bit more.

Absolutely outstanding! Wayne Oppenheimer, wine specialist & tour guide, led our small group on a wonderful day-long tour & tasting of Willamette Valley. He is FUN, knowledgeable (about Portland wines & the beautiful surroundings), and led us thru 3 boutique vineyards & additional olive oil tastings. Everyone had a blast with lots of laughter & many shared stories. We will always remember the beautiful vistas (hilltop at Fairsing Winery), the stockboard lunch, our new friendships & those tremendous Pinot Noirs! Unforgettable!

Wow, that review makes ME want to go on one of his tours, hahaha. A great time in wine country isn't solely up to the guide though, the guests have to be fun and adventurous too. Sounds like you all were. Thank you for the review and enjoy the rest of your summer.

Teri, our guide was energetic and knowledgeable about the area. The van was comfortable. The selection of three wineries was great and each offered a different perspective on winemaking in the area. Although we paid for tasting of 5-6 wines at each, fewer wines and the addition of a fourth winery might have added value. Buying a bottle at each adds value. The picnic lunch was tasty but we thought sparse for the price of the trip.

Willamette Valley is beautiful. The drive from Portland out to the valley gave us time to learn more about the area and take in the sights. Wayne was the best tour guide, giving us the perfect mix of information about different grapes and wine, with an extra pour of great laughs. The lunch on the tour was delicious and paired perfectly with the wine tastings. I would highly recommend Wayne and his team for your Oregon tours. I hope to visit again and go on another tour!

My wife and I really wanted to visit the wineries while we were in Oregon, however, we were staying in Portland with our 11 year old son and did not want to drive. We are so grateful for this business run by husband and wife, Wayne and Camille. They were so accommodating and told us they would love to have our son on the wine tour. We were the only couple with our child on the tour. There was another local couple from Portland but they elected to leave the kids at home and three other younger ladies. Everyone was pleasant and we all had a great time. What really stood out was that I felt, Wayne, co-owner of the tour, made a big effort to include our son in the tour so he was very interactive and included him in the open conversations and historical lesson and was even cognizant about the food for lunch. He was so great that our son gave us the okay to add another wine tour for our next vacation. The wineries that they chose to visit were all breathtaking. I belong to a wine club in Napa and one in Paso Robles. I was blown away by the PInots at Root Winery, one of the 3 wineries we visited that day and they have become my 3rd club.

Our trip to the three wineries was an excellent opportunity to sample some great Oregon wines. Our guide Teri was the best. She provided some very interesting history about the area and the wine industry. The three wineries we visited provided a wonderful tasting experience. We will definitely tour again on our next trip to Oregon.

We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was Jessie, and she chose 3 excellent wineries. She was very knowledgeable, and explained a lot about the history of the wineries in the Willamette Valley. It was a very hot day, but she kept us comfortable, providing cold water and always having the van cooled off before we got in. She also provided a really nice lunch. I highly recommend this tour.

Great tour! Nice mix of wines and wineries. Lunch was a mix of Trader Joe’s cheese and meats and was exactly what we wanted to eat with wine. Important to note that fees for tastings ranged from $30-35. Tour guide Kevin was great and adapted his tour to our wine experience level.

Last Sunday was my third wine tour with Wayne. I’ve got two more scheduled this year and every time is another adventure. Every winery I visit on my own knows Wayne and has great things to say about him. He is seriously entertaining. Our luncheon spot fell through this time and Wayne surprised all 13 of us with amazing warm sandwich plates that were out of this world. He paid for them and did not expect reimbursement, but we absolutely paid him back plus a handsome tip for showing us all a great time. We love Wayne!

Highly recommend this tour! We were picked up by Teri in Portland and once the doors closed on the van she started the tour. She gave us a wealth of information wherever we were at (history of everything in sight). Once we arrived in the Williamette wine country the education continued along with backup of her information from those at the wineries. We started at Hyland Estates then to Zerba Cellars. We then went to Utopia where we had lunch and had the honor of spending our time with the owner/winemaker Daniel Warnshuis (just us). We ended the day at Domaine Divio. We were then taken back to our hotel where we carefully carried in a case of the wonderful nector of the day and 2 wineclub memberships so we could be reminded every few months of our wonderful time and smile!
We also returned home with some Hazelnuts (let Teri tell you about that)!! On a side note, if possible travel via Alaska air. A case of wine is complimentary to fly home with!
