Hi! I’m Jack Cranley, owner, operator, and your humble host at Backcountry Wine Tours. Along with my 3 amazing expert guides – Jeffrey Allen, Dillon Gallagher, and Julie Meyers – we provide the most exclusive, personalized, and downright fun wine tour in the Willamette Valley. We have a deep passion for wine, and we are lucky to live and work in what we consider to be one of the most exciting wine regions in the world.
You’re in good hands when you step into one of our tour vans. Safety and comfort are of the utmost importance. Our fleet is comprised of two 2013 Toyota Sienna Vans with very comfortable interiors that are cleaned and detailed before every tour, all the creature comforts, and plenty of leg room for up to 6 adults. For groups larger than 6, you will ride in a late model Ford E350 11 passenger van which is equipped with Captain’s Chairs instead of bench seats. It’s a pretty sweet ride!
The “Backcountry Philosophy” is simple: Get off the beaten path and explore the hidden gems and secrets of the region. Anyone can throw you in a tour bus and shuttle you from tasting room to tasting room. Backcountry Wine Tours will guide you in style and comfort to places you may have never found on your own.
Jeffrey, Dillon, Julie and I have spent countless long days exploring the backroads of the Willamette Valley. Let us share with you what we have learned, and show you around the amazing Oregon Wine Country!
