Exceeded expectations - and the expectations were high 🙂 Outstanding job! Backcountry Wine Tours deliveed a wonderful experience for our trip. They carefully listened to our requests on the in-take form and then used that information to put together a FABULOUS day for us. We loved the wineries that THEY selected. The van was so roomy and spacious and clean. Our driver, Michael, was awesome. Highly, highly recommend this company!!!! Highly, highly recommend Willamette Valley!

Simply the best! Our driver was Michael and he was amazing! The wineries he chose were awesome and the experience was forgettable. We spoke to one wine maker, who provided our tasting experience, and we knew that was a treat and greatly appreciated that. Oregon wines are delicious and amazing! Lunch was provided and we were able to eat in the car between wineries (at our own pace). My hubby and I have done so many wine tours in California and Arizona and this one by far is at the top! I love that gratuity was automatically included, takes some stress away from the day. Also, Michael took beautiful scenic pictures, and sent them to us. Don’t hesitate, book your tour, you will not regret it. Thank you Backcountry Wine Tours and a huge thank you to Michael!

I highly recommend Backcountry Wine to anyone coming to the area looking for a great way to enjoy the wine country.

Great day with Backcountry! Dillon was very informative and timely! We really enjoyed the tours he set up for us. The wines were delicious and the views were fantastic. We met very kind people at each stop and would not have had such a coordinated day without the help of Backcountry. They made our day enjoyable and stress free.

Exceptional 2 day tour in Willamette Valley! We wanted to visit some of the more obscure wineries and were delighted with both Michael (1st day) & Aaron (2nd day) and the choices they made. We went 6 for 6 buying wine from each place we visited over the 2 days. If you're looking for a great experience (and who isn't?) look no further than Backcountry Wine Tours.

Outstanding Tour Guide Amy was outstanding! We were 3 couples visiting the Willamette Valley for the first time and interested in touring the wine country. Amy arranged everything at the vineyards she and we both selected (go with her recommended smaller vineyards), picked us up each morning from our B&B, did all the driving in her roomy van and dropped us off at the end of the day. Wonderful! Amy has a great personality, knows the valley, winemakers, and couldn’t have been a better guide! Bravo Amy (and Reba)!!

A Wow Experience Our day with Michael was sublime. The wineries that Jack selected for our group were perfect and the start at Gran Moraine set the tone for the day. While we loved every stop, this particular one was a chosen favorite of our group. Michael was friendly, knowledgeable and a tremendous host and driver. I would highly recommend Backcountry.

Amazing Tour and Fantastic Wines

Backcountry Wine Tours is simply put AMAZING.
Jack and Dillon are incredible wine aficionados. Dillon was our guide for the day, and we couldn’t have asked for a better day. We’ve been talking about our tour since. Recapping the wonderful experience. We stopped at three vineyards, and each visit gave us a special wine tasting experience. The day was made perfect by the last visit to Proteus/Aerea.
Ian is a true craftsman and lovely person.
Thank you Backcountry for making our visit to Portland wine country as good as it gets.

Incredible Day, Even With the Weather!

We can not rave enough about how incredible our day was with Backcountry Wine Tours! They found us the best smaller wineries with amazing wines to try, and knowledgeable staff and/or wine makers! It was such a delight. The weather did not cooperate all day but none of us cared. The thought, care and planning that clearly went into our day was over the top impressive. The customer service and communication was outstanding. We need way more than five stars for Backcountry! You are truly missing out if you do not use them. Even as a “local “- it is totally worth it! A huge thank you for making this a great memory for our family.

Bigger isn’t always better!

We’ve done a couple of different tours in other states and we truly thought this was one of the best. Drew was our driver and had a lot of knowledge about the area and winery history. We were able to make it to 4 wineries, all of which were “off the beaten path” that we wouldn’t have picked on our own. They all had a good variety of styles between them, friendly staff that were knowledgeable, and lovely settings. The van was comfortable and the rides between the wineries were beautiful!
If you want a tour that isn’t all the “big names” and were you have a chance to get to know the winemakers & staff, this is the tour for you!
