Oregon Wine Country

The Willamette Valley

I really like visiting this area in the autumn. Ah, who am I kidding? I like visiting wine country any time of year. But for photography, it's hard to beat autumn. The people at the wineries are incredibly welcoming; I've yet to be turned down when asking if I can photograph. And many of them are full of suggestions of where in the vineyards the best views can be had or where the grapes are looking best. They're also very happy to talk about their wines. And happy to pour you a tasting as well.
If you're thinking of going, to either photograph or taste, start at the official Willamette Valley Wineries website.
