A Guide To The Mt. Hood Territory Wine Trail

Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory is quickly becoming known as an amazing destination for wine weekends. Natalie Harms of it's not Hou it's me recently experienced this firsthand. Her adventure started in Lake Oswego, which is just a short 20-minute drive from Portland. Lake Oswego offers amazing boutique shops and restaurants.

"If you’re looking for a remote getaway in a small, adorable town plucked from a Hallmark movie, then the Lakeshore Inn on Lake Oswego is your best bet," said Natalie.

There are 16 wineries on the Mt. Hood Territory Wine Trail and with Lake Oswego as her central location, Natalie was able to easily visit four wineries in the neighboring town of West Linn. West Linn is home to some of Mt. Hood Territory's newest wineries and also some historic favorites.

Here are some highlights about the wineries she visited, but make sure to read about her full visit and experiences at each.

Campbell Lane Winery might be one of West Linn’s newest wineries, but it is also home to some of the oldest Pinot gris vines in the state of Oregon. Planted in the 1980’s, the vineyard - at that time - had the largest Pinot gris planting in the U.S. at 2.65 acres. They now have 21 acres and their tasting room features great views of Mt. Hood. Located down the road is Pete’s Mountain Vineyard & Winery which also offers amazing views and great wine. Their wine tasting patio overlooks the estate’s vineyard with Mt. Hood and the Willamette River in the distance. Tumwater Vineyard is surrounded by vineyards, and a stocked trout pond is the central focus point on the grounds. The Barrel House Tasting Room is modeled after an authentic old barn with timber framed mortise and tenon joints. Oswego Hills Vineyard and Winery's history of the farm dates back to the 1850’s. During the 1940's, the farm was a world-class equestrian center that even hosted Roy Roger’s horses Trigger and Buttercup when they were on trips to the Northwest. Additionally, the tasting room features old photos that celebrate the history of the farm.

To make it easy and safe for getting around the wineries, Natalie toured with Sea to Summit. They offer great options to visit the wineries and get you back safely to your hotel.
