The Willamette Valley is big—it’s 150 miles long and 60 miles wide—yet its tasting rooms have an intimate, artisanal feel. And, of course, phenomenal Pinot Noir.
Maggie Harrison’s morning tastings include Ibérico ham and five wines she makes–Antica Terra Pinots and Lillian reds. In the afternoon, she pours her own wines, plus others she finds inspiring, to drink with charcuterie, cheese and local chocolate. 979 SW Alder St., Dundee; anticaterra.com.
