What an awesome day! We chose to do a private tour (there was 4 of us) and it was well worth it. Our tour guide Dillon got to know us on the drive to the valley and then customized the 4 wineries we went to based on that. Not only was he informative about Oregon wine country and the Williamette valley but also about Oregon and the pacific northwest in general. We will definitely be back!
Dillon was a great guide for our tour on Saturday. He was extremely knowledgeable and took us to 4 amazing wineries. The entire day ran smoothly and we would definitely recommend this to anyone who is considering Oregon wine country!
My group of 6 had the BEST time on our wine tour with Backcountry through the Willamette Valley. Our tour guide Chevonne was AMAZING! AND, she wasn't just our driver. She has extensive knowledge about the wine industry and wine making process and tailored our tour to our group's preferences. It's very clear that Backcountry is concerned with making each tour unique to their customer's preferences and ensuring everything runs smoothly throughout the day. Chevonne was a jack-of-all-trades; she not only educated us through our tour, but took photos of our group and when she wasn't satisfied with the customer service at one of the wineries, she made sure she took care of our group. I will be sure to recommend Backcountry to any friends or family travelling to Portland and hope to be back myself with my husband for an anniversary trip!
Myself, and my two friends, were picked up by Jack on a rainy Monday morning and we had a blast on this tour. The van they picked us up in was comfortable and very nice. Going on a Monday was perfect because we were usually the only people in the wineries, which meant we got to see everything. Each winery was beautiful and had delicious wine. The views from each vineyard alone would have been worth it. You can tell Backcountry puts a lot of thought into each winery they take people to, and they only chose the creme of the crop. While the tasting fees are a little on the pricey side, the wines we were able to taste were well worth it. Each vineyard was spectacular, and enjoying a glass of wine with an amazing view was heaven. Also, I thought it was great that they had a shipping option at the end! As a traveler, I was worried I would have to navigate this on my own, or at the airport, but at the end of the trip we were able to stop at the post office and ship all our wine home! Very convenient. Lunch and water is provided and we were even able to eat at one of the wineries. It was so nice and relaxing. This tour is really great for anyone! Jack is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and was a fantastic tour guide. He took pictures for me and my friends at each vineyard. Really went above and beyond to get a great angle. I would recommend this to anyone and would definitely use Backcountry again.
We had a wonderful day with Backcountry Wine Tours! We were visiting Willamette Valley for the first time and wanted to go with local experts to understand the local landscape, vineyard history, and current producers. Our guide picked us up in a great van with another couple on board for our day out in the Valley. The day was perfect and we visited some great tasting rooms. The scenery in Willamette is just so gorgeous and the wines so good and our guide was fun, knowledgeable and entertaining. It was a great day and the only way to really get to know the Valley and the wines. I would highly recommend a day with Backcountry Wine Tours!
