Willamette Valley Vineyards, Turner

4.6
#3 of 173 in Wineries in Oregon
Founded in 1983 by Oregon native Jim Bernau with the dream of creating world-class Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley Vineyards has grown from a bold idea into one of the region’s leading wineries, earning the title “One of America’s Great Pinot Noir Producers” from Wine Enthusiast Magazine. All the vineyards, the Estate Vineyard, Tualatin Estate, and Elton vineyard, have been certified sustainable through LIVE (Low Input Viticulture and Enology) and Salmon-Safe programs since 1997. In 2007, Willamette Valley Vineyards became the first winery in the world to use sustainable cork stoppers certified by the Rainforest Alliance and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standards. Willamette Valley Vineyards commitment to sustainable practices in the vineyard and winery is based on the convictions that as stewards of the land they have an obligation to walk as softly as possible, and that winegrapes grown naturally in healthy soils produce superior quality wines. Willamette Valley Vineyards also produces wines under the Griffin Creek and Tualatin Estate labels.

  • The view is the only good thing about this place! They need better OLCC Training! We had a large group of family and they thought one person had too much wine ( the one that likes wine the least, but has a great personality) So instead of cutting that one person off they cut the whole group off. Also, all are other family or friends who were coming to meet us or even anyone who knew us, or would say hi to us would not be aloud to have any wine! Really? Me and my family are all going to cancel are membership. Too many other great wineries out there.
  • We were visiting from Michigan and couldn’t have had a more pleasant experience. Not only was the winery beautiful and the views breathtaking, Samantha W. was so informative, attentive and genuinely caring - she even followed us out to the veranda to give my daughters complimentary trouffles. What an outstanding ambassador for the company. The wine was amazing and their signature burger was beyond delicious. Would give six stars if we could. We’ll be back!
  • We visited yesterday with a group of 8 for a VIP tour and had a fantastic time. The ambassador who showed us around, Jose, was knowledgeable, friendly and took extra time with us to make sure our Polish-speaking friends had time for translation and to ask questions. Please pass our thanks along to Jose! We all had a great experience and will definitely recommend a visit to WVV to friends!
  • Might leave a better review if I could reach anybody. No one to help make a reservation. "That department" is never in when I call. Left voicemail, no call back. I call again "they're at lunch" or "they're not here yet". Must not need customers. Someone should always be available to help a customer don't you think?
  • With so many other great places to visit in the Valley, skip this place. The view is gorgeous, but the service and tasting here lacks the hospitality of many other wineries in the area. We visited early in the day on a slow Monday. There were amble staff, but upon arrival we were completely ignored by the multiple staff members behind the bar. There was no hostess at the hostess station and no signage about self seating. We waited for a few minutes while multiple staff members diverted their eyes from us so as to not have to offer directions. This was not the treatment we received at other tasting rooms that welcomed us and gave us some instruction on choosing a seat or a tasting, etc. I finally got someone’s attention who almost reluctantly gave me instructions about their service being from the bar. We ordered 2 tastings. With each pour the bartender offered no description of the wine or addition info about the vineyards. We have visited innumerable wineries around the world and never been to a place where the employees lack any sort of hospitality or pride in their establishment. That is all part of the experience of an on-site tasting like this and was disappointing.
