About Us

The North Willamette Vintners is a collection of wineries, vineyards, and wine tourism partners that shape the northern gateway to Oregon’s wine country. Brought together by a deep passion for crafting the finest wines from the most fertile environment, our members are a diverse and dedicated group. 

From small wineries that house their wine production facilities in rustic barns, to larger vineyards with modern state-of-the-art facilities, we work together to support and advance our abundant and still-emerging wine region.  And, just minutes from Portland at the northern edge of the Willamette Valley, we also provide visitors with an outstanding wine destination experience.

Originally founded as the Wineries of Washington County, we have grown from what began as a small cooperative marketing group to a full service nonprofit professional association in 2008. We welcome partners that are located or conduct business in the northern Willamette Valley. 

This website has been produced in partnership with a grant from the Washington County Visitors Association. NWV and our members are proud to partner with the WCVA to build and promote the wine industry and tourism opportunities in Oregon's Washington County.
