What you'll do

Saddle up Pinot-neers! This adventure is a perfect blend of Wine History, Oregon History, and Oregon Wine History! Starting in Portland we follow the old wagon trail along the Willamette River to Oregon City, the First City of the West and End of the Oregon Trail, for a glimpse of mighty Willamette Falls, second largest in the USA! Following old Highway 99, we aim for utopia, the Aurora Colony & Mission district, for our first tasting and some antique hunting! Next, we cut through colorful Willamette Valley farms past the Champoeg Heritage Area and push on to Parrett Mountain Cellars' for more vino in a log cabin and fir forest! Finally, we climb to Beckham Estates, where viticulture and ceramics combine in the ancient oenological method of aging wine in huge handmade amphorae--a hot new "retro-trend"! We return to Portland, heads swimming and dripping with tales of history, nature, and culture that I will share--and customize to your interests--throughout the tour! Beautiful all four seasons, it doesn't get more "Oregon" than this!

This tour is awesome any day, season or weather! Have a request or question? I'm flexible and helpful! Kindly, Adam

Meet your host, Adam

  • Identity verified
I'm Adam "Thorn" Smith, lifelong Oregon resident and expert world adventurer! After three decades as teacher, travel writer, and tour guide--in 50 countries on 5 continents--I'm sharing my best secret, my home, Oregon. But, you'll want local know-how, and no one can show you Oregon like I do.

Above all, I value experiences. I love HISTORY, NATURE, and CULTURE, and I'm loaded with local facts, figures, fables and fabulous trivia that most Oregonians don't know! I have extensive experience teaching regional and global history, I continually research, and am convinced that you'll agree, Oregon is an incredible unknown treasure!
