Wine, Beer, Coffee and Spirits
When it comes to excellence in hand-crafted beverages–from wine and beer to coffee–the Pacific Northwest outshines any other location in the U.S. Located in Portland’s backyard, Tualatin Valley benefits from this distinction with its own collection of flavorsome hand-crafted wine, beer, coffee and spirits!
Wineries & Vineyards
Tualatin Valley sits in the northwestern corner of the award-winning Willamette Valley. While the Pinot Noir put the valley—and the state—on the wine map, the sheer diversity of varietals keeps wine lovers coming. Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris are among the dozens of varietals here, along with Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, and the seasonal Rosé, which are available at the more than 35 wineries in Tualatin Valley.
Tualatin Valley is exploding in the Portland craft beer scene, from the ubiquitous McMenamins, which brews several of its beers here, to new local breweries that attract the serious beer connoisseur, as well as the casual beer aficionado. Whether you like your beers hoppy, sour or dark, some of the best breweries in Oregon can be found within mere minutes of each other in Tualatin Valley.
Coffee lovers flock to Oregon. A cup of joe perfectly matches our low fog mornings, crisp and bright winter days, or drizzly evenings. It helps that our locals make outstanding coffee and are eager to share it with visitors. Tualatin Valley boasts a number of coffee shops, each offering its own menu of delicious coffee (and tea) drinks. Plus, premium coffee roasters also call Tualatin Valley home.
It’s been more than 80 years since the end of Prohibition, and Oregon has blossomed into a leader of craft beer, full-bodied wines and well-aged spirits. Oregon’s distilleries–and Tualatin Valley distilleries in particular–are earning well-deserved accolades and are introducing handcrafted spirits to a new generation.
But Wait, There’s More
Tualatin Valley is home to the first American owned-and-operated large-production saké brewery, SakéOne. A visit to this brewery is a treat for the senses. Sample a flight of saké at the tasting room, and tag along for one of its daily public tours of its kura and get a close-up view of how this traditional Japanese beverage is created.
Hard cider is making a big splash in the United States, especially in Oregon, where it has taken on a life of its own. Taste the crisp apple and pear tastes of hard cider at Bull Run Cider, the Tualatin Valley’s only cider producer with a tasting room.
