The Willamette Valley is the Heart of Oregon Wine Country. As Oregon's leading wine region, the Valley has two-thirds of the state's wineries and vineyards and is home to more than 200 wineries and tasting rooms. It has been recognized as one fo the premier Pinot Noir producing areas in the world. Anne Amie Vineyards produces Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris, elegant wines that clearly express the unique characteristics of Oregon. Their vineyards are located in the rolling hills of the Yamhill - Carlton District and on the steep hillsides of the Chehalem Mountains, both nestled in Oregon's verdant Willamette Valley.
Complimenting the pinot family is old-vine estate Riesling & Muller Thrugau. The tasting room hosts breathtaking views of vineyards and the Pacific Coast Range. Located in the very center of Oregon Pinot Noir country, Cielo Blu is fortunate to be surrounded by such a wonderful tradition and appreciation in the wine industry. You will enjoy the local wine with dishes that pair nicely with the Oregon Pinot flavor. A traditional Italian pasta and a second wine tasting opportunity is included in your tour.
