Best Oregon Wineries to Visit in Your Tent Camper Rental

With it’s wet weather and short summers, the Willamette Valley is the epicenter of a world-class wines  and famous for some of the country’s best Pinot Noir. Here are the state’s best wineries to visit when you rent a luxury tent camper in Bend, Oregon:

Visit Gran Moraine in Your Tent Camper

California wine juggernaut Kendall-Jackson jumped into the Oregon wine business with both feet, purchasing a wide swath of vineyard land in the rolling hills of the Carlton-Yamhill AVA, building an impressive winery and producing a line of super-premium Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. Visitors can choose from a slate of touring and seated tasting options, starting with a semi-private seated tasting of four estate wines from $20.

Explore Ken Wright Cellars

Ken Wright’s is a name to conjure with among Oregon Pinot Noir lovers, and his long-established winery has never lost its place among the handful of the state’s most sought-after producers. The winery itself is open only two days a year (on Thanksgiving weekend), but the Carlton tasting room is the place to sample the fine Pinots, estimable Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc, and wine from the second label, Tyrus Evan, sourced from the Walla Walla Valley and Washington.

Visit King Estate Vineyards

One of Oregon’s largest producers, King Estate is known both for terrific Pinot Gris—in various styles and at different prices—and its vast organic ranch, located southwest of Eugene, which includes gardens, orchards, a restaurant and wetlands. The basic ($10) flight in the lovely tasting room is likely to include both estate-grown wines and regional wines sourced from as afar away as Washington under the North by Northwest label.

Archery Summit Pinot Heaven

This well-funded winery produces high-end Pinot, Chardonnay and other bottlings at its picture-postcard location in the Dundee Hills. There is a roster of experiences to choose from here, ranging from a $20 flight in the tasting room to Library flights and combination tastings and tours of the underground barrel caves carved into volcanic rock (up to $75).

Adelsheim Vineyard

The Adelsheims were among the first wave of Oregon wine pioneers in the 1970s, and their family winery remains a benchmark for Willamette Valley Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. Visitors can taste a range of small-batch, winery-only bottlings in the tasting room. Call ahead to organize customized private tastings and sign-on for guided tasting luncheons.
