The northern Willamette Valley might feel a light-year or two away right now, but it is, in fact, just 20 miles west of Portland. The Tualatin Valley — the northern entry point to the Willamette and picturesque seat of Washington County — is an agriculturally rich region, scenically formed by the serpentining Tualatin River and the craggy Oregon Coast Range.

The valley also hosts more than 30 estate wineries and tasting rooms, catered for tourists to conveniently dip in (with itineraries available here) from the Rose City.

Since tourism is on a hold for the moment, and we’re all making the best of being at home, you can now take a virtual trip to the Tualatin Valley. With this Sip-curated Survival Six-Pack of white wines, you will get a taste of northern Willamette vino from the safety and comfort of your home.

Raptor Ridge Winery 2017 Auxerrois, Zenith Vineyard

Pronounced aus-ser-whah, this Alsatian grape variety has found an Oregonian home at Zenith Vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. The grape is a sibling to Chardonnay so finding its place in the Tualatin Valley probably felt a little like home. Somewhere between Pinot Blanc and Chard, Raptor Ridge‘s version is fresh and full, with a rich texture that is spritzed with citrus and spice for a crisp finish.

Montinore Estate NV Borealis, Montinore Estate

Cool-climate white grape varietals, assemble! This biodynamic, organic winery blends estate-grown Müller-Thurgau (35%), Gewürztraminer (29%), Riesling (24%) and Pinot Gris (12%) together, from various vintages, to tie in the unique traits of each grape. Honeydew (Müller), orange blossom (Gewürz), tropical fruits (Riesling) and pear (Pinot Gris) are just a few of the plush, aromatic fruits that jump out of the glass, backed by a refreshing lick of acid.

Plum Hill Vineyards 2018 Schönberger, Estate

The German hybrid variety (a cross of  Muscat and Pinot Noir) doesn’t have much play outside of Deutschland — that is other than in the Pacific Northwest. This Gaston-based winery is the only commercial winery to have it planted in Oregon and Washington, and does so on its estate built upon a historical dairy farm. The wine itself is full and fruity, yet soft, mineral-driven and could be confused for Chablis.

Plum Hill is offering phone-order pick-up only at this time.

Apolloni Vineyards 2018 Pinot Grigio, Estate

First generation Italian-American Alfredo Apolloni set up his shop in Forest Grove in 1999, transferring his multigenerational Italian winemaking roots to Oregon’s northern Willamette Valley. In addition to Pinot Noir — as a now-Oregonian is wont to do — Apolloni specializes in Italian varieties, like Pinot Grigio, that also happen to grow quite well over here. The 2018 Grigio brings all the lush, sprightly pear you were hoping for, with some peach (and peach fuzz) and limestone on the side.

Freja Cellars 2018 Albariño, Chehalem Mountains

Named for the Norse patron of crops and birth, love and fertility goddess Freja, Freja Cellars is a nod to Pinot Noir’s origins in the Burgundy region of France and to the Scandinavian nomads who first settled in the Northwest. Throwing that to the wind, Freja also makes a solid Albariño, the exuberant and nutty Spanish white grape variety. Their third bottling of the wine, tropical fruits meld with citrus, finishing bright and fresh.

Cooper Mountain Vineyards 2018 Old Vines Chardonnay, Estate

Planted in the late 1970s on the southwestern-facing slopes that once shaped a volcano, these Chardonnay vines were not only some of the first in the region, but the vines (and the winery) were early adopters to organic and biodynamic farming practices. Since the early ’90s, Cooper Mountain has maintained these practices, resulting in purity and unadulterated varietal expression in Willamette Valley Chardonnay. Caramelized hazelnut, golden apple and fresh peach balance with lemon zest, mineral and uplifting acidity.
