Oregon AVAs

The United States is divided into American Viticultural Areas (AVA’s), which are designated wine grape-growing regions that are distinguishable by geographic features (i.e. soil types, general location). The Willamette Valley itself is an AVA, but within the Willamette Valley there are numerous sub-AVA’s. Many tourists often spend the entire day within one AVA since the wineries are all located near one another. Each AVA has a website to promote the numerous wineries within each area- these websites serve as excellent resources in discovering many hidden gems throughout the valley.

Chehalem Mountains/Ribbon Ridge AVA
Dundee Hills AVA
Eola-Amity Hills AVA
Laurelwood AVA
Lower Long Tom AVA
McMinnville AVA
Tualatin Hills AVA
Yamhill-Carlton AVA
