In Oregon's lush Willamette Valley

Located in the heart of the agriculturally-rich Willamette Valley, McMinnville is surrounded by hills lined with vineyards. Hazelnut orchards and wheat fields spread across the Willamette Valley while Mt. Hood rises in the distance. We're a small, historic town that's an easy drive from Portland, the coast, and Oregon’s capital, Salem.

Historic buildings line Third Street, our Main Street. Visitors often stop by on their way to the Oregon coast from Portland, or after visiting the Evergreen Air and Space Museum. Surrounded by the small towns of Carlton, Dayton and Amity, McMinnville and the Willamette Valley region is considered by many to be the heart of Oregon wine country.
