Winery Map of the Day - Oregon's Pinot Noir Leaders

In addition to elegance and complexity, Pinot Noir is valued for its ability to convey the nuances of its growing conditions. Oregon's Willamette Valley, one of the best places in the world for growing Pinot Noir, provides an abundance of micro-climates for producing a wide range of Pinot Noir styles. From the supple and spicy, blue and black fruit-driven wines of Yamhill-Carlton to the bright, red fruit-dominated Pinot Noirs from the Dundee Hills, a tour through Oregon's Willamette Valley exposes wine tourists to some of the world's most enchanting Pinot Noir.

Although we try to limit the number of wineries displayed on each "Winery Map of the Day" to less than twenty, today's map - which focuses on Oregon wineries producing the highest rated Willamette Valley Pinot Noir - includes sixty Oregon wineries! We could have limited the map to just 5 star wineries, vice 4.5 star wineries, but doing so would have omitted far too many fantastic Oregon Pinot Noir producers. For those who are interested in the overall tasting experience, please see Rob Boss' informative, and sometimes even poetic, Oregon winery reviews.
