Willamette Valley Vineyards opens first of several new locations

Willamette Valley Vineyards is opening a Lake Oswego Tasting Room and Restaurant as the first of several locations across the Portland Metro area.

“We are thrilled to join the Lake Oswego community and make it easier for people to enjoy our food and wine pairings as we know not everyone can venture out to wine country as often as they’d like,” Winery Director Christine Clair said.

An effort long in the making, the location officially opened April 28. The restaurant is manned by Chef Cory Rom, where they’ll be serving foods inspired by locally sourced ingredients.

The restaurant will also offer Tasting Experiences alongside the a la carte dishes, highlighting three wine and food pairings with vegetarian and vegan options also available.

The location offers both indoor and outdoor seating and fireplaces, trellis patio, glass wine wall and even a barrel booth with dramatic lighting.
