Recreation

There are plenty of activities to keep you busy in wine country. Our beautiful setting, shaped by rolling hills, soaring oaks and evergreens and lazy backcountry roads serves as a rich backdrop for recreation. By foot, by wheel, or even by hoof, adventure at Vista Hills awaits.

Touring

Jake Price Stables offers equestrian wine tours through our winery and neighboring vineyards. Stationed in nearby Carlton, Price has a fleet of friendly Tennessee Walking Horses eager to take you tasting through the Dundee Hills by back or carriage. Hourly rates apply.

Grape Escape offers customized wine country tours by knowledgeable staffers who love pinot noir just as much as you do. Voted Oregon Wine Person of the Year by Oregon Wine Press in 2007, Ralph Stinton and company blend wonderful food with your choice of a variety of winery stops.

Entourage Limo of Portland provides luxurious transportation between the many tasting rooms - including our own - of the northern Willamette Valley. Travel and taste in the car of your imagination, whether it be a classic executive limousine, mini-coach or stretch.

Cycling

Bike Gallery is our partner in pedals, with six shops in the Portland area. Together, we orchestrate recreational wine country bike rides throughout the warmer months. Loops range in distance, often starting and finishing at the Treehouse Tasting Room. The next ride is scheduled for July 26.

Bicycling.com is a resource for all things behind the handle bars. Our manager and resident cycling enthusiast Dave Petterson contributes occasionally, focusing on the many beautiful rides available thanks to wine country's many quiet, meandering roads.

Picnicking

Our wraparound deck features chairs and tables that are perfect for a sunny snack or midday meal. Additional seating surrounds the Treehouse and our sloping backyard is perfect for lounging. Take in views of the lush Willamette Valley and the Coast Range beyond.

We share a partnership with Newberg-based Perfect Picnics, which specializes in custom homemade meals to be savored from the stunning heights of wine country. Inside their classic wicker picnic baskets you'll find seasonal ingredients from the Willamette Valley. Perfect Picnics also makes pizza, sandwiches and appetizers to accompany our wine.

Lodging

Yamhill Valley Visitors Association offers info on where to go and what to do in the region. Dozens of Bed and Breakfasts are included, the perfect setting for a weekend stay within a short drive from Vista Hills.

Martha's Vineyard West occupies a century-old home just off of historic 3rd Street in McMinnville. Owned and operated by our very own Martha Karson, the B & B sits quaintly at the base of the Red Hills, an afternoon trip away from countless wineries and views.
