The Territorial Wine Trail

Discover some of the best Oregon wineries along a 40-mile wine tasting route following the South Willamette Valley’s historical wagon and stagecoach roads. Here's you'll experience some of Oregon’s finest wineries and fabled pinot noirs, arguably some of the best in the world! 

Some of the roads are old wagon routes that connected with Territorial Road, which at one time was part of the historical Applegate Trail--a main  stagecoach route from Oregon to California. Tracing back to 1851, Territorial Highway is one of Oregon’s oldest roads.

Today, Territorial Highway runs along a 40 mile north/south stretch beginning at an intersection with OR 99W in Monroe and after a short zigzag at an intersection with OR 36 in Cheshire, heads south to Elmira and Veneta.  It crosses OR 126 continuing south through Crow and Lorane ending at the Lane-Douglas County line.

Spinning off from this scenic and historical byway are 20 of the South Willamette Valley’s finest wineries, some boutiue and some majestic, as well as quaint restaurants and lodges.  

Enjoy the Territorial Wine Trail as it meanders along the foothills of the Coast Range flaunting roadside blackberries, alpaca ranches, produce stands, strawberry fields, vineyards bursting with fruit and wineries bursting with cheer!
