Looking for something to do around Corvallis? How about visiting a winery?

  The Willamette Valley has long been known as a fertile and productive growing region. One of the crops that has really taken hold of the region the last 2-3 decades or so is wine grapes. The growth of the wine industry in the area since I moved here in the mid-70's has been amazing, at least to me. My wife and I noticed quite a change just in the 14 years we moved away from Corvallis.

 There are many many wineries within close range of Corvallis, say 35 miles or less, to visit through much of the year. The picture above is one I took while visiting Lumos Wine Company, which is just a few minutes west of Philomath and Corvallis, back in May of this last year.

 Visiting wineries can make for an enjoyable day of exploring or picnicking. Here's a website I found that has a list of wineries close to Corvallis.  Not all wineries are open every day so it's best to look up public hours on their websites before a visit. Have fun!
