McMinnville and Dundee

Just an hour drive south of Portland leads you to an impossibly charming town that also boasts big city perks and amenities. Third Street is so picturesque, it could easily double as a movie backdrop. No wonder so many savvy Portlanders escape to McMinnville for a relaxing day or weekend!

Dubbed as the “Heart of Oregon Wine Country,” McMinnville’s biggest draw is its proximity to world-class wineries specializing in Pinot Noirs. So pack your day-trip bags, and gear up for a delicious getaway.
