“Walnut Ridge has it all"

Walnut Ridge has it all. Beautiful pastoral country views, a cozy tasting room, and wine that delivers on it's promise. It keeps things simple with two flight options, along with a la cart tastings, and a small, but changing food menu.  The food pairings are obviously well thought out to compliment the wine. The tasting room is heaven for the true wine aficionados; but the owners are so down to earth, and happy to offer an introduction to what their wine is all about if you're new to the tasting routine. I recommend buying a bottle of wine, sitting on the patio and drinking in the experience of what a first class wine tasting room should be.

“This place is amazing!!"

This place is amazing!!  When you drive up your taken back by the view and how the tasting room and landscaping is so welcoming. Then you go inside. Beautiful! The owner is very involved and makes sure his customers are taken care of. A must to see/visit and dine time. Next visit, we will indulge in the menu options!

“The patio is one of the best"

Brand new tasting room that is quaint and cheery. The wine is decadent with many options to choose from. The patio is one of the best with sweeping views of wine country. Don't forget to try the best deviled eggs ever with homemade bacon jam!

“Tremendous wines and wonderful hosts”

“Jim and Wendy go out of their way to be involved in your day, from telling you about the wines to ensuring you are satisfied. And you will be! There are no bad wines here, only better ones. Great appetizers but no actual meals. Wonderful tasting room and patio.”

“An Excellent Winery”

Celebrating our 30th Anniversary in Oregon and can't help but stop at wineries off the beaten path. The architecture and inside decor are inviting. We had the honor of having Jim, the owner, share time and his wines with us. The atmosphere, the welcoming hosts and the excellent Pinot Noirs will bring us back the next time we are near the Willamette Valley. Thank you for the enjoyable time.
