Quite possibly the best view in the Willamette Valley and a very interesting (think steampunk) tasting room. Unfortunately, that's where the good ends.
We're not really sure they even grow their own grapes but they'll sure tell you about their wine. Wine is not cheap AND they don't refund your tasting fee with the purchase of a $68 bottle of wine.
Go for the view; go somewhere else for a good tasting experience.

Given the wine tasting fees in Oregon ($10-20) it is very disappointing to waste precious vacation time and dollars on subpar wineries. White Rose Estate charges $15 for tasting 3 wines and the wines are average at best and certainly not worthy of the price tag of $50-$60 per bottle they were offering at the winery. The best thing about the winery was the view but you have to leave the windowless attic style tasting room actually enjoy the valley below. Having touring wineries on 3 continents I think Oregon wineries charging fees are short-sighted because it make me less likely to try the variety of wineries in the area. Sadly I probably will miss some amazing wines but spending $60 dollars do tasting at less than four wineries before I even buy a bottle makes me a wary consumer instead of the wine explorer I want to be.

The young woman chemist who poured the wine made our visit exceptional. She should write a book! The setting, near The Wine Country Farm B & B, my new favorite place to visit, is gorgeous.

We visited this winery at the suggested of the server at Vista Hills winery. The reds here were quick good. And the view was great! The server was so nice and explained everything really well.

We belong to the wine club for White Rose because we want to be sure that we can get some of the wines we love. They are often sold out of their best wines because they always have scores of 92+! The owner is obsessed with making high quality pinot noir and that's all he makes. From the vineyard manager, to the sales people to the wine room manager, it is a joy to visit White Rose. The architecture of the winery is amazing and don't miss "the outhouse!"
