From the moment you meet Fred Gunton, you know you are in for a special day. Fred will pick you up in a nice van and will bring you to many "hidden gem" wineries throughout the Willamette. Wineries that you might not have known about had your not met him. His knowledge and expertise of the geology and morphology of the valley, as well as the wines, gives you a sense that he's been doing this for a very long time ( he has) and really loves what he does. He is a class act, fun and so knowledgeable, and one who will provide for you a special day. You will not feel rushed as you move from winery to winery and the addition of some great cheeses and other goodies will compliment the tastings. Fred has a special relationship with many of the owners due to his expertise and this relationship allows you to enjoy private conversations with them and get an inside look at the way wine is produced in the Willamette Valley. Fred provides quality transportation, and great conversation. When you are done for the day, you feel like you've gotten a lesson in wine production in addition to tasting some of the very finest Pinot Noirs in the valley. I highly recommend this as a must do experience when visiting this part of Oregon. Be aware the this tour will take nearly five hours as there is no rush. You will get your monies worth in time alone!
