Regional wine books generally focus either on the wine or on the wineries/tasting rooms. This book is firmly in the latter category. Divided by region, the layout is based on two (facing) page spreads. Each region is introduced with a description on the left page and a map and other practical info on the right. Following is a two page layout for each winery or tasting room, with a narrative on the left and a map and other info on the right. The narrative varies a bit from winery to winery. It could focus on history, the owner(s), the wine maker, the wine making philosophy, or something else.

What you won't learn much about is the wine. While some of each winery's offerings are listed, and there are sometimes vague endorsements of the wine, there is no critical assessment of the wine.

If you are going to be in an area of Oregon and wonder where to taste wine, this book will give you the options. But if you want to select stops likely to have wine that appeals to you, you'll need resources beyond this book.

I have enjoyed the other wine trail books in the series so I bought this one ahead of a trip to Oregon wine country. I was pretty disappointed. Unlike the other books in the series, this one tries to cover the entire state. As such, it's big and sprawling. I think the author should have stuck to the formula of the other books and focused on just one region per book. While breaking the regions into specific "trails" (that metaphor is getting tired, in my opinion) makes some sense, I found the book hard to use because of it. In addition, there are some pretty glaring omissions. The author only lists wineries with regular tasting hours. I'd like to at least know about the others, they will often open up to tasting with just a phone call. But in some cases, even ones with regular hours were omitted. One in particular that stands out is Raptor Ridge Winery. When Parker rates a winery's wines at 90 pts or better, they have arrived. Not according to Roberts, though. I suspect RR didn't fit into the author's trail structure so he omitted them. The upshot of all this is I hardly used WToO for planning my trip.

I would recommend a different book for people planning a trip to the Willamette Valley wine country - Oregon Wine Country by Moore & Welsch. The information in it is much more accessible and I used it a lot for my trip. Of course, the internet is best resource for planning a trip like this. And, I used Google Maps extensively as well.

I do like the winery profile structure that Roberts uses in the Wine Trail series and his listing wineries by various attributes like view, gift shop and picnic opportunities is very helpful.

Wine Trails of Oregon, written by Steve Roberts, is the perfect guide to exploring the fantastic wines that can be found today in Oregon.

The late David Lett launched a wine revolution in Oregon when he launched the Eyrie Vineyards. "Papa Pinot" grew the first pinot noir in the Willamette valley. Eyrie is now led by David's son Jason. Today Oregon pinots rival their European cousins in Burgundy. One of my personal favorites is Cali's Cuvée Pinot Noir produced by Left Coast Cellars near Salem. This affordable wine won a Critics Gold award in 2007 and will appeal to drinkers of ANY political persuasion.

I was delighted to learn about an amazing establishment called Brandy Peak that distills fine brandies in Brookings, OR on the coast.

Roberts does not attempt to judge the quality of wineries and their offerings. Instead he lays out the relevant facts that will enable a wine lover to make a more enjoyable tour of Oregon Wine country. I found the book invaluable on my recent tour of Oregon.
