The Willamette Valley is an  internationally recognized wine growing region. It’s cool climate and various soil types allows production of many varietals like Pinot Gris, Reisling, Chardonnay, and especially, most notably, Pinot Noir. Oregon’s vintners produce award winning wines and the Willamette Valley’s vintners are proud recipients of many wine awards.  The Oregon Wine Awards, with a tasting panel composed of master sommeliers, professors of viticulture and Enology, wine journalists and wine sellers, named a number of Willamette Valley vintners among their awardees in 2015.  Some of the winners are located close to Pringle Creek Community, within 6 to 30 miles from our door! In 2015, Left Coast Cellars won Double Gold for their 2013 Pinot Noir and gold for their 2014 Pinot Gris, Willamette Valley Vineyard won Gold for their 2013 Pinto Gris, and Airlie Vineyards won gold for their 2012 Pinot Noir and gold for their 2012 Reisling. These three vineyards are just a few of the many wine producers who live nearby in the Willamette Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area).

If you are an active person, you might enjoy touring Oregon’s wine country from a bicycle.  Oregon Wine Country’s website has all kinds of suggestions for bike trips, touring, as well as information about dining, cheeses, and beer also found throughout the Willamette Valley.

Pringle Creek Community is located in the heart of all of this!  We’re an urban oasis in the midst of Willamette Valley plenty.  Come visit us and experience it all for yourself!
