Yamhill County is Oregon’s wine heartland, home to the pinot noirs that have won worldwide acclaim. It’s a territory of grape-clad, rolling hills and unpretentious towns, single-stoplight places where tractors and logging trucks still roll down Main Street. This ride visits several of those towns on a loop linking the Chehalem Creek and Yamhill River valleys. Along the way, it passes a few of Oregon’s elite wineries, plus a Trappist abbey set in the forest. Though Yamhill is a very scenic place to ride, some roads are busy and few have a shoulder. Most of this ride sticks to back roads, but even these require a certain amount of vigilance, especially if you choose to sample the local goods. No doubt some of the drivers have too.
