The Willamette valley in Oregon is known the world over for its Pinot Noir & Pinot Gris wines. It also boasts some of America’s best farm-to-table, new-American restaurants. You’ll find stunning state parks where you can chase waterfalls and capture photos of the wildlife that abounds. It’s an ideal place to visit in summer for water sports, hiking and just enjoying an easy stroll in the great outdoors. Don’t lose sight of the exemplary cheeses and world-class breweries which also dot this landscape. The is THE ideal gourmet tour for cooks, wine lovers and people who appreciate food and its connection to nature. The culinary fabric of any place is the fastest way to get to know and understand its culture and values.


  • Meet and taste with some of the most important winemakers in the valley
  • Walk behind a waterfall in the Silver Falls State Parks
  • Experience a proper coffee tasting with an expert
  • Frolic in a garden and taste the local olive oil
  • Dine at a locavore eatery which earned the best restaurant in Oregon honors
  • Meet one of Oregon’s top female winemakers

Join Girls’ Guide to Paris & Beyond’s founder, Doni Belau, & your own wine coach, Laurie Forster, on a gastronomic romp through Willamette Valley where we’ll have a chance to learn more about wine with – wait for it – not only a wine coach but a stand-up comedian! I’m not sure any other female sommelier in the states can stake such a claim. If you can’t have fun on this trip, you need to check into the fun-hospital.
