Wayne was absolutely fabulous. Super fun and accommodating to my friends and I. He picked us up promptly at our hotel at 9am and provided great information about the Willamette Valley and the city of Portland. He selected great vineyards for us to tour and made and awesome charcuterie board for our group!! Awesome experience and I recommend any group looking for a great day in the Willamette Valley definitely book with Wayne.... He's awesome.

What can we say? Wayne & Camille run a FABULOUS tour. Starting with a pickup at our home, to the coffee stop at Red Berry Barn (fab donuts and pies, besides coffee) to 3-4 wineries. We went to some out of the way fab wineries that most folks don’t know about. They supplied a yummy lunch that melded perfectly with our tasting at that point. They know EVERYONE and can hook you up for dinner or anything else. We Highly recommend A Great Oregon Wine tour… even if you don’t drink wine!!!!! They are great!

Wayne and Camille are the best people!

My wife and I have taken 3 or 4 tours with A Great Oregon Wine Tour... We began taking them annually, as a day-after Thanksgiving tradition, but most recently spent a day of our honeymoon with them, drinking great wine with great people.

I think there are two things that make the experience particularly special with these folks:

1) They're personable! They provide an incredibly knowledgeable, but equally approachable experience. Friendly, boisterous at times, humble, and real. They're guides will "read the room" and adjust accordingly. It is truly a stress-free experience.

2) They know wine country. If you want to know the intracacies of the topography, they can provide it. Want to know what a wine maker's background is? They know it. They know who's selling who fruit, and what that fruit is being turned in to.

I can't say enough nice things about out experiences, but can say that we will absolutely do another tour when we're back in Oregon.

I was struggling trying to find something to do special for my husband’s 50th birthday that was safe and met the CDC guidelines. Deciding to wine taste and use Wayne’s services ended up making for one of the best birthdays my husband has celebrated. Wayne was professional, showed up in a very nice Mercedes bus that was clean, and knew more about Oregon wines than anyone I’ve ever met in Oregon! I highly recommend using A Great Oregon Wine Tours. Hands down the best!

We are HUGE wine people from California. Took this tour 8 years ago and loved it so much we looked it up again when we returned. Wayne really knows his stuff and customized a perfect day for us. The van was very clean and comfortable and Wayne is great to talk to; very knowledgeable about wine and just a fun guy to be around. We've taken about 10 wine tours all over the world and this is by far our favorite due to the customization, clean and comfortable ride, and great company. The lunch spread was delicious also! He knows a lot about the valley and the wine makers and takes you to the places YOU want to go to, not the places that the wineries want you to go to. This tour is worth every penny and we will definitely do it again when we return.

This was truly a fantastic tour. From the day we contacted "Handsome Wayne" through our tour we had a tremendous experience, and open communication throughout. We shared that we had never done a tasting in the Willamette Valley and were open to regional highlights for wineries as well as a few distilleries. Wayne provide us that, and so much more! We visited four wineries, one distillery and an olive oil tasting as well and enjoyed a lovely charcuterie lunch prepared for us at one of the vineyards along the way. As soon as we embarked on our tour, Wayne began with a history of the Willamette Valley, background on the Pinot grapes grown there, history of each of the wineries we were visiting and fun little tidbits along the way. Though not all of the wines were our favorite, Wayne truly made the day enjoyable and ensured we had everything we needed from water, to extra snacks, to wine. A great day of wine and knowledge!

Wayne took us to some truly beautiful wineries with fantastic wine and knowledgeable staff members. We all had a great time and learned a lot about the wines of the region. He took us to Hyland, Moffett and Eminent Domaine, which were all wonderful. Moffett Wineries was one of the best tasting experiences we have ever had; beautiful views and we met the winemaker himself! Wayne is awesome and such a fun person who has so much knowledge about wine and the region. Highly recommend taking a tour with A Great Oregon Wine Tour! You will learn so much, drink delicious wine and have a blast!

Hi Ashley and thank you for the review. Wayne said he had a nice time with you guys and you seemed to really enjoy the tour. Ya, Wayne does know a lot about wine and particularly the Northern Willamette valley. I hope you enjoyed your time in Portland and that you make it back out here sometime and we can take you to 3 more cool wineries. Sincerely, Camille

Had a great time on our Willamette Valley wine tour with Camille and our Mt. Hood Loop tour with Terri. Both were super friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience quite unforgettable, and Wayne was a pleasure to work with while organizing everything. Definitely don't miss out on exploring all Oregon has to offer with this wonderful group of people!

This was a stellar tour. Wayne took us to a few awesome wineries and taught us a ton of stuff we didn’t know about how to truly learn about and enjoy wine. He is a great “edu-tainer”. We learned a bunch and had a great time doing it. Compared to other tours this one was more personable, educational, and enjoyable. Can’t recommend enough.

Thank you very much for such a great review. I truly LOVE what I do and always hope that comes across to my guests. If you EVER want to go out again just give me a call. There's over 500 wineries to choose from here in the Willamette Valley, we've just hit the tip of the iceberg. My 2021 wish to you from the bounty of Oregon.. Good Beers, Good Wine, Good Friends and good Fortune.. Wayne

Had an exceptional weekend with Wayne "the Wizard" Oppenheimer from A Great Wine Tour - celebrating my wife and my 10 year anniversary and my brother in-law and his wife’s 11 year anniversary in Willamette Valley.

Wayne is passionate about wine and loves teaching people about Oregon wine. Wayne knows the entire valley well.

Wayne is more than a tourist - he became our friend and we look forward to the next time we go to the Oregon region. He catered our trip to our preference and what he thought would give us the best experience.

Wayne and I spoke months prior and immediately I knew the trip to Wine country would be entertaining based on our conversations. We had to postpone our trip to Oregon in January to March due to Omicron and flight cancellations - Wayne was very understanding and accommodating because we were flying in from Orlando, FL.

Wayne picked us up at the Willamette Bed and Breakfast with his Silver nails, ready to begin our two day wine adventure - exploring seven wineries. The choices of the wineries was a collaborative effort with me giving my suggestion with an itinerary, adjusted with winemakers and vineyards that Wayne believed we would enjoy - which he was correct. We started off on a hilltop in a Trailer with Trent Moffett - totally different than any other wine experience, but probably one of the best experiences. Very knowledgeable winemaker who grew up in the industry in Napa, then brought his skills to Willamette. The entire trip Wayne was describing the topography, plants, wineries, the history, and provided very funny stories. Later we spent time at Ayoub - a winery that we have been to before and Wayne reminded us how much of an experience it is to visited Mo Ayoub in his own home. We were scheduled to go to one of the bigger wineries, but made an audible - decided to go to Hyland Vineyard is deeply rooted in Oregon Wine history. Great choice by Wayne - winery is one of the oldest and best places we went during this trip.

Our first day was incredible; however, Day Two was an experience that we have never participated in the past. We spent all morning with Ryan Sherman who is the winemaker of Communiquè - spent hours learning about the wine process, tasting wines from the barrels in the storage room, and created a friendship that should last forever. Afterwards we continued our travels to Bethel Heights, which was the most gorgeous of all the wineries and the wine complemented the beauty of it’s surroundings. We finished the day at Cristom winery and it was a perfect ending to our wine adventure with Wayne.

Thank you Wayne for an exceptional wine experience.
