      The BEST day!!
      The easiest and best way to do wine country. We had a blast! The van is clean and comfy. The driver was safe, super organized and really knowledgeable. The wineries were all awesome and they had tables waiting for us. Countryside is beautiful. It made for a relaxing day that was completely hassle free. I can’t recommend this company enough!

      Perfect day in wine country!
      My husband and I went with another couple and could not have had a better time using NW Wine Shuttle! We loved how easy it was to take our take our time at the wineries, and know that when we were ready to leave our shuttle would be waiting. With one arriving every 30 minutes, it worked out perfectly. The customer service was great too! The owners, Kim and Sam, are wonderful! They answered my questions before hand, and gave great recommendations for views and picnic friendly wineries. I can’t wait to use this service again now that fall is stsrting in the PNW!

      The best way to spend your day!
      We just finished our tour with NW Wine Shuttles and they absolutely exceeded all expectations. We had our 16-month old son with us and Kim and our drivers Patsy and Paul were so accommodating and helpful. Kim (the owner) gave us suggestions on the most family friendly wineries and was always quick to respond to us on email leading up to the tour. Patsy and Paul were great the day of the tour driving us back to our original location a couple hours earlier because our little guy couldn't make the whole day! We had such a great, easy day and would recommend NW wine shuttles to anyone!

      Very Convenient, Slightly Rushed
      We spent all day this past Saturday with NW Wine Shuttle. First, I will say we had a wonderful time, and there were a TON of good wineries on the list of stops. We were pretty satisfied with the selection. Our driver was also fabulous. We brought a cooler with lunch in it and he held it for us until we wanted to eat, he also gave us descriptions of the wineries as we went by, which we thought was very nice. The only issue we had was a little snafu with the scheduling. When we booked, the shuttle was supposed to pick up at 9:40 am, but they changed the schedule the week we went pushing to a later pick up at 10:40, and we missed that detail in the email that was sent the day before, so we were waiting quite a while. We also were a little bit rushed and really couldn't spend longer than an hour at any place since the last pick up shuttle was at 4:30. I think it would have felt a little more leisurely with that extra hour, but nonetheless, we had a great time and would definitely do it again!

      Wine Country Tour w/out the worries of driving
      This is a wonderful tour option within the Portland area. With a pickup from downtown Portland, it is easy to uber or even park downtown and walk to the pickup location. The shuttle ride was comfortable. If you feel like it, you can easily meet others on the bus and find out where they are thinking about going first, etc. (Note: Not a bad idea since it may help you plan your own route.) The winery options on the route are excellent for the Dundee Hills AVA. The wineries are a mix of small and large which makes it enjoyable. The hop on/hop off was a nice option as you could easily plan your day and time as each place. Overall: It was an excellent tour option for the valley especially if you wanted to visit the Dundee Hills AVA and some of the nicer wineries within this AVA (Domaine Serene, White Rose, Archery Summit, Stoller, etc.).

      GREAT option to see the Willamette Valley wine country
      My wife and I came to McMinnville, Oregon, for our 10-yr wedding anniversary to see the Willamette Valley wine country Such a great trip! Seeking an option that would allow us to visit multiple wineries on a Saturday, without the need to designate a driver, we found NW Wine Shuttle. We couldn't have been more pleased. NW Wine Shuttle has two airport shuttle-style vans that follow a 12-winery loop from 10a-5pm. You can choose as many wineries as you wish during that time, as the vans pull up roughly every 30 minutes. What a great option! Highly recommend. Of note: Patsy, our primary driver, was so nice. She handled herself with patience, dignity, and a great sense of humor, even toward the end of the day when multiple passengers had drunk too many fermented grapes in the sun, and even when an impatient passenger on another tour bus yelled at her (which was wholly unwarranted, by our view, by the way). What blew our mind was that the company was the only of its kind in the Valley and that it had only been in business since May 2018. It is cheaper ($50/person) and way more efficient than hiring a private driver ($65-90/hour, with 4-5-hour minimum), who would sit in a parking lot for 90% of his contracted time, waiting for you.

      Fabulous, affordable option!
      We were so thrilled to find this option for visiting wineries in the Willamette Valley, as it was less expensive than getting a driver for the day. It more than met expectations! It was flexible, easy, clean and convenient! They even stored our bottles of wine for us after each stop. Our driver Cindy was great. Would highly recommend NW Wine Shuttle to anyone!

      Thrilled with this experience
      This is a wonderful and affordable option to visit a number of great wineries. Mitch was our driver - extremely pleasant and friendly- and we had a great time chatting with him in between winery visits. The tracker app is a nice touch as it allowed for us to see where the shuttle was. We received excellent recommendations about where to visit and got to choose our own adventure between over 10 wineries. Really happy we went this route instead of dropping hundreds on a private driver.

    My husband and I were in Oregon for a weekend of wine tasting and were surprised to find that there weren't many organized wine tasting tours (like in Napa and Sonoma). However, we found the NW Wine Shuttle and decided to give it a try. We're so happy that we did because we had a fantastic time! The shuttle allows you to be able to choose what wineries you visit (they offer an impressive variety of wineries that the shuttle goes to) and for how long you want to stay. We never had to wait very long for the shuttle, and it was so easy getting from one place to the other. Also, our shuttle drivers and the coordinator (Adrian) were all so kind and knowledgeable, and really wanted to make sure we had the best time possible! I would highly recommend the NW Wine Shuttle to anyone who is looking to do some wine tasting in the Willamette Valley area!

    The tour’s hop on hop off style is perfect! If you like a winery you can linger and if you don’t you can just go to the next one. The buses come every half hour and sometimes even more frequently than that. There are lots of different winery choices so there’s something for every group.
    If you flew in on Alaska airlines check and see if their free tasting fees promotion applies to you. Could save you even more money :).

    My husband and I joined this tour of the Dundee Valley for two days. The drivers were friendly and safe, and they conveniently picked us up around the corner from our hotel in McMinnville. The service runs exactly as they describe; two buses make rounds at 11 wineries every 30 minutes. Some of the wineries we wanted to visit were not scheduled stops, however they were walkable from one on the route, which we did. They have a convenient tracker app that allows you to see exactly where the busses are so you can plan accordingly. They also tag and hold all of your purchases so you’re free to buy as much wine as you want! We had two fabulous days and we can’t say enough great things about the wines, views and this service. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

    We took the shuttle for a private tour. This is an excellent way to see Oregon wine country without the hassle of getting between the wineries. Excellent customer service from experienced staff.

    Our driver Kim was exceptionally helpful and knowledgeable. We visited a total of five wineries with a great selection of wines. Beautiful views and responsive service at all of them. We had access to private tasting rooms (available to groups), but were never pressured to buy wine and members of our group were able to share tastings if they desired.

    NW wine shuttle were extremely accommodating and we never felt rushed. This made for a relaxing day in some of Oregon's most beautiful scenery. I will bring friends from Europe on the NW wine shuttle in summer where we will use their hopper service.

    The scenery makes for an excellent picnic location (we ate ours at a winery). Otherwise there are excellent food options at the shuttle base which you could also use throughout the day before hopping back on the bus. So easy!

    Portland is close by and several members of our group got there by sharing an Uber/Lyftt. We got friends/family to pick us up though since Dundee is not currently served by ride sharing apps. I think an excellent addition would be a shuttle at the beginning/end of each day to Portland. The company is so customer focused though I am sure they will help arrange this if possible.

    Strongly recommend. Try it!

    One of the most affordable and enjoyable wine tasting tours we've ever experienced. Our driver was great and Adrian, the coordinator, seems the embodiment of customer service. All of us went to different wineries and, yet, none of us waited longer than a few minutes for our ride to the next tasting. They also stored our purchases, so we didn''t have to carry them from one venue to the next. Great experience, all the way around. Oh, and the wines were quite good, as well!

    We were SO relieved when we found the NW Wine Shuttle. After all, who wants to deal with driving while drinking beautiful Oregon wines. Believe me, I checked out every private tour/car company around and none could compete with the Wine Shuttle in terms of price, variety of wineries to chose from etc. Don't think twice, just book. On top of the convenience, the service could not have been better. Everyone was SO nice and accommodating. We actually made friends with the few other folks on the shuttle. There weren't a lot of us so we could basically use it as a private car. We would call or text when we were ready to go and in 5 minutes it was there! With bottles of water too :) By far the best way to tour the wineries!
