Portland Monthly Magazine recommends Newberg as a perfect wine destination for fall: “[...]Just past Sherwood, we’re suddenly shot through a green tunnel of tree canopy and out into another world. Blue signs point to farms just off the highway (and to a farmhouse brewery, Wolves and People). There’s the classic 99W Drive-In. And the surrounding hills hide wineries and vineyards galore. [...] Break up the boozier stops with a peek into Chapters/Cream Northwest coffeehouse/bookstore/scoop shop; Velour, a vintage-and-new clothing store where you might find an old Jantzen swimsuit, a wool watch cap, and some perfectly broken-in overalls...” Read the article >

Thrillist shares some of the best places to watch the fall leaves change color: “Towns like McMinnville and Newberg provide a launch-point for wine country, as well as their own sites, like Newberg’s Bald Peak State Park, which overlooks the town and its surroundings.” Read the article >

Forbes finds plenty of charm on Newberg’s lavender trail: “On a recent visit to Oregon, I hit the lavender trail in Newberg (a quaint city in the famed Willamette Valley wine country, a little under an hour outside of Portland) and followed the route to u-pick farms and restaurants, hotels, breweries, and shops that are celebrating lavender season in different delicious ways — all with added safety measures in place, of course.” Read the article >

KGW News recommends a visit to Wayward Winds during peak lavender season: “Wayward Winds Lavender is the biggest u-pick farm in Oregon, with over 12 acres to roam. With the 16th annual Lavender Festival canceled this year over coronavirus, u-pick farms are great places to practice physical distancing while wandering through fields of purple-beauty with your family.” Watch the segment here >
