The final episode of Bravo's Top Chef: Portland was held at Willamette Valley Vineyards' Estate in the Salem Hills. We were honored to be selected as the filming location for the finale of Season 18 which highlighted some of the best culinary experiences Oregon has to offer.
Visiting from out of town?
Founded in 1983 by Oregon native Jim Bernau with the dream of creating world-class Pinot Noir, Jim cleared away an old pioneer plum orchard in the Salem Hills and watered the vines by hand using 17 lengths of garden hose to get the grapelings through their first summer. Willamette Valley Vineyards has grown from a bold idea into one of the region’s leading wineries, earning the title “One of America’s Great Pinot Noir Producers” from Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
