Tours and Transportation
There is so much to see, do and taste in the Willamette Valley. A great way to experience it is to leave the logistics to the pros, by signing up for a tour with private transportation. In addition to providing safe and easy transportation, these tour providers know the “ins and outs” of the Valley and can help you make the most of your visit. The tour providers on this page are trusted partners that The Dundee works with all the time. All of them pick-up and drop-off at the hotel. We know that, like us, they care deeply about ensuring you have a great time and will provide you with a phenomenal Oregon Wine Country experience.
Black Tie Tours
Black Tie tours offers customized, private wine country tours, they work with you to build the perfect itinerary, and with roots in the Valley, they bring a wealth of knowledge about wine, mushrooms (their family opened The Joel Palmer House Restaurant), and all that Oregon has to offer. Their vehicles are always clean, and their drivers are always courteous, knowledgeable and on-time. Their philosophy: “Oregon is the star – we are the lens. Take a peek!” They can accommodate groups from 1-25 and offer both wine country and truffle hunting tours.
Wine Collectors Experience with Black Tie
For the most discerning and sophisticated wine lovers, The Dundee has partnered with Black Tie Tours for our Wine Collector’s Experience, a deep dive into Oregon Pinot and the nuance of the region. After learning about your interests, we will arrange visits at three of our six winery partners to meet the owners, winemakers, and learn about their stories (an experience most visitors never get), with a lunch featuring local, seasonal ingredients served along the way. Take advantage of this exclusive opportunity and let us do all the planning. The package includes a two night stay in a luxe suite (add nights as needed), a full day of private transportation, and wine to take home at each stop.
Winery Partners: Granville Winery, Ayres Winery, Hazelfern, Bells Up Winery, Elevee Winegrowers, and Native Flora
