I will be spending a few days in Portland, OR (first-time visit) on business in March. I won't have a lot of free time but I would like to spend some of it visiting some Willamette Valley wineries if possible. My plan right now is to arrive at PDX the day before -- my flight arrives at 11:30 AM, so I figure that allowing for baggage claim & rental car pickup I should be on my way by 1:30 PM. My questions are:
1. Would this allow enough time for even a brief Willamette Valley drive?
2. If so, which 2 or 3 wineries would you recommend? I love Pinot Noir and also enjoy whites such as sauvignon blanc and non-oaky chardonnay.
