Chehalem Mountains

The range that separates the urban sprawl of Portland from the Willamette Valley itself, holding back heat from the east and catching rain from the west. Soils here feature basalt, marine sedimentary uplift and wind-blown loess on the eastern slopes. There’s a huge variation in what is produced here, depending on elevation and soil types, though undoubtedly some of the regions finest wines can be found here.
