Located in the heart of the agriculturally-rich Willamette Valley, McMinnville is surrounded by hills lined with vineyards. Hazelnut orchards and wheat fields spread across the Willamette Valley while Mt. Hood rises in the distance. We're a small, historic town with big city amenities that's an easy drive from Portland, the coast, and Oregon's capital, Salem.
